#Tennessee! Pls help confirm to the extent we can that this election is free & fair. Pls sign up to photograph precinct results outside polls after polls close Tues. We at @ProtectVotes will compare them to reported totals to verify they match. Sign up in post 2. TY! 1/ #MEMPHIS

NEW: Here's an updated look at Tennessee's #COVID19 transmission number (R0), and where the most cases are over the last 10 days. (Data current as of July 6.)

Find this and more resources on the public health response to the pandemic here ➡️ vumc.org/health-policy/… Image
As a reminder, an R0 above 1.0 means the virus is spreading and gaining momentum, and people who are infected are infecting more than 1 other person on average.

In 2015, election commissioner @benniejsmith (below) showed that ES&S’s voting system in #MEMPHIS was deleting votes from predominantly black precincts. His personal experience growing up black in America fuels his quest for election integrity. Pls listen. #BlackLivesMatter 1/

Version 3 of the #CFBPlayoff rankings were released last night. What you expected? If youve followed along since early Oct you know the process. You werent surprised. For the rest of you, lets take a look & compare to what was projected using the same process used for 5 yrs.
First off, why does the committee use this process? Think about it. 14 busy guys make up this committee. They have roughly 60 hrs from when the last game ends on Sat to when they need to have this Top 25 created on Tues. If they evaluate only 30 teams to get that 25, how much
time is adequate to evaulate? 1 hr? Thats 30 hrs of evaluation. Half the time is gone & no one has slept. The process of getting a consensus out of 14 people hasnt even started. Thats why this process is kept so simple, & its why they have a defined predictable process.
