@CISAgov @EACgov Hovland saying states do not have the resources they need to protect #elections. And Election Assistance Commission budget is less than some cities spend on potholes.

The #Ukraine call is enough to impeach Trump. His refusal to respond to House subpoenas makes #impeachment even more likely. Despite Democrats’ strategy to keep the impeachment inquiry simple, the House should subpoena the transcript of Trump’s call w/ #Erdogan.
2/ Trump will no doubt refuse to comply. But an #HJC investigation of the #Erdogan call will winnow fact from fiction & eventually yield witnesses, perhaps another whistleblower.
3/ There are critical reasons for looking more closely at the #Erdogan call. On its face, Trump acted unilaterally against a US ally in support of a dictator hostile to that ally — an abuse of presidential power. Digging deeper, the call has an appearance of #QuidProQuo

#Ohio is using the discredited, biased #PurgeByPostcard game our team is fighting in #Georgia. Our experts say the method is over 70% wrong. That’s 200,000 voters in Ohio set to be wrongly purged this Friday. dispatch.com/news/20190904/…
As @darreldrowland of @DispatchAlerts reports, "#Ohio already removed 265,000 from the voter rolls earlier this year, meaning if another 235,000 come off the books Friday, half-a-million will have been removed this year." dispatch.com/news/20190903/… #PurgeByPostcard #ElectionFraud
@darreldrowland @DispatchAlerts Bob Fitrakis, a top #VotingRights attorney, has already notified #Ohio's GOP Secretary of State, Frank LaRose, that he plans to sue in federal court under the National Voter Registration Act. This purge is a CRIME, and when they steal Ohio they steal the nation! #PurgeByPostcard

As I wrote in my studies, the far right has power to overthrow the government in #Ukraine by force in alliance with oligarchic parties, as such alliance successfully did five years ago during the Maidan. papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cf…

Nigeria’s 2019 Election:
What Are We Missing?
Vote buying. Thuggery. Rigged primaries. Logistical
failures. Official misconduct. Ballot box snatching.
Budget delays. Voter apathy. Intimidation. Turnout
suppression. Inconclusive results. Bribed officials
#NigeriaDecides2019
These and many other challenges routinely undermine the credibility and smooth conduct of elections in Nigeria.

Hey, did you know you can access aggregate voter data from Florida's elections? dos.myflorida.com/elections/data…
The data are not user friendly. You download a zip file, which contains .txt files for each county. You can copy and past into a spreadsheet or upload into a statistical software package. #OpenAccess #Elections dos.myflorida.com/elections/data…
Weird thing though: the aggregate voter information is there for most of the counties, but NOT PALM BEACH @pbpost . The # registered in each precinct is missing. So are the # of votes for each candidate. Just zeros. At least as of today.

1. I was born into a lineage of builders, grew up on construction sites and studied Civil Engineering. There is the basic understanding that a building cannot be strong if the blocks and other materials used are weak. #elections
2. There is no miracle an engineer can perform to build a skyscraper with weak blocks. How do we build a developed country with citizens that are not well educated or skilled, and can hardly understand discussions on development? #elections
3. My heart broke some days back when I chatted with a cousin on phone. It took him 4 years to get into university, and 8 years later, he’s waiting to graduate and to be called up for the NYSC. He just turned 30. #elections

So, the @potus' obsession with our region takes his eye off of the ball.
Unless that is intentional; in that case, it's part of the #Trump2020 campaign.

systemic vulnerabilities in the U.S' #elections systems have been a poorly kept secret; many in the U.S. knew about it before #Putin did.

Every four years we hold a national soap opera to choose the Chief Devourer of the Herd until the next #elections.
Occasionally, we even choose adorable, young candidates, to bring more innocence into the field of politics.
Sadly, 'young' politicians quickly grow older.

Whatever their reputation and activist credentials, our civil services and political offices seems to bring out the devourer in people, young and old alike.

1. My Predictions For 2019:
- #Macron will find it more & more difficult to hold onto power.
- #Merkel won't last until 2021 & her power will further decrease this year quarter by quarter.
- I expect that the #Brexit-Exit-date will be moved (most likely by 12 months).
2. My Predictions For 2019:
- The issues of mass-#migration (few real #refugees) will continue to haunt #Europe, especially #Germany & continue to put pressure on the GER #Groko-government (#CDU/#CSU & #SPD).
#Predictions2019 #Year2019
3. My Predictions For 2019:
- The trend of right parties gaining more power (2018: #Italy, #Austria, #Brazil) will continue: In #France #LePen (#FN) will benefit from #Macron losing power, in #Germany the #AfD will gain further support in Eastern Germany (tbc).

I sometimes feel @georgialibs don't get enough high quality, academic press #history & #sociology books. Using the GA Pines automated system, people who are members of participating libraries can get a number of very good books which have recently come to my attention.
"The oldest living things in the world" by Rachel Sussman gapines.org/eg/opac/record…. This photo essay book is a beautiful, mind-expanding paean to our biosphere. (I realize this is a #science #ecology book)
