ALERT: WERE YOU HARASSED BY A “BALLOT HARVESTER” LAST ELECTION?

While political leadership in California is complaining about voter fraud, ballot harvesting, illegal people on the voting rolls, the people of California are acting.  A few months ago Election  Integrity Project California sued in Federal Court.  They won.  Now, per the agreement up to 3 million people illegally on the voting rolls MUST be taken off.

You have heard the speeches, read the statements that ballot harvesting killed the GOP in 2018.  Yet, the leadership knew about this problem since 2016—and did and said nothing.  Now we have another private group, Judicial Watch, from Washington D.C. doing what our leadership should be doing.

I also want to know if you gave your ballot to a “ballot harvester,” and if you did, whether your vote was actually counted. Only you can check whether your vote was counted, at the Secretary of State’s website: https://voterstatus.sos.ca.gov/

If you were harassed or pressured by a “ballot harvester,” or if you gave your ballot to a “ballot harvester” and it was never counted, Judicial Watch wants to talk to you. In fact, we may want to start a lawsuit on your behalf. Please contact us at [email protected]

Glad to see that private folks and groups believe in honest elections and want to make them happen.  Here is what I expect.  To some leadership means finding the parade, then getting at the head of it and claiming they are leaders.  To me a leader is someone that does, not just says.  What type of aggressive leadership do you want?

CALIFORNIA VOTERS:

WERE YOU HARASSED BY A “BALLOT HARVESTER” LAST ELECTION?
– DID YOU GIVE YOUR BALLOT TO A “BALLOT HARVESTER”—AND WAS IT COUNTED?
Judicial Watch, 5/22/19   

JUDICIAL WATCH MAY SUE OVER CALIFORNIA’S “BALLOT HARVESTING.”
Dear Ms. Hile,

I am writing today to ask if you were pressured in any way by a “ballot harvester” in November 2018.

“Ballot harvesting” is where a person goes door-to-door through a neighborhood trying to collect vote-by-mail ballots filled out by voters. In California, the “harvester” is supposed to turn those ballots in to elections officials. “Ballot harvesting” is so prone to fraud and abuse that it is unlawful in most states. But California not only allows the practice, it has the worst “ballot harvesting” law in the country.

I also want to know if you gave your ballot to a “ballot harvester,” and if you did, whether your vote was actually counted. Only you can check whether your vote was counted, at the Secretary of State’s website: https://voterstatus.sos.ca.gov/

If you were harassed or pressured by a “ballot harvester,” or if you gave your ballot to a “ballot harvester” and it was never counted, Judicial Watch wants to talk to you. In fact, we may want to start a lawsuit on your behalf. Please contact us at [email protected]

The problem is that this activity is completely unregulated. Anyone can go door-to-door collecting ballots—even campaign workers. Even minors. Even noncitizens. “Harvesters” are not required to give their names to election officials, let alone show any ID. Before an election, there is no list of registered “harvesters.” After an election, there is no list of who engaged in “harvesting.” There is no way of telling who touched or handled voters’ ballots—no way to determine the chain of custody.

“Harvesters” can refuse to collect ballots from anyone they suspect of voting the “wrong” way. They can discriminate on the basis of race, religion, or viewpoint. They could intimidate voters, suggest who they should vote for, or try to fill out voter’s ballots with them, or even for them. There is nothing to stop them from illegally altering ballots that are not properly sealed. And there is nothing to prevent “harvesters” from illegally throwing ballots in the nearest trash can, if they think they might be cast for a candidate the “harvester” doesn’t like.

If you have been victimized by a California “ballot harvester” Judicial Watch may be able to help. Please contact us right away at [email protected].

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

Thomas Fitton

    Everyone needs to contribute to Judicial Watch… AND they’re tax deductible, too!!!

    They’re doing great work on behalf of conservatives in California and nationwide, work that should be done by Jessica Patterson…

    Been kinda quiet from her since February….

    This is so great! So glad to see it! Have been waiting and hoping for just such a move. Election integrity is fundamental and one thing we know for sure is that we can’t have election integrity with this ripe-for-fraud ballot harvesting nonsense. There are a number of other issues too such as motor-voter shenanigans and same-day registration, et al, but okay, one thing at a time.
    Thank you Tom Fitton and Judicial Watch!

    Shining a bit of sunlight on this practice of progressive malfeasance will
    soon fade as all this political power flowing from San Francisco through
    the halls of Sacramento will be forgotten by the voters in California. Why
    would anyone with half-a-brain give their ballot to a doorbell ringer unless
    the “voter” is really not a “voter”. Judicial Watch is a respectable seeker
    of wrong doers; But why is it necessary for an our-sider to expose the
    miscreants in this State.

    • You’re right, but don’t think of Judicial Watch as “an outsider” any more than the ACLU. Judicial Watch is OUR version of the ACLU.

  4. What is needed is for the Electoral College to disallow the votes from any State that have not cleaned up their voting rolls and procedures. Can you imagine the screams from the whiny dems on losing their Kaliforniastan 65 electoral college votes? (Hee-hee!)

    AND THE LEFTIST DEMOCRATS CLAIM TO WORRY ABOUT THE RUSSIANS STEALING THE ELECTION! WHAT A JOKE!! THEY ARE THEY ONES STEALING OUR VOTES!

    3 million illegally registered California voters, and Satan’s spawn Killary Clinton claiming popular vote victory of 3 Million votes ,,,,, Why, ..I’m just SHOCKED, I tell ya, what an AMAZING coincidence ! (And that’s without NY, ILL, and other DemonRat strongholds ) Who’d a thunk it, huh ?

  7. Reminder: Being told by a court to remove 3 million illegal voters from your voting rolls and actually removing 3 million illegal voters from your voting rolls are two very different things.

  8. Christopher says

    Wondering why nobody has initiated legal action the State of California for an unconstitutional ballot collection law? I nothing else at least get some safeguards implemented. The current group of Republicans in DC are a pathetic bunch doing little more than collecting a paycheck. Wow, don’t ever wonder why Republicans are so phoked up this is just one example of many.
