Legal maneuverings undermine confidence in election integrity

Scott Robert Shaw



It is a troubling trend. American’s confidence in the outcome of our elections is in decline. A survey by CNN finds just 22% say they are very confident that all votes in the November election will be counted fairly. That is a 13% drop from just four years ago. There are likely many reasons, but chief among them has to be all the ever-changing rules regarding elections. More and more frequently, the politicians are taking to the courts to try to influence the outcome of the election. In Wisconsin, courts are trying right now to decide whether to purge more than 100,000 voters in the state from voting rolls. Just weeks ago a judge ruled Wisconsin clerks can take up to six more days to receive and process absentee ballots. A higher court has since reversed that. And it could change again before the November election. There have been fights over voter ID laws, and concerns about increased voter fraud due to increased absentee votes. And of course, there is still evidence of Russian interference in our elections. We should be able to trust the outcome of the elections, but it is getting harder with the politicians no longer willing to leave well enough alone.

    People have a lack of confidence in elections because lefists can not abide fair election law which builds confidence.
    Picture ID is essentially a high tech purple finger.
    Leftists say Minorities are too ignorant to understand how to negotiate the system of going to the DOT and getting a free ID. Radical judges change the laws 2 or 3 weeks before the elections.
    Now Judges change election law again.
    The uninterested can now be cajoled into filling in their ballots up to election day.
    Look for Judges to rule ballots can be accepted with postmarks a day after the election because the intent was to mail the ballot on election day, they missed the pickup time. They had it on the box, it isn’t their fault the box wasn’t emptied.
    In Michigan a radical judge not only changed election law by accepting passed postmarked ballots, the judge initiated forced ballot Harvesting.
    Radical Judges are undermining election law causing the lack of confidence because leftists can’t accept losing.
    Leftists believe receiving more votes in a election is their birthright.
    The only birth they approve.
