PACEI dissolved not because it failed to find anything, but because it never had the chance, due to lack of cooperation from states and the left’s lawfare, which was eating up all the time of the staff assigned to the commission. bit.ly/32QQ0AW

The complainant, Wisconsin Voter Alliance, is an unincorporated association of voters based in Suamico, Wisconsin, “that desires to have clean and fair elections in the state of Wisconsin."

Government targeting a demographic to increase turnout is the opposite side of the same coin as targeting a demographic to suppress the vote.

The Alliance argues that the use of the funds violates Wisconsin law prohibiting the provision of monies to election officials to induce persons to vote or influence an election outcome.

@NPR analysis reported that over 550,000 mail-in ballots have been rejected in the 2020 presidential primaries - "almost certainly an underestimate" since not all states released the number of rejected ballots.

The @NPR analysis noted that this is far beyond the 318,728 ballots rejected in the 2016 general election.

Ballots can be rejected for mistakes like missing signatures, but a number of ballots are not arriving on time in the first place and thereby being rejected.

#Virginia @FreeBeacon Registration redux...

Data from one county's jury pools, drawn from voter registration rolls, [found] that 3 percent of the prospective jury pool—a total of 12,917 people—were ineligible-self-reporting as non-citizens.

@alanagoodman bit.ly/3iVZLms
#Virginia @FreeBeacon Say sorry @scsj?

One percent self-reported as convicted felons, who are also ineligible to vote. An additional 2 percent were "likely unlawful participants due to self-reporting as non-English speaking."

@alanagoodman bit.ly/3iVZLms
#Virginia @FreeBeacon

Another 6 percent "are worthy of further investigation due to the undeliverability, and non-response, to the solicitation for jury duty, which is a crime in Virginia."

“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."
