CLEAN UP DALLAS COUNTY ELECTIONS

MAINTAINING ACCURATE VOTER ROLLS

Voter rolls are filled with voters who have moved or died.  If these people stay on the rolls, they can be voted fraudulently.  Scroll down for details.

PRECINCT ONLY VOTING

While county-wide voting might be convenient, it enables one person to vote several times in several places.  The county lacks the resources to police this well.  Scroll down for details.

CHANGES TO ELECTION CODE CHAPTER 65

Chapter 65 of the Texas Election Code must be edited to allow paper ballots to be implemented more effectively.  Scroll down for details.

FOUR STEPS TO VALID ELECTIONS

A simple recipe for better elections.  Scroll down for details.

ARE VOTING MACHINES BETTER THAN PAPER BALLOTS?

Are the machines faster than paper ballots?

No.  In Argentina, over 27,000,000 paper ballots were counted in about six hours.  Machine results can take days or weeks.

Are the machines more credible to voters?

No.  Voters do not receive a completed ballot showing their votes.  Receiving a bar code or QR code instead is not reassuring.

Are the machines safer from cheating?

No.  If a voting machine computer were hacked, thousands of votes could be changed.  With computer passwords available to hundreds of election workers, it could happen.  This is not possible with paper ballots.

Are the machines more accurate?

No.  Like any system, counting mistakes can happen.  Computers erase and replace records, making it difficult to confidently find counting errors.

Are the machines more auditable?

No.  The machines do not allow third party audits.

Are the machines less expensive?

No.  Dallas County spends millions of dollars purchasing and maintaining the machines.  This is not necessary with paper ballots.

Are the machines easier to manage?

No.  The machines must be stored, costing many thousands of dollars.  Machines must be transporting by county workers, costing many thousands of dollars.  Machines can, and often do, malfunction during the election.

CONCERNS WITH DALLAS COUNTY ELECTIONS

Are our elections adequately protected from voter fraud?  Does Dallas County have the staff to verify the increasing number of invalid absentee and mail in ballots?  Does it have the staff to police county wide voting which makes it possible for one person to vote several times in several places?  Why do electronic voting machines create unreadable completed ballots which create voter confusion and insecurity?  There are many questions about Dallas County elections.

THE RESOLUTION FOR MAINTAINING ACCURATE VOTER ROLLS

Whereas, the citizens of Dallas County demand that our elections be verified and accurate and completed in timely fashion, we direct the Texas Legislature to add the following provisions to the Texas Election Code.

  1. Be it resolved that the County Registrar of Voters will publish an updated on line list of registered voters each month.  The initial voter categories will be Existing, New, Deceased, Moved, and Diminished Capacity.
  2. Be it resolved the County Registrar of Voters will conduct a full audit of county voter rolls thirty days before a major election.  The audit will be checked against the E-Verify database.  Changes to the county voter rolls after this audit and before the election will be prohibited.

These provisions may be adapted for efficiency and practicality by legislators, but the intent must remain intact.

Convention of Precinct # __________ of the Republican Party of Texas.

THE RESOLUTION FOR CHANGES TO TEXAS ELECTION CODE CHAPTER 65

Whereas, Texas and U.S. election processes have become centralized and computerized, sacrificing security for convenience and eroding public TRUST;

and

Whereas, evidence exists that unauthorized intruders have already infiltrated Texas election databases and manipulated voter data; and

Whereas, the Republican Party of Texas can restore public TRUST in Texas elections by adding a new plank entitled Verify Election Results after Plank #248 of the Texas GOP Platform, Government and Election Integrity, subtitle Elections.

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED

We support changing the Texas Election Code Chapter 65 to allow each election authority:

(i) the flexibility to use and post video that documents the vote counting process, including video of each ballot and each counting station;

(ii) the option to use additional methods of hand counting that are more efficient, transparent, verifiable, and secure than the method currently set out in Chapter 65 of the Texas Election Code. One example among several would be the use of offline vote counting calculators with functionality limited to manually adding one vote at a time. Calculators should feature LED displays large enough to be viewed from the online video recording.
