About poll watching

Posted in Uncategorized on September 27, 2010 by johnmwilliams

I thought I’d do another post to answer the questions that have been coming in.  There are two kinds of poll watchers–those who sit inside and monitor the actual voting and those who stand outside the no-campaign zone to answer questions for voters.  Keep in mind that I’m in Texas, and I haven’t researched any other state laws.  But here, those who sit in the polling place and monitor the vote must be a resident of the county they’re monitoring.  You must apply to the county to be approved and then be ready to stay all day the day of voting.  It’s when the polls close that things are most vulnerable to cheating.  So be sure to be in and around the counting room.  Eyes and ears are key.  As you see in the video, the cheaters have apparently become so comfortable and brazen that they don’t worry about observers watching them vote for others.  Check with your County Clerk to see how to apply and be sure and be there from open to close on November 4.  Those who stand outside the polling place are not required to reside in the county where they work, nor are they required to apply with the county.  You may hand out information, inform voters, and give them sample ballots (you may need to get these from the County Clerk–I’ll check on that tomorrow).

If you need help organizing a group to monitor elections, I’d suggest contacting True the Vote directly.  They did it with little more than an idea and 10 friends to begin with.  I think they’re going to be well-represented throughout Harris County after this publicity and their idea is gaining strength across the rest of the country:

And help for organizing and participating is here:

Thank all of you for your emails and responses.  Great things come from those determined to do what is right.  You have demonstrated that there is plenty of concern to right this ship of state.

As an aside, I have joined the Frisco, Texas, Tea Party.  I would suggest you look for a Tea Party organization in your city.  It’s not about Democrat or Republican–it’s about doing what’s right for the country and our kids and grandkids.

I don’t know if you have been keeping up with the Christian Adams story–he’s a former DOJ attorney in the Voting Rights Division and resigned over the Obama Administration’s refusal to prosecute the New Black Panthers Voting Rights case (still works for DOJ, but has been exiled to SC).  The problem runs much deeper–when the Obama Administration’s Christine Fernandez was appointed to DOJ, she, in effect, threw out enforcement of Section 8 of the Motor Voter law passed under Clinton.  That section requires that states certify to the DOJ their voting roles are “clean”–ie, checked for deaths, move-aways, and that registered voters meet legal requirements to participate in the elections.  Here’s the background by Christian Adams:

DOJ drops any enforcement of the provision that Republicans insisted on for compromise

I hope you’ve been keeping up with the “Houston Votes” issue.  First, the Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector, Leo Vasquez, announced widespread voter fraud in Harris County by an organizational offshoot of ACORN, Houston Votes, and schedules a press conference.  Days after the scheduled press conference, the Houston warehouse containing all the voting machines for Harris County burned to the ground.  Here’s a little background (short):

Houston Votes exposed-evidence destroyed

Now here is a video by a group formed in response to the widespread voter fraud they witnessed in Harris County last cycle:

True the Vote

Voter registration should be our focus now–but I think we should start recruiting people as poll watchers as well.  I truly believe that there is massive voter fraud going on–enough to steal close elections as Christine Gregoire did in WA in 2004 and Franken in MN in 2008 (remember the boxes of “found” ballots that kept appearing until they finally won by a couple of hundred votes?  King County was later fined $225k for refusing an FOIA request based on a study that at least hundreds of votes cast had been illegal.  The county election official in charge of that operation has now moved to Los Angeles).  Also, note how this seems to go hand-in-hand with the Dems admitted scheme to get far left ideologues voted into Secretary of State offices nationwide (Project SOS).  The writing is on the wall for anyone willing to read it.  The Dems are going to pull out the stops this next cycle.  There may be voter fraud on a scale heretofore unimaginable in a country like the United States.  It’s up to us to stop it.

There is nothing more sacred than our right to vote.  And that right is destroyed when those who don’t have the legal right to vote counter our legitimate votes.  As an American, it should make your blood boil.

Please forward this information to your local Tea Party affiliate or other group.  IMO, this kind of chicanery, a breach of trust by those who perpetrate it, should bring with it prosecution and incarceration.  But we can’t prosecute it without eyes and ears to report it.
