This morning, the Luzerne County, Pennsylvania Board of Elections deadlocked on a vote to certify the results of the November 8, 2022, midterm election. Two Democrat board members voted in favor of certification; the two Republicans voted against; and the third Democrat abstained, stating that he still wanted clarification and answers from the debacle that occurred on Election Day. The result of the vote was welcomed with a burst of applause from the audience at the county courthouse. Despite the concerns of the County Solicitor, who informed the Board that the State could file a lawsuit against the County as a result of the non-certification, and the Democrats' evident desire to rush ahead with the process, certification of the results would have been premature, and serious questions raised by the November 8, debacle would have remained unanswered.Read more
As Election Day 2022 comes to a close, Florida continues to be the poster child for how impactful state election reforms can be.

With less than two weeks until Election Day, candidates are taking to the debate stage to face off on the issues. Last night, it did not go well for them. Blatant lies, misrepresentations, and even casual dismissals of the voters concerns were part of three Democrat candidates' playbook.
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer was the classic example of this. While debating Republican candidate Tudor Dixon on Tuesday night, Whitmer claimed that schools were only closed for 3 months as a result of the COVID pandemic.Read more
On Sunday, the RNC, NRCC, and the PAGOP filed a lawsuit against the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for its plan to illegally accept undated mail-in-ballots in direct opposition to a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court earlier this month.

Yet another Democrat secretary of state has “accidently” encouraged non-citizens to illegal register to vote. This time it is Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold:
Around 30,000 non-U.S. citizens living in Colorado were mistakenly sent postcards late last month encouraging them to register to vote. . . .
That Department of Revenue driver's license list includes residents issued special licenses for people who are not U.S. citizens. But it didn't include formatting information that normally would have allowed the Department of State to eliminate those names before the mailers went out, Griswold's office said.
The Colorado postcards, in English and Spanish, specify that residents must be U.S. citizens and at least 18 years old to register. They tell recipients how to register but are not a registration form.Read more
Straight from the Democrat playbook: if you can’t beat ‘em, just ignore the fact that you lost.
Today, the Supreme Court vacated the Third Circuit’s horrible ruling in Ritter v. Migliori and along with it took the air out of the sails of Democrats who continue to cry wolf over commonsense election procedures. But after the loss, of course, Democrat consigliere Marc Elias and other Democrats attempted to soften the blow.Read more
While Democrats do just about all they can to undermine election integrity and weaken important election procedures by filing innumerable frivolous lawsuits, Republicans are fighting back to uphold the rule of law and promote transparency in elections.
On Tuesday, September 20, the Republican National Committee announced that it filed a lawsuit in Clark County, Nevada to compel election officials to respond to public records requests seeking public information regarding the partisan breakdown and political affiliation of poll workers.Read more
In a brazenly partisan decision, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has upheld Act 77's no-excuse mail-voting law challenged last year by Bradford County election official Doug McLinko.
The majority of the @SupremeCtofPA has made clear that they are not “progressives judges” but just straight up Democrat politicians in robes. Pennsylvania voters will remember this in future judicial elections. @RepGrove https://t.co/qs8NBC6rRl 2/2— Michael Thielen (@MB_Thielen) August 2, 2022
Primary elections were held on Tuesday in five states: Idaho, Kentucky, North Carolina, Oregon, and Pennsylvania. In Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, a printing error wreaked havoc on the counting process for absentee ballots. Penn Live reported:
“Upon opening and scanning the first batch of ballots it became immediately apparent that a significant number of the mail ballots did not scan,” a county press release stated. “Upon further inspection of the ballots, the county identified the ballots were printed by the mail ballot vendor, NPC, with the wrong identification code. This error prevents the ballots from being scanned on the county’s central scanners.”Read more
