From the New York Daily News. “A Picture of Democracy by Looking at Ballot Images.” Folks, we are getting the word out and are stopping election officials state by state from hiding or destroying ballot images. Ballot images are public records and must be used to publicly verify our elections!
The editorial begins, “We are grateful that Alabamians rejected Republican Moore, with his bigoted views and documented history of attempts to seduce teen girls, won’t be in the Senate. But count us disappointed that Moore’s ex-colleagues on the Alabama Supreme Court denied him fair opportunity to prove his cockamamie claim that rampant voter fraud denied him so many votes that he should have beaten Jones instead of losing by around 22,000 votes.
“It was they, after all, who overturned a lower court ruling ordering Alabama to save scanned images of every vote cast in the Senate race. Had the scans survived, Moore — and anyone else — would have been able to examine the digital images of the ballots cast and search to his heart’s content for missed votes and other irregularities. Making public the digital images preserves voter privacy, protects the integrity of original paper ballots and allows for certainty in any challenge.”
