Skip to comments.Voting accountability is like cash flow reporting: You, the voter, are the investor of the republic. You deserve stringent accountability standards.

One of the trolls I encounter online repeats the mantra that if we are to allege electoral fraud, the burden of proof is on the accuser. No matter how strong the evidence, nor how much of it there is, the mantra remains the same. Prove it. Proof beyond reasonable doubt is the standard.
No. When it comes to electoral integrity, and accusations of fraud, that's backward. Those who count the votes must prove that the numbers they report are accurate. If they cannot, then the election results must be discarded as untrustworthy. Another, more reliable — utterly reliable — election must occur.
When I worked in an accounting department, one of our monthly products was the cash flow report. It told the investors how much money came in and how much went out. It would not have been acceptable to simply tell them, you lost ten thousand dollars from your bank account this month. The investors demanded proof. Where did the money go? Why did it go?
The owners demanded, and got, proof of the following: how much debt was collected? Why not more? How much revenue was received? Why not more? Where are the receipts? What are the cash management procedures? Were they followed? Why so much expense for office supplies? Can we do with less? Can we get a better price from another supplier? Anything that they asked, the accountants had to answer to the satisfaction of the investors, and the investors would pounce on any irregularity. People could be fired, or even charged with crimes. It was serious business indeed. It was cash.
Election officials have the same responsibility to the voting public.

The financial officer of a corporation cannot simply tell the investors, "We rely on computers, so if there is an error, blame it on I.T." Likewise, election officials should not be allowed to hide behind a wall of computers. Everything about those computers, inside and out, software and hardware, must be made available for public inspection. Those who manufacture the computers and write the programs must provide strict proof of their reliability, to the satisfaction of the voters. If not, the machines must be scrapped, and paper ballots used instead. There must be transparency at all times.
While I agree with the premise, remember that voters sometimes have a choice between a slug and a Democrat. For instance, McCarthy won handily in his district. Either vote for him or vote for the Democrat. No question though of voting for the Democrat, but not happy with having to vote for McCarthy.
Voter accountability is obsolete - its the number of ballots that count.
Voting in America has become like the dollar.
It’s value decreases every day, and regardless of how many are printed and cast, it’s no longer backed by a standard.
And just like the currency, there will never be an honest audit.
The dollar is on its way out, just as the Peoples voice.
One world order, one world currency and a one world religion, coming soon. It’s no longer a conspiracy, and an honest follower of Jesus Christ will recognize this.
But the elected official equivalent of SBF oversees the elections in AZ, CA, GA, MI, NY, and PA at the State level, as well as all urban areas.
Fine, get someone with actual power to make it happen.
I do day trading...after spending time as a tax analyst at Nike. Programs could be written that account properly for our votes and only include vetted voters. They just don’t want to. And at this point probably a lot of people would be justifiably worried about hacking.
On the other hand - the safest way seems to be the old fashioned way...present your ID and vote with a paper ballot.
What we have now is outright GRAND THEFT.
