Wisconsin Lawmakers are moving to stop election workers across the state from fixing mistakes on absentee ballots.
The Assembly’s Committee on Campaigns and Elections on Wednesday advanced a plan, Assembly Bill 198, that would clarify that only voters or their witnesses can correct a mistake on an absentee ballot.
“Because [absentee voting] is a privilege, there’s got to be some responsibility that the voter has to exercise that privilege,” said Rep. Donna Rozar (R-Marshfield). “And I think that responsibility is to do it right and legally.”
Republican lawmakers say absentee ballot curing, the technical term for fixing mistakes on ballots, is one of the areas of concern from the November 2020 election.
Election workers cured many more ballots last fall than ever before. The Wisconsin Elections Commission confirmed this in its postelection report.
“The statewide absentee ballot rejection rate was exceptionally low in November — 0.2% statewide compared to 1.8% in April 2020,” the commission wrote in January.
The new proposal spells out that election clerks must contact the voter if they made a mistake, or the witness if they made a mistake in filling out their portion of the absentee ballot. Only the voter or the witness can correct those mistakes.
Democrats on the Elections Committee say the change will mean some legally cast ballots won’t be counted.
“I don’t care if absentee voting is a privilege,” said Rep. Lisa Subek (D-Madison). “That doesn’t mean you should have to pass a test, or make sure that you dot every I and cross every T. If someone makes an innocent, honest mistake, it is appalling that we’re not going to then let their ballot count.”
Elections Committee chief Rep. Janel Brandtjen (R-Menomonee Falls) said the tightening of the rules for who can fix mistakes on absentee ballots does not infringe on anyone’s right to vote.
“Election Day is a right, and early voting is still a privilege,” Brandtjen said.
The proposal now heads for a vote in the full Assembly, but also a likely veto from Gov. Tony Evers. The governor has said for months he will not sign any new laws that “make it tougher” for people to vote.
Darrell Issa Just Made His First Official Move Against Big Tech For Interfering in The 2020 Election
Darrell Issa is on a mission.
He finally got the memo that Republican voters are pissed off about the 2020 election and the interference from Big Tech, and is actually taking steps right now, to hold them accountable.
He just made a bold move that put Big Tech on notice.
The Free Beacon reported that Rep. Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) asked Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal on Thursday to preserve all internal records related to the companies’ suppression of news coverage of Hunter Biden’s laptop in 2020, according to copies of the congressional preservation letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
The congressman is asking Zuckerberg, Agrawal, Facebook communications director Andy Stone, and former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to “Immediately initiate document preservation for all materials relating to questions, inquiry, conversation, strategy, and response to the media reporting of the Hunter Biden laptop and/or its contents that first appeared in the New York Post on October 14, 2020,” and to notify employees, consultants, and subcontractors who might have access to relevant materials.
Issa said his office is investigating efforts by social media outlets and Democratic operatives to stifle the New York Post bombshell story about Hunter Biden’s corrupt foreign business dealings, which was based on emails found on Hunter’s abandoned laptop.
“This is the scandal that Big Tech and the Democrat industrial complex wish would go away,” Issa told the Free Beacon. “They know what they did, and of course they think they’ve gotten away with it. That’s why it’s critical that we not squander the opportunity for accountability.”
Issa also sent preservation requests to top Biden 2020 campaign aides—including now-White House press secretary Jen Psaki and chief of staff Ron Klain—as well as a group of Biden-supporting former U.S. intelligence officials who claimed the laptop appeared to be part of a “Russian information operation.”
The preservation requests don’t have the legal power of a congressional subpoena, but companies could take a political risk if they refuse to comply—particularly if Republicans gain the House majority next year, giving them control of investigative committees and subpoena authority.
Although there was no evidence in 2020 that the Post’s reporting was inaccurate—and even Hunter Biden didn’t deny that the emails were real—Democrats decried the story as Russian “misinformation,” and Facebook and Twitter took unprecedented steps to prevent users from viewing or sharing it weeks before the election.
This looks to be step one of what Republicans have planned for Big Tech when they take over Congress.
But we can’t allow this to become a “Trey Gowdy” dog and pony show, all talk and no action… we must make sure that they actually hold Big Tech accountable and regulate them.
Texas County Elections Commissioner Resigns After 10,000 Uncounted Ballots Discovered
The elections commissioner in Harris County, Texas, has announced that she will be resigning following significant problems with last week’s primary, including the discovery of 10,000 uncounted ballots, a lack of poll workers, and issues with the voting machines. This was the first statewide election in Texas since the implementation of new, stricter voting laws.
At a meeting of county commissioners on Tuesday, Harris County Elections Administrator Isabel Longoria took responsibility for the disastrous election, and rightfully so. “Ultimately, the buck stops with me. I didn’t meet my own standards,” admitted Longoria.
She also announced that she will be resigning on July 1, which will allow time for a proper replacement to be appointed.
“I think this date ensures that there is a presiding officer during the May and June elections and allows the election commission the time they need to find a replacement,” said Longoria. “I remain committed to the office and its mission and hope to aid in defeating harmful rhetoric to ensure successful elections in the future.”
Longoria’s resignation comes after both Republican and Democratic parties called for her removal after the 2022 primary which took place on March 1.
During the primary election, there were staffing problems and equipment issues that backed up the voting process. Additionally, and most shockingly, 10,000 uncounted votes were discovered days after the election, with 6,000 Democratic votes and 4,000 Republican votes. Officials from both parties signed a document acknowledging this difference in votes, and insisted “further investigation [is] needed.” Longoria also faced criticism for a slow count which took 30 hours to complete.
Current state Rep. Harold Dutton Jr. shared his surprise that so many missing ballots went unnoticed.”It seems to me that somebody should’ve known that 10,000 ballots were missing,” said Dutton. “If 10,000 ballots were missing and nobody knew that, God help us.”
In addition to Longoria’s resignation, she is also being sued by the state GOP for an alleged breach of contract. The Harris County Republican Party is also suing the county for several alleged violations of the Texas election code.
