Instead of a long thread, I’ll just make a comment about a convo today with a friend at the golf course.
We caught up, chatted about politics in general and she told me her worries about the CA Recall election being full of fraud.
I listened, then told her I was a Poll Inspector getting ready to go set up my precinct after leaving the course. She asked me the following:
1. Are voting machines really connected to the Internet?
2. How can I be sure fraud isn’t happening?
A. There are so many verifications and 2 person auditing at the precinct level first, then to the elections office, then to the State level, everything has a paper trail and verification by numerous people.
3. What about ensuring the machines are tampered with?
A. We have a 2 person verification that occurs at almost every level, balancing the count at the end, 2 people delivering ballot bags, paper trails. I can assure you it’s not tampered with.
All she said, “Because it’s you, I feel so much better and I believe you. Thanks for telling me that information. I really feel better.”
I said, Good. You’re welcome.
CA is a good state and has a good system, the rest is just Right Wing chatter. IMO.
She hugged me and i left.
See you after tomorrow…..Long day coming.

So, to my point.
My husband was notified on Sunday evening that he had to get tested for COVID. Evidently, someone who was vaccinated, tested positive in the office along with 10 others. A total of 14 are being quarantined until they test negative.

THREAD on the RECALL election in CA and comparisons to the RECALL election of Gray Davis in 2003. It’s important for context because of the media coverage that feels very negative for Newsom
Gray Davis, for those that remember, was Governor of CA from 1999-2003 and had a successful career in CA as a solid public servant. He won his election to governor with 57.9% of the total vote and the GOP candidate (Dan Lungren) received 34.8%.
Gray ran as a centrist Democrat.
Gray focused on schools and education which, at the time, was a big topic in CA (among other things). Gray was recalled with just 2 months left in his term of office.
And as y’all know, Schwarzenegger won the recall election with just ~960K votes more

As many of you know (or maybe not) I’m a poll worker for CA elections of all kinds.
Last year I worked the Federal Election/State too., and this year the RECALL election.
Here’s some updates for those that want to know….
For whatever reason, Twitter isn’t allowing this thread for me to send.
So I’ll do it this way

Let’s not forget…..
3 out of 9 member of the Board of Governor’s are Democrats or appointed by Joe Biden.
The other 6 are all TFG appointees
That’s why DeJoy is still there.
Now, @jheckmanWFED might be able to explain this better than I can. Ron was appointed to fill the remainder of a 7 yr term that was expiring in Dec. 2020. He’s in a holdover year.
That would suggest that his position expires in Dec 2021.

Next up
John Barger
Lucky for us he’s set to have his term expire on Dec 8, 2021 and I would bet we have someone already to be appointed in the wings by Joe Biden

Because I was in a training for the recall in CA today as an Inspector, these questions came up by a trainee in the audience.

1. Can you confirm that you use Dominion machines?
Q. 2 - Can you confirm these Dominion machines are connected to the internet during the voting period.
A. NO. They are never connected to the internet.
Q. 3 - Data was exposed at a conference related to voting machines by Dominion, what did you do to secure them?
A. (In part) We have used Dominion machines since they have been operating. We know them well. We purchased new machines in 2002 and 2018. All software has been updated and routinely tested before each election
