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.

#Philadelphia #ElectionOfficials are doing all they can to crank up bias in this year’s elections. The latest? Accepting a $10,000,000 cash payment from a #Chicago based 501(c)(3) “charitable” organization.
#Pennsylvania . @BroadAndLiberty

The Center for Tech and Civic Life @HelloCTCLexpects #Philadelphia to run elections the way the outsiders in #Chicago want the election to be run, or else.

No word if the cash came in a brown paper bag.

#Pennsylvania . @BroadAndLiberty @lindakernslaw


We do know the folks in Chicago giving Philadelphia all this cash expect something in return.

Why not? It’s the Philadelphia way.

@Hans von Spakovsky, a senior fellow at the @Heritage #ElectionIntegrity panel: Those states are pushing voting-by-mail “to basically force the 45 other states and the District of Columbia to switch to what those five states are doing.”

“Absentee or mail-in ballots are the most vulnerable to everything from being stolen out of people’s mailboxes to being altered, forged, and they subject voters to being pressured, coerced and intimidated by campaign staffers."

In the last four federal elections, [28 million ballots] were categorized as “unknown” by state #ElectionOfficials, i.e., they don’t know what happened to the ballots after they handed them over to the @USPS to deliver.

Americans are going to their local retail establishments that have implemented all of the safety protocols recommended by health officials. There is no reason why they can't vote in their neighborhood polling places, too.

Moving to all-mail elections would be dangerous. Ironically, it would likely disenfranchise many voters—the opposite outcome of what proponents of such a change desire.

#AbsenteeBallots are the form of voting most vulnerable to being stolen, altered or forced. Hundreds of thousands of ballots have been rejected for defects. Millions more have been undelivered, misdelivered or reported missing.

It is unwise because absentee or mail-in ballots are voted outside the supervision and overview of #ElectionOfficials—thus destroying the secret ballot, an important hallmark of American elections for more than a century.

They are susceptible to being stolen, altered, and forced. They can lead to the intimidation and improper pressuring of voters in their homes.

Let’s not overlook the errant vulnerabilities and vagaries of being misdirected or not delivered by the postal system.

.@ElectionLawCt J. Christian Adams, @PILFoundation president, said the county deserves credit.

"We found those problems, and the County agreed to fix them," Adams said.

"This settlement demonstrates what can be accomplished when good government groups work with #ElectionOfficials in good faith without the interference of ideologically driven activists who oppose such measures."

"Those same activists push radical changes to vote by mail, which shows how important this settlement was for a clean election in Pennsylvania."

Proponents of forcefully expanded #MailBalloting are making ham-fisted attempts at pursuing longstanding #ElectionLaw reforms on the backs of a crisis. @LCChurchwell #ElectionFraud #2020Election
Advocates for mandatory mail-in ballot elections often claim they are expanding democracy. What they overlook, however, is that the #MailVoting systems have gaping flaws.
@LCChurchwell #ElectionFraud #2020Election
In the last decade, 30 million mail ballots were sent to the wrong addresses and/or went missing entirely, according to #ElectionOfficials. That level of failure would not be acceptable from a private business. @LCChurchwell #ElectionFraud #2020Election

COVID-19—is there anything the #coronavirus can’t do? Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) seem to think it should make the feds tell the states how to run their elections. #2020Elections #ElectionMandate
#ElectionIntegrity @HvonSpakovsky
Our Founders designed this structure because they understood that giving the federal government authority to run elections would also give that government the ability to manipulate election rules to ensure their desired election outcomes. @HvonSpakovsky
According to Sen. Klobuchar’s March 18 press release the “disaster” bill would require every state to offer at least 20 days of #EarlyVoting and “no-excuse” #AbsenteeBalloting. Talk about gilding the lily! @HvonSpakovsky
