.@COSecofState/@JenaGriswold plans to make cheating in #Colorado #elections MUCH easier via her upcoming Aug. 3rd rules hearing re: Rule 8 CR 1505-1. In addition to not allowing 3rd parties to #audit #election equipment, here are a more of her proposed new rules. #copolitics 1/x
Sec. 2.13.2  – Ultra-partisan #Democrat @COSecofState will now handle inactive #voter registration cancelations, which used to be handled by county clerks. She’s trying to take away county-level power over this. | #Colorado #copolitics 2/x

@FrankLaRose @GovMikeDeWine you have some explaining to do.

88 counties in Ohio and nearly ALL 88 counties have a perfect correlated line?!?! Something looks VERY fishy.

@Jim_Jordan more evidence
Correlation coefficient is a numerical measure of some type of correlation, meaning a statistical relationship between two variables. The closer R is to 1 --> the greater the relationship correlates. This is not a good thing when it comes to voting!
Why does the ballots lines mirror the predicted which mirrors the registrations which correlates to the census? This is mathematically impossible.

Notice how smooth the census line is? There is no sharp drops/increases, perfectly smooth like you would

Refuser de voter aux prochaines #elections n'est pas un choix pour tout le monde.

Dans un contexte de montée des extrêmes-droites, on doit s'interroger sur le rôle et l'impact de l'#abstention.

Oui, même quand on est anar (ou contre ces faux exercices de démocratie)
Parce que même si les élections à l’échelle restent des pièges démocratiques et des arnaques (et c'est bien le cas) elles ont quand même un enjeu véritable...

D'autant plus pour les femmes, les racisé'es, les queers, les handis, les fol'les, les migrants, les précaires.
Les perspectives de voir arriver des extrêmes-droites par le biais des urnes sont devenues très réelles depuis quelques années et ça il ne faut pas l'oublier.

It’s unusual for #McConnell to hold two news conferences in one week in Washington.

This suggests he’s sees Manchin’s movement on the #votingrights bill as a real threat. Ahead of his newser, he argues it will “supercharge the cancel culture.”

11 Republican Senators are here now speaking out again S1. There are 16 on the speaker’s list.

“I’ve taken a look at the new state laws. None of them are designed to suppress the vote,” McConnell says.

.@LindseyGrahamSC argues the provisions in the #ForThePeopleAct were created before any of these new state laws were created. He maintains efforts to characterize Republicans as racist for opposing it will fail. #votingrights

I have (finally) published a statistical analysis on possible voter manipulation in the 2021 Albanian parliamentary elections:….

See the recommendations section for more, but here are a few key highlights.

#Albania #AlbanianElections2021 #elections

The turnout/ PS vote share 2D histogram, employed by political scientists and other researchers, shows no extreme fraud or coercive voting irregularities, such as vote rigging, at the most granular level of data -- polling stations.

This is good news.

But, is there any indication of *voter* rigging?

I employed an information-theoretic metric to test my conjecture that the ruling PS may have engaged in voluntary voter manipulation (e.g. clientelism, other favoritism).

Covid-19: Social Murder, they wrote—elected, unaccountable, and unrepentant

BMJ 2021; 372 doi:… (Published 04 February 2021)

Cite this as: BMJ 2021;372:n314

What went wrong in the global governance of #covid-19?
After two million deaths, we must have redress for mishandling the #pandemic
Murder is an emotive word. In law, it requires premeditation. Death must be deemed to be unlawful. How could “murder” apply to failures of a pandemic response?
Perhaps it can’t, and never will, but it is worth considering. When #politicians and #experts say that they are willing to allow tens of thousands of premature deaths for the sake of population immunity or in the hope of propping up the economy,

Today I want to share some history I’ve hinted at, never expanded upon. Gather around for the true story of the 2018 @maricopacounty midterm #elections, and how I ended up leading a team of more than 1K citizens to hand adjudicate 180K ballots & the connection to the #AZAudit
Allow me to introduce myself. I'm Kathren (Kat) Coleman, former Deputy Recorder for Communications under @Adrian_Fontes. I was appointed after working in the elections department as a trainer & then intergov dept as an Election Officer & Lobbyist.
To start, when the Recorder changed in 2017, there were changes that needed to be made to the office, moderizations all around. The first task was to tackle the 97,000 unprocessed voter registrations we found in boxes, a fire hazard in the office.…

#Elections are supposed to be about electing representations for framing legislations

However the geography behind delimitation which doesnt consider complex socio-economic conditions promote communal polarization leading to deterioration of Democractic values

Understanding Delmitation:

The constituency delimitation is based on population. and for last delineation exercise, 2001 population was used. Average population was calculated to be 270000 people per constituency

#Map shows Population spread in Tamil Nadu
To delineate which village/town comes under which constituency, some rules are followed

To achieve the avg population, officials start with headquarters for the constituencies in district & add villages/towns within same or neighbouring taluks(subdistricts) in same district

By Angela:
I'm fed up with reading that Mr #Corbyn was a weak Leader! Compared to #Starmer, I have to laugh. It took a strong Leader to change the Dynamics of the Party for the better, whilst at the same time maintain his objectives against a barrage of non support.
It took a strong Leader to reach out to people left broken with Agendas that havent helped those people that he took the brunt of... It took a strong Leader to rise above the spurious #msm, and a strong Leader to battle the #skullduggery.
It took a strong Leader to hold the #Government to account, and to get evil #Policies reversed, win By #Elections, challenge the #Opposition, and increase #Public support, which he did at his Rallies. That strong Leader achieved unity in a short time.

A polling firm linked to #Brexiteer Nigel #Farage faces scrutiny over a short-lived company that its owner used to do political work for Farage’s party and the 12 million-pound ($15.5 million) campaign he fronted to leave the European Union, according to records and interviews.
As part of a broader probe, investigators for the U.K. Information Commissioner’s Office are seeking details behind more than £186,000s in payments made by Farage’s U.K. #Independence Party (UKIP) to an entity established by the head of the polling firm Survation.
UKIP leaders have been fighting the demand for that information, and other details related to political operations, for almost a year, including in court.
The fact that the inquiry is looking at what role Survation may have played hasn’t been previously reported.

2. "It started out a good day. The day before I celebrated my 14th anniversary with my husband. The cherry blossom tree we planted in the backyard was exploding in pink taffy balls, and the smell of the lilies he got me floated through the living room as I walked to my desk."
