Shasta County elections office warns of potential voter intimidation ahead of 2022 midterms

We know that dead people and folks that moved out of State still illegally get ballots.  So a group of people are canvassing to find out who is illegally getting ballots—and the Shasta Registrar of Voters is upset about fraud being found on the voting rolls.

Of course if an audit was made of the voting rolls, showing the illegal aliens, the dead and those that moved out of State were taken off the rolls, it would not be necessary for private citizens to do the work of the Registrar of Voters.

“The reports of alleged voter intimidation come six weeks before the Nov. 8 election.

County Clerk and Registrar of Voters Cathy Darling Allen said she has been contacted four times since Sept. 17 by four different voters about people wearing reflective vests who claim they are part of a “voter task force.”

“They are questioning who lives at the address, who is registered at the address and who voted at the address,” Darling Allen said.

Darling Allen said she was told the questioners were “very aggressive.”

Yes, to some asking questions politely about voter fraud is being aggressive.   If our government won’t do it, then we have to—then challenge the fraudulent votes.

Initial for voter intimidation after reports of people canvassing neighborhoods and contacting voters at their homes.

The reports of alleged voter intimidation come six weeks before the Nov. 8 election.

County Clerk and Registrar of Voters Cathy Darling Allen said she has been contacted four times since Sept. 17 by four different voters about people wearing reflective vests who claim they are part of a “voter task force.”

“They are questioning who lives at the address, who is registered at the address and who voted at the address,” Darling Allen said.

Darling Allen said she was told the questioners were “very aggressive.”

Three of the people who called Darling Allen’s office live in Anderson and the fourth resides in Redding. She said this has never happened in the nearly 20 years she’s been the registrar of voters.

“Voters and all people living in Shasta County should know that employees of the County Election Department will not come to your home and question you. People who perform this kind of activity are violating the law and intimidating voters,” Darling Allen said in a news release. 

A similar case came across Redding Police Chief Bill Schueller’s desk. 

People claiming to be from a “voter taskforce” knocked on a resident’s door and requested personal information about voters living there, Schueller said. The resident called the police. 

Officers came out to the house but were unable to find the people in the resident’s neighborhood, Schueller said.

Darling Allen has contacted the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office, Redding Police Department and Anderson Police Department, the Secretary of State, and the U.S. Department of Justice, which launched a task force to combat threats against election workers in June 2021.

“Because I am not an investigator, I don’t have investigative authority. … I am going to get the professionals to do what they do,” she said.

It’s been two weeks since November 2020 election deniers claiming fraud and a “stolen” election inundated the Sept. 13 Board of Supervisors meeting in an effort to get Darling Allen to ignore election law by not destroying or recycling ballots and other election materials from the 2020 election.

Despite a motion by District 4 Supervisor Patrick Jones asking Darling Allen to retain the materials, supervisors took no action and allowed Darling Allen to follow election law and do her job.

A few residents who spoke at the Sept. 13 meeting said they had gone to some neighborhoods to cross check voter addresses.

“My concern right now is that voters know they don’t have to talk to those folks,” Darling Allen said of the reports of alleged voter intimidation. “My understanding is they report themselves working for the election’s department. That’s not accurate. I just want folks to understand, this is not an effort by my office.”

  1. Awwww Shucks…..you mean they are caught stuffing the ballot box?

    And how many years will the registrar spend in jail?

    NONE..

    Again why would you vote Democrat?

  2. My understanding is that there is a state-wide voter database that counties are required to adhere to.
    It is FULL of bad entries, expired/dead/moved voters etc.

    However, you cannot even sue the counties to get updates because they have no control over the state’s database.
