On last Saturday’s Election Integrity Update Garland Favorito reviewed the material presented in Monday’s press conference where we exposed Secretary Raffensberger’s no-bid scheme to move Georgia’s voter registration data and management to vendor services on the Internet (“cloud-based software services”). In doing so Raffensberger will expose our voter registration data to many security and regulatory risks.

In addition, I reported on the success of the February 18-19 Statewide Election Integrity Summit. Attendees included volunteers from VoterGA, CP-GA, and many of our compatriots from around the state. I count it a blessing to have met many of you in person that weekend! The working sessions were excellent, and we learned that the 2021 successes in Virginia were due to the high level of collaboration amongst the national, state, and local groups working to ensure 98% poll watcher coverage of their state elections. As local election integrity task forces launch their regional efforts, I’ll be sure to announce them in future Saturday updates. Here in Georgia the work to train poll watchers has already begun, and the Constitution Party of Georgia will continue to train and assign poll watchers for the 2022 elections. We are looking for volunteers to serve as county election coordinators. Responsibilities include for scheduling poll watchers to serve and working with county elections officials to ensure poll watchers encounter no problems in the execution of their duties.
Garland and Janelle covered the following legislation we’re working on to advance election integrity:
- HB 933 will make physical ballots public record. We are convinced that we can demonstrate there was electronic manipulation of the election results, and the physical ballots will reveal election irregularities to help us to determine how to fix it.
- SB 538 will allow the state to provide special mail-in ballot security paper to the counties for elections. There are six sworn affidavits of counterfeit ballots in the Fulton County election results. This will help prevent ballot counterfeiting in the future.
- HB 1317 and SB 325 will ban drop boxes. We now know that ballot harvesting teams with up to 242 people operated in Georgia to stuff ballot drop boxes. SB202 left many holes in the drop box language including a lack of equal implementation across counties, allowing the governor to reinstate drop boxes, allowing for an opening large enough to facilitate ballot harvesting, etc.
- SB 233 will eliminate faulty Dominion machines and add comprehensive auditing. We will provide evidence in the next two weeks that there was electronic manipulation of certain county election results. This bill can help make sure it does not happen again.
- HB 1402 will ban indirect private money from influencing elections. SB202 only banned direct private money and private entities are circumventing the law by funneling money to elections directors indirectly though county commissions. This bill must also be enhanced to ban complimentary technical resources that are being supplied to the counties for nefarious purposes by implementing a simple language change to the already cited 21-2-71 (b) and 21-2-212 (g) such as:
“No state department or agency, county, municipality, consolidated government, state-wide or local authority, or other state or local government entity, nor any officer, agent, employee, or elected official of any such entity shall take, solicit, or accept any donations, funding, grants, human resources or gifts from any private individual or non-governmental entity for any purpose related to elections, including preparing for, administering, or conducting an election, registering voters, and voter education.”
