Change

The 2020 election underscored the need for better scrutiny of elections. AMAC recently launched an initiative asking members to become poll watchers/election workers for the upcoming 2022 elections. Do you intend to get involved OR are you interested in participating in this initiative in 2022?

I’m having a hard time answering this the last election was so sickening I went into a depression over it I did work the polls for the California governor recall there was definitely cheating people who went to vote were told that they had already voted poll workers themselves were shocked and felt helpless nothing is being done about this nightmare absolutely nothing is being done about the 2020 presidential election and it is sickening to the core of our country

Offering our services to contribute to the honesty and integrity of our party is usually hindered by miserable democrats that have a hold on the voting polls and will do anything in their power to foil anything we can do. That’s up to and including physically removing conservatives from their honest offers to serve our party. Truth is that these unamerican dirtbags are willing to believe lies and deceptions coming from the failure of a jackass like the one they put in office.

the problem is that we know what happened but no one does anything about it. i think republicans are afraid and have no balls to stand up against the demo-craps. i havent seen anyone arrested or prosecuted nor will it happen until republicans reps grow a set of balls. we need to get a term limits bill and get the useless, old, and feebleminded ones out the door. including biden warren pelosi to name a few.get rid of the anti american ones like the squad. for gods sake close the borders. DO SOMETHING FOR THE REAL AMERICANS ! WAKE UP B4 ITS TOO LATE !

Efforts should be laser focused on 1. swing states. 2. states that have virtually unregulated mail in ballots

I see that many want to take an active role in our election process, but the poll shows that many need help in finding out how to do it. Thanks for the link I found it very helpful.

Until Voter IDs are mandatory nation-wide, electronic voting machines are banned nation-wide, and Elections are returned to a 1 day event, then there will be no reason to expect our elections to be free from fraud.

A third “;No’ response should have been provided, to wit: “My age and health preclude me from actively participating; however, I am aware of issues and have voted in every state and Federal election for over sixty years.” I felt left out of this questionnaire.

Your comments need to be printed in a bolder font. Most, if not all, of your members need all the help available in reading material such as this.

Iam a ballot processor for kitsap county in washington. I would have loved to,I’m there already, so I couldn’t. Our election office is open for everyone to come watch closely! We have a great set up.

I want to sign up to be a poll working in LA County, but they require proof of vaccination–which I don’t have. Is that legal?

I plan to poll watch like I have done in the last two elections. Any help will help keep the voting more pure and true.

My husband and I live in St. Jacob, IL. We filled out Documents to work in the election. IL is deep blue with the Gov. we have and a Rino Senator. We have not heard back after they collected our test we took. My husband worked in the elections in KY. For 17 years. We shall see if they come back to us. I have been very vocal on the surveys they send me.

I tried to sign up to be a poll watcher in my county. They require a 16-hour day, once you get there at 5 AM you work 16 hours and cannot leave. I understand that is for security and all that. I am 71, need a cane to walk, suffer severe chronic pain and I want to do it so much. I can’t tell you how it pains me to admit I can’t do a 16-hour day. I worked doubles welding in refineries, mines and oil field shops when I was young and strong, now I can’t do a 16-hour day watching the Polls.

My wife and I were poll workers for about 10 years and we stopped because of the long hours. It was fun and you meet a lot of really nice people, but we had to be there from 5:30 am to 8:30 pm or until everything is recorded and put away. It is not hard work and you learn a lot. Mostly sitting, so the cane should not be a problem. If you sign up to “work” at the polls, you can monitor what is going on better than a poll watcher and you can sit most of the time. We stopped a couple of years ago, when I was about 78. After 16 hours, you become family. And you would be surprised that the Ds and Rs have a LOT in common.

I was asked to run for County Commissioner at 69 years old. I filed and no one filed against me. I am now filed to run for my second term. The Chairman of our board died in the second year of hi 4 year term and we had to beg to get 3 applicants for his position. One was a pot head, one was a retired serviceman with no idea of the limited scope of factors we can address and the third, the one selected, is a retired four term Commissioner.
If we can’t get quality people to apply for a vacancy, how do you expect to get quality people to run for office?

Don’t automatically disqualify someone who smokes or has smoked pot. Pot is not heroin, fentanyl, meth or OxyContin. Cannabis has been used on this planet as a natural medicine for at least 5,000 years. Traditional Chinese has documented use of cannabis going back 5,000 years. It is still used in traditional medicine in China but those medicines are not exported here. Almost every country warm enough to grow cannabis has a history of using it in medicines. It was used a lot in Patent Medicines in this country before it was used as a political tool by our government to use against those they wished to imprison. Now it is medicine again and your “pot head” perhaps uses it for medical reasons. But, sure, it is sooooo much better to have an alcoholic or a person on psych meds on your board.

It’s laudable that people are stepping up to oversee the elections in the future and I’m grateful
for you, but I will continue to support exposing and holding accountable the criminal actions of the politicians and county officials that kept honest poll workers from doing their jobs in 2020. Maybe together we can get our country back before we loose it altogether.

Stalin had it about right. Uncle Joe wasn’t that concerned who voted. He was very concerned who COUNTED the votes. The idea applies to the USSR and to the USA>
