As I write this letter today. Californian will be voting to decide to recall or not recall our current California Governor Gavin Newsom.
Newsom’s opponent, Republican Larry Elder, is already taking steps to catch any fraud or election related shenanigans. Elder has created a special fraud report website which I will not mention here. Many compare this to Trump’s Stop the Steal of the recent 2020 presidential election.
We have all seen Republican states vote in new and rather alarming election integrity laws. There were even voter fraud ballot harvesting claims made during the recent Imperial Beach election. I have this to say: all these voter fraud accusations are an insult to our city, county, and states election officials, our county registrar, and all of our poll workers. Mass voter fraud allegations are based on the assumption that our elections officials are incompetent and incapable of running fair and honest elections.
I’m a professional signature gather and have circulated petitions in California for 30 years. Petitioners also register people to vote. When we are busy we are on the phone with the county registrar of voters and the secretary of state almost daily. They always answer the phone right away. and are happy to answer any questions. I have asked them about illegals voting or dead people voting or felons voting. Always my questions have been answered. Our San Diego country registrar Michael Wu and team are hardworking and devoted people.
I can personally testify to this. I find it very upsetting that people can be so easily led by politicians to believe that our elections officials who are our neighbors and friends are uncaring, incompetent witless individuals who are incapable of managing a fair and honest election.
I would encourage everyone who is truly concerned about election integrity to call our San Diego country registar of voters and let them explain how are elections are kept fair and honest. We must not let partisan allegations undermine our faith in Americas right to vote.
