Free and fair elections are the bedrock of our constitutional republic. Elected officials and the mainstream news tell us that the November 3, 2020, election was the “most secure” in our nation’s history. But more information is coming out every day that contradicts what the “experts” are trying to convince us what is true. Let’s review what took place in 2020.
Conveniently, the COVID-19 pandemic allowed for the use of presumed emergency powers at all levels of government. As a result, The United States experienced a plethora of unsecure election practices: unrestricted mail-in balloting; privately- funded unmonitored drop-boxes; states and counties stopping their vote counting; results reporting that took days, weeks and even months; and elections being “called,” when only 10% of a state’s vote had been reported. If you dared to question the results you were immediately deemed an “election denier, Trumper, deplorable, conspiracy theorist or traitor” by both parties.
Despite the character assassination, the voters I have met still express concern that the election system was not secure and questioned if their vote counted. I agree with the voter concerns and will explain why. I am the Ottawa County Captain for Election Integrity Force, a non-profit organization formed by citizens concerned with attempts to subvert the integrity of our elections. From November 2021 – April 2022, a team of 20 people canvassed 2,221 voters in Ottawa County. Our team investigated the county Qualified Voter File (QVF) and the machines involved in the voting processes. We educated ourselves on Michigan election law, collaborated with local election integrity leaders including Patrick Colbeck and developed best practices with the 30 county teams at EIF. The data gathered through canvassing and research is quite compelling.
How Accurate Is Michigan’s Qualified Voter File?
In September 2020, the Secretary of State office sent 700,000 voter registrations to Michigan citizens who have a Michigan driver’s license or state ID and are eligible but not registered to vote in Michigan. The citizens were automatically registered to vote unless they opted out on the registration form. An October 2020 Judicial Watch announced that 353 U.S. counties had 1.8 million more registered voters than eligible voting-age citizens Michigan has registered voters at 105% and Ottawa County is 103%. In August 2022, The U.S. Western District Court of Michigan denied a plea by Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D) that sought to halt a lawsuit alleging she kept nearly 26,000 dead registrants on the state’s voter rolls.
Is our Election System and Process Secure?
Ottawa County uses Hart InterCivic equipment and Verity Voting Systems. The county has 23 drop boxes and received $28, 679 COVID-19 Response Grant from Mark Zuckerberg’s Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL). The documentaries 2000 Mules and Selection Code present evidence that Michigan was very vulnerable to systemic and widespread election fraud in the 2020 election.
Ottawa County Canvass Results from November 3, 2020
In the 1,235 voters that we were able to talk to, we found a staggering 23% anomaly rate including changed votes, phantom votes, and phantom voters. 51 were deceased, 45 changed method of voting, 38 voted from an address at which they did not live, and 144 moved from the registered address. We secured 278 legal affidavits from your fellow neighbors.
Based on the above evidence and Election Integrity Force’s Critical Analysis of the November 2020 Michigan Election Report, I am convinced that our electing systems in Ottawa County, in Michigan and the United States of America are desperate need of repair.
What Will I Do?
As County Commissioner, I will vote not to fund voting machines, mail-in balloting or drop boxes. I will advocate for paper balloting and same day hand counts until a secure solution is implemented. I will advocate for random auditing from by a 3rd party auditor who reports results directly to the County Sheriff and hold the Sheriff responsible for applying the law.
