DeSantis Issues 9-Point Plan For Election Integrity…

NEWS JUNKIES -- CHECK OUT OUR HOMEPAGE


 

On Friday, in a blunt assessment of the situation, Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis issued an election integrity proposal that would ensure fair voting in his state.

  1. Counties would be prohibited from receiving grants from private third-party organizations for “get out the vote” initiatives.
  2. Ballot boxes would be examined for their trustworthiness
  3. Ballot harvesting would be checked so that no one could have a ballot other then their own or their immediate family
  4. Vote-by-mail ballots could not be sent en masse; only voters asking for a ballot would receive one
  5. Vote-by-mail requests must be made each election year
  6. Vote by mail ballot signatures must match the most recent signature on file
  7. Political parties and candidates must be permitted to observe the signature matching process.
  8. Supervisors of Elections must report how many ballots have been requested, how many have been received, how many are left to be counted, and must post over-vote ballots to be considered by the canvassing board on their website before the canvassing board meets.
  9. Precincts must have real-time reporting of voter turnout data

 

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, a lot of states used that as a pretext to be able to do hastily new forms of voting. We didn’t do that in Florida. We had a system; we had confidence in the system; we knew it was safe, and we did it. We were not going to be sending out unsolicited mass mail ballots because, as we’ve seen, there’s problems with that. And when people tried to sue us, we told them, “Pound sand. We’re not going to change what we’re doing.”

 

So the result of 2020 from an administrative perspective was that Florida had the most transparent and efficient election anywhere in the country. Other states took days, weeks, and even months to count their votes, and yet Florida, by midnight on Election Night, we had 99% reporting and 11 million votes counted, tabulated, and put out to the public. It can be done, and don’t let anybody tell you it can’t be done.

 

So I think it’s important to point that out, and I think Floridians of all stripes can rest assured that in this state your vote counts. Your vote matters; your vote will be counted. It’s gonna be transparent; it’s gonna be above board. It’s gonna be a confidence-inspiring process. And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Don’t let anyone point to any other state and try to act like that is how Florida conducts elections because that is not true. That may have been true 20 years ago; that is not true now.

 

So we have led on this issue from the very beginning; the results speak for themselves, but we also can’t rest on our laurels. We need to make sure that we continue to stay ahead of the curve. We need to make sure that our citizens have confidence in the elections, that they have the ability to vote. We want, obviously, everyone to vote, but we don’t want anyone to cheat, and we want to make sure that we strike that appropriate balance.

 

“My view is we should have no ballot harvesting at all in the state of Florida. When you think about it, if you go in to vote on Election Day, they’ll be 150 feet, no one will even talk to you when you’re going; it’s like a sacred thing. You’re in a poll; you do all the thing; you put it in; you see the process. How could you say that this is how you do it in person and then somehow someone can just harvest hundreds of votes and dump it in some dropbox?”

 

He noted, “We’re not a big ballot harvesting state as it is, but any type of loopholes or any type of room where that could be abused we want to make sure we address it,” before continuing with his explanation of other steps he would take.

How about getting rid of MASKS

Gregg Gessler

1- ALL Paper Ballots, no voting machines or software. Ballots should be hand counted.
2- State issued ID Required for ALL voters &
3- Signature verification by humans, not machines!
4- VOTE IN PERSON UNLESS ABSENTEE BALLOT IS REQUESTED FAR IN ADVANCE IF ANY ELECTION.
All of these absentee ballots should be numbered & watermarked, along with other security measures.

That’s why we love Governor Desantis. He has always been true to his word. He has kept Florida open through all the BS.
Now he just needs to get these Democrats down in the South Florida counties to follow his executive orders & remove their mask mandates, open the schools, & let everyone go back to work.!

How about a 2-point plan: Voting in person only w/photo ID, NO MAIL INS. Two, absentee ballots strictly regulated, sent only by request w/copy of photo ID and check the signature upon receipt.

How about the obvious? Each ballot should be numbered

Along with signature verification, a legal ID should be required. Governor DeSantis doing a great job.

Per the Heritage Foundation:

States should:
Stop allowing same day voter registration and
make automatic voter registration a thing of the past.

States should:
Clean up the voter rolls.
Verify citizenship.
Require voter ID.
Limit mail in ballots.
Ban vote harvesting (aka vote trafficking).

Election integrity is vital for ensuring free and fair elections. We all know the 2020 presidential election was stolen by the Democrats and we must never let it happen again. President Trump won in a landslide but Democrats, Big Tech and the mainstream media conspired together and the voter fraud was either downplayed or outright ignored. Because of it the American people were essentially kept in the dark as to what really happened. 50+ judges refused to hear the case, including the US Supreme Court. Chief Justice John Roberts was terrified BLM & Antifa would riot nationwide if the Supremes intervened. So much for the American people’s last line of defense to right a wrong when all else fails, right? Chief Justice Roberts should be impeached. Ron DeSantis is a Governor among Governors. Florida is thriving while Blue states continue in lockdown mode while hundreds of thousands of businesses have been destroyed in the process. If Trump runs again in 2024 he should keep Governor DeSantis at the top of his list for the number two spot.

Trump can find another running mate! We need to keep Ron Desantis here in Florida. At this point in time, I don’t trust anyone else to run our state.

signatures should be matched by signature recognition software

no software or firmware is uncorruptable, i.e. Dominion/Smartmatic anyone? There has to be accountability – a human must bear the responsibility, therefore humans must perform the signature recognition so they will bear the consequences of their failure.

Love DeSantis, but compromised voting machines spell the end of everything. Fixing the mail in/paper area is good, esp if we go all paper (my preference if his policies enacted). But what about addressing.the hackable machines?

No “Mail in Ballots”!!! this isn’t a 3rd world hell hole. Should have to pay 5 bucks if you go for early absentee ballot. Also Everyone has a drivers license so you should need a photo ID to vote. If you don’t have one , the city hall can provide a Voter ID for FREE.

DeSantis will get my vote every time. These measures insure election integrity for BOTH parties but I’m sure the left will scream..

At the end of any election the local voting authority must be prepared for a recount so that a review and test of the ballot could be completed without protest or an act of the court. Voting officials at Ballot locations must be staffed with members of both parties approved by the local party officials. Ballots must be secured by the State authority for a period of 10 years.

The Dems in FL enabled the electoral fiasco of 2000. FL Republicans fixed it. Dominion, Smartmatic, etc. etc. couldn’t dent FL in 2020. Others need to listen! Especially states with R legislatures. They MUST strike back against the disgusting lawlessness witnessed last year, leading up to the debacle in November.

Ballot boxes should be ATMs where an ID is inserted & authenticated (including citizenship authentication) then the ballot inserted while recorded by video camera….or there should be no ballot boxes at all.

Each ballot must have a unique bar code, an audit of ballots must be done to ensure that photo copies of ballots are not fed through scanning machines.

The reason SS allows that is they get the free money to bolster the SS holdings. The illegals never get SS, which is ok with me. Their welfare makes up for that.

As a programmer, I was once tasked with writing code to pay out bonuses. My customer’s company had purchased a company in Southern CA. The purchased company, though, was actively negotiating with their union as the sale was underway. My customer agreed to enact whatever final agreement was reached. I had to write code to calculate bonuses for people, based on a few measurements, like date of hire, etc.

I reported a big problem to my customer: “The data file you provided is obviously defective,” said I, “There are dozens of examples of the same name with >1 SSN, as well as dozens of instances of an SSN listed with >1 name!” The guy replied with a laugh, and said, “No, the file’s okay. We’re talking about Southern California here…” He left me, a naive person living in the North East, a few seconds to figure it out, but I didn’t. So, he explained to me how SSN’s are handed around to and among illegals.

I had to do the best I could to pare the list down to a unique combination of names and SSN’s. I couldn’t resolve them all, so I passed it back to him to finish.

Get rid of the damn ballot boxes and make ballot harvesting a felony.
Oh and how about prosecuting the people we KNOW and have on film engaging in voter fraud?
I’m so sick of Repube pu55ies.

It will only matter in state elections. As long as the fraud stands with the federal elections, it won’t matter… Which eventually will lead to civil war, or slow death at the hands of the lunatic left.

All fine, but right now the Commander in Cheat has opened the Southern Border to rush in new voters by 2022. Maybe Florida can get a handle on it, but dem controlled states wont even attempt a fair election process.

I already wrote Governor DeSantis, and not being a Floridian pointed out the weaknesses in his proposal. Voter ID, absentee for the infirm and those serving outside Florida, no mail in balloting, close the window of voting to one week or less, observers need to be at the table as part of counting process not 6 or 10 feet away, no ballot boxes, no USPS collection of ballots, NO machines involved ever, hand counting only, chain of custody of ballot counts, and ballots that cannot be copied.

It is of no matter how Florida handles elections… We are only one State out of 50.

Presidents are elected by voters in all 50 states, and if other states continue to have fraudulent elections, that will affect Floridians…

I think DeSantis is a fine Governor, but if election problems aren’t fixed in all states, what Florida does will be of no consequence.

GREAT START FOR DESANTIS AND FLORIDA.
LEAD BY EXAMPLE. SET UP THE CONVERSATION, GET OTHER RED STATES INVOLVED.
THE BLUE STATES WILL LOOK SO BAD IF WE GET THE RED CONSERVATIVE AND INTELLECTUALLY HONEST STATES TO SHOW THE WAY.

WAITING FOR ALL FIFTY TO DO SOMETHING IS RIDICULOUS.

In addition to D.C. and Puerto Rico statehood…
Democrats in Congress have legislation HR 1 and SB 1 that would Federalize voter registration and elections, cementing Democrats grip on Democrat one party rule. Republicans better have a plan to block these initiatives from passing.

Since when do Democrats care about the Constitution? America First Republicans in Congress need to speak out against these disastrous policies. D.C. and Puerto Rico statehood and HR 1 and SR 1 are Democrat power grabs pure and simple.

There are easy, inexpensive solutions to voter fraud but no desire to actually fix it. Deep state like things the way they are. I’ve said it before that if you aren’t cheating Democrats don’t think you want to win badly enough but I guess I’m cynical 🤨
