Eliminating election fraud is neither difficult nor expensive, provided those developing the election system know what they’re doing.
Sadly, most election systems were developed by legislators, not auditors. Only paper ballots can provide the requisite audit trail required for full and complete assurance that election fraud has not been committed. All state legislators who refuse to support both voter ID and paper ballots are either ignorant or traitors. Either way, get rid of them, as they’re a huge danger to our Republic.
Our country desperately needs a NEFDAPP – National Election Fraud Detection and Prevention Program. This can not be staffed by government bureaucrats. Not only do they not have a clue as to properly secure an election, but they also pose the greatest threat to election security.
When you gather a team of auditors (experts at detecting fraud), computer scientists, computer/IT security specialists, and information managers, you wind up with a very capable and highly secure system.
Here’s what such a system looks like:
1. All ballots will be paper. It’s difficult to miscount paper ballots when they’re secured and counted under the watchful eyes of properly selected monitoring teams. It’s impossible to hack a paper ballot system that uses properly developed monitoring and auditing that has access to the original paper ballots. Even an electronic voting system requires a printed paper trail verified by each voter in order to detect and counter voting fraud. Bits and bytes are simply too easily hacked.
2. All ballots will be opened, tallied, and put in vaults by properly trained and supervised three-party teams, one Democrat, one Independent, and one Republican, supervised by a non-party-affiliated judge held in high esteem for his/her impartiality.
- 1,000 ballots require a sample size of 943.
- 10,000 ballots require a sample size of 6,247.
- 100,000 ballots require a sample size of 14,267.
- 1,000,000 ballots require a sample size of 16,369.
- 10,000,000 ballots require a sample size of 16,613.
- 100,000,000 ballots require a sample size of 16,638.
7. If at any time the auditing process reveals a statistically significant probability of voter fraud for any voting district, then a full recount for that district will be accomplished under the eyes of the three monitors and the supervising judge, and members of the voting public will be polled via random sample in order to detect tampering (theft or changes) or the original voting ballots. Once all parties are satisfied as to the accuracy of the recount, a corrected tally sheet will be attached to the original vetted (signed) by the monitoring team as well as all senior members of the auditing team.
8. Monitoring teams will themselves be subject to independent monitoring, review, and auditing.
9. All persons involved in the voting process must be thoroughly vetted, with no history of any criminal or other misconduct.
10. Fines and prison times for misconduct during the voting process will be proscribed by law for each type of offense, and mandatory.
