When we went to the polls on November 3rd, we all had cast our votes for the President, Senators, Representatives, City and County officials not to forget the Propositions and Measures. Then we waited anxiously for the results. We are still waiting on states to finish counting but we are also seeing multiple “glitches” and questionable acts of Governors, Post Masters and election volunteers along with more ballots returned than registered voters. This will not be over for a while with many that are calling for a re-verification and re-counts especially in the swing states. Just so we all are on the same book and page, the Mainstream Media does not ever call who the President-elect is.
As we vote for a President, we are actually voting for a group of people called electors. When a candidate receives the most votes then normally that candidate receives those electoral votes. Two states, Nebraska and Maine, can split their electoral votes. However, the electors do not always cast their votes for the candidate that got the popular vote. We saw this in the last Presidential election.
Each elector gets one vote based on their representation in Congress. There are 538 electors selected. So when they are called on to give their vote, they will say who it goes to. The candidate wins on who receives more than half of the votes at 270.
This is the timeline that we are following.
November 3, 2020 - Election day
December 11, 2020 - California is the last state to certify their votes
December 14, 2020 - Electors vote
January 6, 2021 - Joint session of Congress counts electoral votes
January 20, 2021 - President sworn in
A lot of the turmoil on the voter fraud issue is having more ballots received than registered voters. Let's take a quick look at that. With the system that was deemed to us by our Governor in California, it opened up a can of worms and voting more than once became very easy with all of the official ballots that were mailed out. Many of the voter rolls were not cleaned up and many people who no longer lived in the state and those that were deceased received official ballots in the mail. One thing that would have stopped this cold would have been Voter ID. Even in Mexico a picture Voter ID is required to vote. Any politician that doesn’t want this ID does not have America's best interest at heart. If we were in Jefferson, we would have voter ID and we would know that our votes are guarded and one of the most important things a citizen can do is vote. We could have confidence in the system that is in the State of Jefferson. When there is no integrity in the election system, then who can you trust? This is one of the countless reasons we need the State of Jefferson now.
