that was from a primary.
As I understand it, that particular matter arose because it was in one of the states where primary balloting is staffed on a per party basis; they can’t legally take Republican primary ballots unless they have a Republican election judge at the polling place.

Texas, specifically.

So, it was someone who most likely knew exactly what the situation was but intentionally recorded an out of context, deceptive video for the sake of misrepresenting election integrity and riling up the republican base? You'd think with all the "obvious and indisputable" evidence floating around, people mightn't need to manufacture it.

Ah, ok.

Still, it seems like there need to be ways to drop off primary ballots, even with staffing issues related to party affiliation.

I get the guy in the video cannot legally take it, however someone should have had a way to set aside GOP primary ballots for when a GOP person showed back up to handle it.

Though this does help show why the GOP needs to stop trying to force everyone to vote in person, instead of via mail in or drop off-box ballots; it's a pride issue and time consuming in ways it does not need to be, as seen in AZ, and it means the voters are on a time crunch that they aren't on with mail in and drop box voting.

The Cali GOP realized this, which is part of why the GOP picked up a lot of seats there this last election.

Ballot harvesting is perfectly legal in some states, and the national GOP needs to learn from the Cali GOP's example of putting the drop boxes in churches and other places that aren't likely to see as many leftists, if law allows.

They cheated, almost certainly

Now let's see if they get busted for it. Big doubt.
I not sure how much...'cheating' happened, but I do know a lot of fuckery around polling places caused the GOP vote to be suppressed because the GOP does in-person more than mail-in.

So Kari Lake may yet be governor of AZ, depending on what that AG finds.

Good speech, and definitely good points; trying to convince GOP voters to only vote in-person, and not use early voting or mail-in, has hurt the GOP significantly.

Early voting and mail-in voting is not going away, the GOP best start understanding how to use it to their advantage.

As this message starts to spread, I have to wonder how long it'll be before democrats are against mail in and early voting.

I support in person, day of, paper ballot voting, with ID. However, it just makes sense that if the left is doing it to increase voter turnouts, the right needs to play the same game.

Doubtful considering all of the major networks projected Hobbs as the winner

Luckily the media does not decide the winners of elections, state authorities do.

And said state authorities are not willing to certifiy the election because of all the fuckery that was found to have gone on.

Right now NO ONE has won the election, so neither Hobbs or Lake can truly claim victory right now.

Not just to cheat, but legitly to give people more time to do it in person, or do it via mail.

The idea of having to physically go vote at a polling place, and only on election day, as the only acceptable method of voting is the GOP shooting itself in the foot.

I can see an argument about mail-in being iffy in some places, but early voting, in case people are going to be too busy on election day itself, is absolutely a legit methodology.

The GOP can adapt and increase it's voter turn out, or it can continue to act like the only acceptable way to vote is in-person, on election day, regardless of the practical realities of early and mail-in voting.

Personally I feel as if it should be banned, and not only that but we need Voter I.D., not just a drivers license, but an actual I.D. card. Name, Face, SSN, VID#, and of course affiliation, between Democrat, Republican or Unaffiliated.
