I’ve asked about a “receipt” for my vote before. I was told that once the machine accepts your ballot, it proves that ur vote was tabulated. I then asked if I could get a “receipt” showing that my vote was tabulated correctly for the persons that I VOTED FOR!

I was told, “Oh no, there’s no way that we can give you that” and I said “Maybe, elections ppl should know that we should be getting one!!!!!”

In this day and age, it should be a no-brainer and very easy to accomplish! Why the companies that are contracted to “tabulate” our ballots don’t already have this option tells volumes about these companies and the “Hobbit Hobbs-type” “election officials” who use them and refuse to use anyone else!!!!

Our voting system is completely out of control and not reliable. Gosh knows who has been coming through our open borders to trash the system even more. Imagine Fetterman tasked with voting on a fix!

The day will come when people will finally realize their vote no longer counts. The people controlling the system have pre-selected who’ll win regardless of the count, the media and paid off courts are all in concert with this and any whistleblower will be ignored.

Once again our county had massive problems. About ONE THIRD of our voting districts had NO SPECIAL PAPER in the voting machines in primarily RED districts. The problem was so bad that a judge extended the voting hours. But because there was still NO MACHINE PAPER (or emergency or provisional ballots, they ran out in the first two or three hours) what was the point of extending the hours? In the end we voted on COPIES of provisional ballots, which were later transposed onto “official” ballots. SO THE VOTES WERE NOT SECURE, AND SOMEONE VOTED FOR US. Every election it’s another problem, parties incorrect on the primary ballots, wrong machines (thus candidates) in the voting location, poll workers fail to show up, machines don’t work, batteries not charged, electronic software expired, incorrect date and times in the machines, improper mail in ballot instructions, and other problems.

I believe reporting election results (or even trends) should not be allowed on radio or TV until the polls have closed in every state and the counting is complete in every state. And I don’t know how to do what I’m about to suggest, but we need to devise a way to keep vote counters strictly honest, because as old Joe Stalin said: “those who vote decide nothing—THOSE WHO COUNT THE VOTES DECIDE EVERYTHING.”

Way to rig voting.

Suppose, after hours, operatives posing as janitors, unobserved, go to the boxes of signature verified ballots that have not yet been counted, and substitute Democrat votes for Republican votes, ballot for ballot, so no count and no recount will find any disparity. The more days of early voting, the more nights Democrat ballots can be substituted for Republican ballots. That’s why Democrats are so insistent on early voting. Given more nights to rig votes, vote stealing approaches a 100% success rate. Do I know this for sure. No, it is conjecture based on fact patterns.

In person, same day voting prevents that kind of vote stealing because the entire process from signature verification to insertion of the ballot into the tabulating machine is done under continuous, line-of sight, voter observation and bipartisan observation by poll watchers.

Honest officials would welcome audits to prove what a fine job they have done. Crooked officials will launch ad hominen attacks against the voters who want to ensure the integrity of the vote by an audit with obnoxious claims of “vote deniers”, a newly invented pseudo-crime by the pathetic leftists who think their asinine distortions of the English language will trick and intimidate their adversaries.

Wherever money is involved, good business practice calls for safeguards like double entry bookkeeping and regular audits. Unlike early days, voting today involves a lot of money because of the great differences between taxation policies, personal and corporate welfare programs, and awards to partisan special interests between the parties. Legislatures ought to require regular and extensive audits of all elections according to procedures devised by forensic accountants.

Now that i’m disabled, i see the need for some sort of extended voting period. However, the problem is SECURITY: How to make sure ballots aren’t thrown away or entered multiple times? Even ballots at the polls are often not secure: in 2020, conservative poll watchdogs were locked out of polling areas.

The socialists are intent on winning by any means possible; in AZ they put voting machines in need of repair in conservative areas. i saw this myself!

Voter Photo IDs, return to hardship absentee ballots, no drop boxes nor “harvesting”, a week or so early voting, tabulate early votes, computer database of IDs

We need secure elections – paper ballots, hand counts, not machines that break down and can be hacked, results same day, no early voting, absentee ballots only in certain circumstances. We seem to have enough money to throw at every other problem we certainly can find the funds to do this efficiently

Drop boxes should be like ATMs. Put your ID in, put your ballot in. Verifies signature on ballot to ID, takes picture of person and prints on ballot envelope, print date and time submitted. If the ID cant be verified it marks the ballot invalid, swallows the ID and sends a picture of person to local LEOs.

If Nothing Else, I like the Receipt option.
A Receipt is Given with the even the least amount of Money Spent on a Transaction.
A Receipt should absolutely be Given For Voting!

Fair voting practices should be everyone’s concern. Without them, we have NO SAY in our government. I think that is called Communism.

The items above plus the following items would make it more difficult to cheat and by the way all votes should be counted on Election Day before midnight not days or weeks afterward that’s insane! What’s really needed more than anything is to get rid of the Dominion vote cheating/changing machines or anything like them that have the ability to be hacked into and/or perform any other task than simply counting the ballots for candidates where the voter has checked the ballot!! Then outlaw ballot harvesting, drop boxes, mail-in or out ballots, and those caught performing or attempting using these means should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law!

You forgot about IDs. Yesterday’s news said 1000 illigal immigrants crossed our Southern border. I am sure the Biden Campaign has relocated them to those districts that do not vote “D”.

In my opinion, everyone votes on Election Day. NO ballots are tabulated after that day. ID required in ALL States. NO early voting, unless your job takes you out of your voting area and you need documentation to prove; etc military. Hand counting, no computer votes that people can hack to change. Computer has NOT made counting quicker or safe.

  • 1 day of in person voting only.
  • Paper ballots only (mail in for military and foreign diplomats stationed out of state/country).
  • Photo ID (I’m even fine with every voter having their picture taken holding the photo ID in front of them.)
  • I’m good with making it a Federal Holiday.
  • Voter should be able to leave the polling place with a “ncr” copy of their ballot. There should be matching serial numbers.
  • Ballots should be printed on paper like our money is.

Counting the votes is likely the bigger problem. There are many ways to make this secure as well.

One day voting – no more, no less. If you can’t make time in your day that’s your problem. Polls in most states are open for 12 hours at least. I believe there is already a law that employers must allow time off for employees to vote (and no they don’t have to be paid). And perhaps we need to do like some middle eastern countries do and dip a finger in dye to show you voted which would cut down on repeat democrat voters.

Sleepy Joe did not get 81 million legitimate votes. This is more than any other president in history. There are not that many socialists in America. Most prefer freedom and the responsibility that comes with it.

Unfortunately, Democrats will have the upper hand until the country fails. As long as there is no responsibility for actions taken (or actions avoided), why vote for someone that will require me to work and not be fed by the government feed bag?

America is going socialist-communist-Marxist. Unfortunately there has been cheating and other problems especially in the long corrupted “swing states”. But I think there are finally enough stupid people, to actually vote for such a freedom crushing Constitutionally destructive form of government.

These upsetting results are what happens when we have a nearly 50/50 divided country. If there were a significant majority either way that is numerically high enough, the “majority” will win. If you’ll notice in almost all of these states where Republicans lost, it was very close. In fact in many like Arizona, only some 500 votes separate the AG race. The senate seat in Georgia was decided in a runoff by less than 2% difference. Hardly a runaway for Warnock, but a Democrat win nonetheless.

Drop boxes must go. Also ballot harvesting. And with regard to voter ID, is the TSA, Dept of Motor Vehicles, the local library all racist because you have to show ID????? duh. Voter ID is an absolute must. This nonsense that lower income people and those in the poor neighborhoods don’t have an ID is ridiculous. Many of our representatives are representing themselves and not us. Self serving dogs

Some-how we used to vote on one day. We managed. We used to have to provide ID. I don’t know what the deal is about that, as everyone has ID to conduct their everyday life. We know how many ballots to produce because we have registration deadline dates. I’ve said for many years, Election Day needs to be a national holiday. For those that can’t show up on election day, we have absentee ballots (which you had to show ID to get). No ballot should be accepted after the polls close. All active-duty military personnel votes should be counted first (they have pledged their lives to protect this nation).

We have a billionaire problem in our Republic, dark money and multi million dollar donations should be illegal. Our elections shouldn’t be bought. There must be a cap put on donations, and a stiff penalty for breaking the law.

Maybe some of the problems we have with voting is that people don’t fully read and understand who/what they are voting for…Just like with this poll. People are asking why we can’t have all of the above choices. Well, if you read and understood the poll, you would know that you could :click on all that apply”

Always use BLUE BALLPOINT pen, not black or a gel pen. Any legal documents were always signed in blue, because when copies were made, it showed up black. If you use blue ballpoint there should be no mistake on what you marked on the ballot.

If there are questions regarding marks on the ballot, contact the voter to get clarification. Much better than letting someone else decide your vote OR the ballot is invalid. Put the responsibility on the voter to make sure all is correct on the ballot before casting the vote in the machine.

There should be no early voting, no absentee voting except for active duty military, and everyone must be registered 30 days prior to voting and show a valid photo ID.

I have done Mail-in ballot for several years now, ever since it became extremely difficult for me to get to the polls due to my disability. I am glad to be able to vote this way but I think that people have way too much time to get these back to the counting offices. Three things should be changed to make mail-in more efficient; 1) only allow those people with a verifiable disability, or can prove they are unable to get to a voting location to be issued a mail-in ballot, 2) only allow the maximum of two weeks to have the ballots sent back in, and 3) increase the amount of locations to vote in person so there would be places close to major employment centers. By allowing anyone to have a mail-in ballot and almost a month to get them back in it makes people lazy. If you do away with mail-in entirely, you would be denying the ability to vote to those who cannot walk, or do not have transportation available and that would not work. As to the count itself, when I had to take the SAT’s for school, we were told that we could only use a #2 pencil. If we went to a classroom to take it, the pencils were there so there was chance to get the wrong thing to use. Today’s machines should be able to handle any dark ink or pencil as long as it made a dark gray to black mark.
If these things were done before the next primary, I think you would find things going quite a bit faster.

If I could I would have chosen all of the choices. A national holiday to vote and only hand ballot count. No machines. Drop boxes, machines, early voting make it too easy to cheat.

Must show ID and then vote. One day to vote (Election Day). The democrats cheat that’s why they don’t like this.

Five days of early voting would be great. No national holiday, just another excuse for people to take a three or four day weekend. Retailers and restaurants would still be open as would others. The country only asks you to voluntarily do one thing – VOTE! A five day early voting period would allow voters to adjust schedules and ease the burden on poll workers.

Make Election Day a holiday!! Everyone can vote! No machines, no mailings, only those that can’t make it to vote use absentee voting. No rank choice cheating voting!! Must show ID, must be a legal voter!
