I’m creating a thread regarding all the reported issues w/ #ElectionDay in #harriscounty & why I think the elections administrator should resign or be fired: @LongoriaTx @AdrianGarciaHTX @RodneyEllis @HCPrecinct4 @TomSRamsey2 (1) these machines had just been in 2 prior elections
(2) logic and accuracy testing took nine days when it should’ve just taken one. they had two prior elections to test too. The relatively small size of this ballot dictates it should’ve actually taken just a few hours. Day-of L&A was delayed till evening due to user error.
(3) remember after the September Logic and Accuracy fiasco, the EA swore they would hire back elections employees that knew what they were doing to prevent it from happening again. This did not happen. Consequences of getting rid of good employees simply because of politics

Where things stand the morning after #ElectionDay:

🗳 Prop 119 (increase pot taxes for private, out-of-school learning opportunities): Appears to fail.

Supporters of 119 on Tuesday night conceded defeat.
🗳 Prop 120 (property tax cut): Appears to fail.

By 8:45 p.m. Tuesday, 120 had the support of only about 43 percent of voters, and backers conceded it looked likely to fail.

That figure has stayed steady through the latest counts early Wednesday morning.
🗳 Amendment 78 (would have given the state legislature direct authority over more aspects of state spending): Appears to fail.

Because 78 would change the state constitution, it needs at least 55% of the vote to pass. 78's organizer conceded that was unlikely to happen.

It’s #ElectionDay in Virginia with a projected close race for Governor.

Elections Commissioner Chris Piper says about 20% of 5.9 million registered voters in Virginia voted early.

That’s more than 6x the number from 2017 - COVID effects/new laws/shifting preferences @13NewsNow
Starting a thread from here. More than the Governor’s race is on the ballot - Lt. Gov, AG plus all 100 House of Delegate seats are on the table.

Election officials expect pre-processing of absentee ballots to be done by 7 - we’ll closely track when CAP results come in @13NewsNow

Good morning, and Happy #ElectionDay! It's 6:30 here at the Montpelier precinct I'm working. Still not daylight, but I've been here for more than an hour and a half, and we've had 51 voters since the polls opened at 6.
For context, there are 2350 voters in this precinct, 474 of which chose early/absentee voting.
Up to 210 in person voters as of 8:30.

It's lunchtime now, right?

Good morning. It is #ElectionDay in California. Here are the final early vote numbers before the polls open for the #NoOnRecall election. We had a final surge of more than 415K votes after @POTUS' rally.

Dems: 4.5M (+176K)
GOP: 2.2M (+141K)
Indies: 1.9M (+97K)
@POTUS Nearly 40% turnout in just the early vote. I have no idea what the E-Day returns will be, but this shit will be called moments after the polls close.
Needless to say, rumors of Democratic disengagement in off-year elections by the punditry were completely, utterly wrong.

Infographic ℹ️ What Happened in #Atlanta on #ElectionNight?

In recent days, the fog of incomplete and conflicting information provided by interested parties has begun to clear. (Thread👇)…
It now appears that a state election monitor was absent for a part of the counting process.

It is also clear that GOP #PollWatchers were prevented from meaningfully observing much of the process, even though they were allowed in the room.
On Aug. 10, the State Election Board approved a new rule allowing election officials to start opening and scanning #AbsenteeBallots 3 weeks before #ElectionDay.

The state is currently being sued over the rule.

In the fallout from the #2020Election, numerous credible allegations of voting #Irregularities have arisen in the form of sworn #Affidavits and other #Evidence.

ℹ️This #Infographic provides an overview of what we currently know. (Thread👇) Read more:…
1. This year, universal #MailInBallots were widely adopted by states in response to the #Pandemic.

This year, 9 states plus #WashingtonDC mailed #Ballots to everyone on their voter rolls, while others suspended the witness requirement.
2. #Progressive groups in many states sued to ease #ElectionSecurity features for #MailInBallots and, in some cases, to allow #Ballots to arrive after #ElectionDay.

Trump loses yet again in #Pennsylvania. From 3rd Circuit: "The campaign's claims have no merit." The Trump-appointed judge says the challenged ballots are few, margin of Biden victory is 81k and the suit "never claims fraud or that votes were cast by illegal voters."
"Though it alleges many conclusions, the Complaint is light on facts," the appeals court opinion states. The opinion was written by Judge Stephanos Bibas, who Trump appointed.

There are some sick burns in this opinion.
Just saying.…
This is CLASSIC chiding as the judge writes Trump's campaign"waited almost a week after #ElectionDay to file the original complaint, almost another week to amend it, then another 3 days to amend it again. Its delay is inequitable, and further delay would wreak further inequity."

(1/6) Interesting case in #Pennsylvania re: #Election2020 & mail-in voting. Did PA’s General Assembly enact the mail-in voting law in violation of PA’s Constitution? More than 150 years of PA Supreme Court precedent suggests they did.…
(2/6) One case requiring in-person voting (unless PA Constitution otherwise allows) goes back to 1864. Another precedent in 1924: “The ballot cannot be sent by mail...[PA Sup Ct] cannot be persuaded that the [PA] Constitution ever contemplated any such mode of voting."
(3/6) The precedent continues: “The [PA] Constitution meant, rather, that the voter, in propria persona [i.e., in person], should offer his vote...”

The PA Constitution has been amended to permit absentee voting, but not general mail-in voting.

How #American #Elections Work: A Thread👇

The #TrumpCampaign and its allies have filed #lawsuits to try to block some key states from certifying #Election2020results results that show #Democrat @JoeBiden defeating President @realDonaldTrump.
After #ElectionNight , certifying the #results is a step #states take so that winners can be officially #confirmed. The @AP and other #media outlets on Saturday declared @JoeBiden the #WINNER of the #PresidentialElection2020
after analyses concluded that @RealdonqldTrump couldn’t gain enough votes from remaining ballots to surpass @JoeBiden.

I got a little sidetracked yesterday with breaking news, phone interviews and Zoom meetings and apparently, according to some people, wasn't tweeting enough about Republicans not accepting the election results.

I interviewed GOP consultant @stusandler...

Thread continued...
Interview Sandler and @AdrianHemond for a Great Lakes Bay Economic Club about the election.

Sandler refused to concede @JohnJamesMI, one of his clients, lost.

"There are states where (Trump) is down by 2/10ths of a percentage point," Sandler said.
"Donald Trump was on his way to winning in a landslide before COVID hit," @stusandler said.

OK, but he didn't. Perhaps cause of his handling of COVID?

Stu acknowledged Trump may have been hurt in early absentee voting for not taking it seriously enough.…

This could be Trump “trying to slow down counts in individual states, in the hopes that those states don’t complete their job of certifying election results in time for the electoral college to meet” & then tell state legislators to vote DT slates in states won by Biden.
“In the birthplace of our republic, counting votes is NOT a bad thing. Counting votes cast on or before #ElectionDay  by eligible voters is NOT corruption. It is NOT cheating.
It is democracy.”

—Al Schmidt,
Republican Philly election commissioner

“There really should not be a disagreement, regardless of party affiliation, when we’re talking about counting votes cast on or before #ElectionDay  by eligible voters. It’s not a very controversial thing—or at least it shouldn’t be.”

1/ Super-high turnout is because of a couple things:

1. TRUMP. He has been a polarizing president -- either love him or passionately hate him, and he turned out the vote, for him and against; ...
2/ 2. MAIL-IN BALLOTS. States, like CO/WA that have been virtually all-mail have very high participation rates. That went national this year for the first time. ...
3/ These are fact-based reasons for why there is high turnout. Unfortunately, too many people jump to conspiracies because it fits their prior-held beliefs. It's called confirmation bias. ...
