Tom Evslin: We must take precautions now to have a fair election

This commentary is by Tom Evslin of Stowe, an entrepreneur, author and former Douglas administration official. It is republished from the Fractals of Change blog.

It was necessary and appropriate to quickly open up drop off and remote voting during the pandemic conditions of the last presidential election. Despite some legitimate fears and some very illegitimate claims, the more open elections did not lead to significant fraud. There’s been enough investigation after the fact to make any reasonable person confident that Biden won and Trump lost because that’s the way the voters wanted it to be.

Tom Evslin

Unfortunately the good results from last time do not guarantee that we will have a fair election next time unless we take precautions now. Do you trust the other side not to cheat? Do you trust hackers of all kinds to stay away? Last time no one knew there would be such widespread open voting until almost the last minute. This time those who want to steal elections have plenty of time to prepare to cheat.

The country will be deeply damaged if there is enough evidence of fraud that the result of the coming presidential election is legitimately in doubt.

Mail-in ballots invite cheating unless we take steps to make them safe. Third party ballot collection is a disaster waiting to happen. Back in 2018, a South Carolina Republican primary had to be rerun because of a criminal operation involving collection ballots and forgery. There is very little protection against this being repeated many times over in states which allow third party ballot collection including Vermont.

Secret ballots were invented to prevent ballot-buying as much as to protect voter privacy. If the ballot is secret, how does someone who wants to buy a vote know that they actually got the vote that they paid for? This was a problem for Tammany Hall in New York City during the bad old days and they came up with a pretty ingenious solution; all it required was a few blank ballots to start with. Each person who was hired to vote would get a filled in ballot which they would smuggle into the voting booth; they didn’t get paid until they returned with the blank ballot they had been given by the election officials but didn’t deposit in the ballot box. That ballot would then get filled in and used by the next bought voter. Voting machines were supposed to end that scam but have problems of their own. We now use outsized cardboard ballots partly to avoid ballot smuggling.

If there is no effective verification of mailed in ballots, they can be used to make sure bought voters stay bought. The problem is worse if ballots are mailed to people who don’t request them because there will be blank ballots floating around. We know we have a large population of drug users whose addiction drives them to do almost anything to obtain the money to buy drugs (Tammany Hall counted on alcoholics to be part of its election stealing). If a crooked ballot collector can simply pay drug users for their blank ballots or even pay them to fill them in as told, that is certain to happen.  I’m not advocating disenfranchising those with a drug problem; but a requirement that votes be signed in a way that can be authenticated and delivered in person (preferably) would help prevent massive fraud. In the interest of safety, mail in ballots should have to be requested and individually mailed.

Verification requires something to verify against. Even if same day registration is allowed at polling places, prior registration must be required for mail in ballots. Signature verification is tricky although it can be automated to some extent, Passwords (and a mechanism for rediscovering forgotten passwords) would be familiar to most Americans by now,

I’d advocate online voting with authentication but think that’ll take too much time to develop in a hacker-proof way. And then might not be hacker-proof after all.

It’s racist nonsense to imagine that minority voters are less capable than anyone else of complying with some simple verification requirements. Also it’s racist to assume minority voters “belong” to one party or the other. It is necessary, however, that traditional polling places be equally accessible in all neighborhoods.

Trumpists and anti-Trumpists are both gearing up to declare the next election fraudulent unless they win. More frightening than that, they will absolutely believe their own accusations of fraud. Denial of results didn’t start with Trump even though he uniquely tried to turn denial into criminal insurrection. Stacey Abrams still hasn’t conceded that she lost the Georgia gubernatorial race; many people still believe that Trump only won the first time with Russian help; and, of course, you remember the hanging chad.

Extremists are not going to believe the next election is fair unless their side wins. Many Americans are going to be very unhappy with the next election no matter how it turns out. It is essential to national unity that the results not be clouded by actual evidence of fraud.

  1. As someone who respects our First Amendment, I welcome Tom’s views here.
    They illustrate and TELL us, perfectly, what the globalists are thinking. If we’ve not atrophied our deductive reasoning skills, we can predict what’s coming.
    Yes, Tom is a tool…a proud tool… of those who groomed him, and are now reaping what they sowed…and yes… Tom no doubt, enjoys those bennies to the hilt.
    But I’m glad we have Tom because without him to respond to, we’d be in an echo chamber.
    And that…is what THEY are trying to create…NO discourse. ONLY like minds. Focused on the problem.
    At least Tom evoked a rather rich resource for readers to plow though at their leisure, of reference materials refuting this new world order version of our futures’ efficacy, and even need to exist here in Vermont.
    Communism is our biggest threat.
    And they targeted our election system.
    Seems to be working well for them.

  2. In other words, Tom accepts the fraud, accepts being lied to, and accepts the USA and State of Vermont being run and controlled by a criminal syndicate. I assume his investment portfolio must be rife with CCP stock options as 90% of his commentaries slant toward kssing the imperial rings and hindends.

  3. Tom, you’re wrong when you say this: “If there is no effective verification of mailed in ballots.” I left VT a couple years ago and now live in heaven…”Maricopa County” !!!!! Ground zero. Trump did not lose. The mail in ballots meant nothing, really. Because EVERYONE get’s it wrong. The forensic audit CAUGHT the phony ballots and they deducted those ballots from the final tally. AND the mail in fraud was not enough toi turn the elction….maybe a few thousand. It is FAR too hard to coordinate thousands of people to fake ballots without people knowning and found out. The KEY to steal an election is NOT fake mail ins….it is COMPUTER ACCESS to the machines WHICH CAN ALTER ALL MAIL IN’s as needed! Subtract 500 for Trump and add 500 Biden. Do that OVER AND OVER.. NO ONE focuses on that, Only the fake news of mail in’s. Listen to the last half of the forensic presentation. they found massive machine anomolies AND INTERNET ACCESS!. They found the Dominion system had new vote mgmt files created off site, they were wiping data from Oct 20 to Nov 5 (the Repub mails in’s!) On Feb 1 SOMEONE wiped out a whole database because the forensic audit started FEB 2.. It is FAR FAR easier to coordinate 5 people to fraudulantly access vote systems, than it is to coordinate illegally thousands of fraud mail in’s. The MACHINES were altering mail in tallies! TECHNOLOGY frauded the election, not mail in’s…and it happend all over in the swing states.

    • Jeffrey,

      You are absolutely right about the machines being used for fraud. Several of my IT acquaintances say, machine fraud is easily performed by clever people.

      Another big item is universal mail-in ballots, matched with inflated registered voter lists. That enables all sorts of big-time fraud.

      Here is an example big enough to swing Pennsylvania towards Biden.

      In Pennsylvania, several months before the 2020 election, about 280,000 ballots in envelops were prepared in the Bethpage, NY area.

      Several weeks before the 2020 Election, they were shipped, from the Bethpage USPS center, by trailer truck, first to Harrisburg USPS center, where they were not unloaded, then to Lancaster USPS center.

      The driver lives in Lancaster, so he parked his trailer at the usual USPS loading dock, and went home with his tractor, which he had been doing each day for about 18 months.

      When he came back the next morning, his trailer was gone, and it has not been seen since.

      At the end of my article, you can read about the entire saga. See next comment.

      1) The USPS centers were criminally complicit
      2) Transporting ballots across state lines is a federal offense
      3) The top PA and NY election officials had criminally conspired to commit fraud

      The addresses on the envelopes were Pennsylvania addresses, which had been restricted to people who almost never voted.

      Some of them who did show up to vote, were told they already voted, and were given provisional ballots, etc.

      Have a nice day

    STATE SENATE HEARINGS OF FORENSIC AUDIT RESULTS OF ARIZONA 2020 ELECTION
    https://www.windtaskforce.org/profiles/blogs/state-senate-hearings-of-forensic-audit-results-of-arizona-2020

    The main purpose of this article is to inform lay people about some of the sordid details of the Arizona 2020 Election, that are not mentioned by the traditional Media, even though reporters of the Media know of/have access to these details, just by googling, and by reading the Arizona forensic audit report. Instead, these reporters write whatever generalities would be approved by editors and publishers; a sad state of affairs.

    Complaints From Voters

    After thousands of complaints by Voters regarding election irregularities, including operatives emptying backpacks of ballots into unsupervised drop boxes, in the middle of the night (on video), i.e., no Chain of Custody, the Arizona Senate decided to perform an independent audit.

    Maricopa County Obstruction

    Maricopa County election officials obstructed the audit, and criticized the audit, to the maximum extent, likely because they had a lot to hide. They even altered election computer files, just before handing the files to the auditors, as ordered by Arizona Courts

    The Media aided and abetted the County criticisms, and piled on with the usual mantras, such as “no widespread voter fraud”, etc.
    The County even sued the Senate, but lost in Arizona Court.
    BTW, the voters had nothing to do with these frauds.

    However, the professional auditors managed to resurrect the original files!!
    The computer-file-altering fraud was caught on date-stamped video recordings, the people were identified, and the case was referred to the Arizona State Attorney.

    NOTE: The Arizona Senate has the US Constitutional Right to perform forensic audits of all aspects of all elections held in the state, as affirmed by the history of prior cases brought before Arizona and US Courts.

    Forensic Auditors

    The Arizona Senate chose highly qualified, professional forensic auditors.
    Their work was greatly impeded by the obstruction and lack of co-operation of Maricopa County.
    The results of the forensic audit were presented in a 3-volume report.
    See table 5.3 of URL

    The forensic audit showed a vote tally of 2,088,569
    Maricopa reported a vote tally of 2,089,563
    Discrepancy was 944 ballots, i.e., the audit tally closely matched the results originally reported by Maricopa County.
    The audit showed Biden gained 99 votes, Trump lost 261votes.
    Numerous state election statutes were violated. See 3-h video
    The above data was widely reported by the Media to prove the election was “fair and fraud-free”, and the audit was a partisan waste of time and money, etc.

    Unidentified Names on Voter Lists

    Arizona Population: The Arizona population was 7.279 million people, of which Maricopa County was 4.485 million, including Phoenix, in 2019, per US Census Bureau.
    Arizona has the third highest number of Native Americans of any state in the Union; 286,680, more than 10% of the US Native American population of 2,752,158. Many of those live “below the radar”, i.e., do not show up on any standard database.

    Maricopa County Registered Voter Lists: The Arizona audit of the Maricopa registered voter lists could not find the identity of 86,391 voters, i.e., they lived “below the radar”. They do not appear to exist.

    On the lists 73.8%, or 63,757, were identified as “Democrat or no party affiliation”, i.e., more than 6 times the winning margin of Biden.
    See page 56 of URL

    At one point in time, those folks must have gone to a Town Clerk, and filled out and signed a form with personal data, and shown documentation, of which the Town Clerk would have made copies.

    Many of the “86,391” may be known to the Arizona Governor’s Office on Tribal Relations.
    Many of the “86,391” may receive healthcare via Medicaid.

    Many of the “86,391” likely did not know they were “registered voters”, because they never voted.
    It could be ballots with their names were “voted” in 2020, unbeknownst to those voters.
    It could be not the first time this happened.

  5. Tom we need to get you like an editor and a high school grad to do your research.

    There is so much wrong in all of your articles that a simple Google search would tell you otherwise.

  6. Hey Evslin, you tool. If four states violate the Constitution by changing election laws that was not changed by those states legislatures then the elections in those states were unconstitutional. If it was unconstitutional than that means they were illegal. Stop trying to fool people with your propaganda it’s not working. By the by not any of those mail in ballots was fraudulent right ?

  7. Biden won?

    That’s what the mainstream news tells us.

    The mainstream also tells us that there’s such a thing as catastrophic CO2 warming, that giving young children loads of vaccines is perfectly safe, and that ivermectin is merely horse paste.

    I rest my case.

  8. Want a fair election process, well it’s pretty simple and has been in place for years !!

    All you need to do is go to your local polling place on the day of the election, bring some
    form of identification and vote, or if you cannot make it for whatever reason, just request
    an absentee ballot sign it, mail it back…..pretty simple.

    Any other alteration from this process is just looking for issues or fraud and if any of the
    elected officials like the Secretary of State for promoting ” mass mail-in ballots ” should
    be removed from that position, as it shows he’s only following an agenda and does not
    care about the citizens one legal vote …… pretty pathetic

    Crooks & Thieves are among us, and will do anything to stay in power, wake up people !!

  9. I don’t know why we are even reading this guy here.
    I stopped reading when he said Biden won.
    Biden did not win.
    Geez, did you see those Trump Rally’s Tom?
    We set records over here in NH with them. Big Records. He beat Elton John by miles.
    Biden, the dementia patient, never left the basement.
    Is your common sense gone?
    I waited in line in my sleepy town for over 3 hours.. and this was before I hiked in from way the heck down the road. I stood in line with all Trump voters- I know this because we all were talking.. since we were in line for hours.
    I’ve never in a lifetime seen anything like this at all, nothing anywhere near what I saw.
    The turnout was massive.. but yet somehow Trump didn’t win. How odd. *eyeroll*

    A major point that you fail to grasp Tom is that the Investigators and the people that steal elections are all on the same side.
    Go see what party all of our Secretary of States are on.. they sign off on our rigged elections and say they saw nothing..
    Duh.
    How big does the rat need to be before you smell it?

    Rasmussen says today that 58%of people disapprove of Biden’s job performance.
    Does this look like a winner?

  10. Tom,

    Vermont

    – Has universal mailing of ballots, and
    – Has universal harvesting of ballots, and
    – May soon have universal drop boxes; just dump whatever ballots in the boxes, 24/7, and they will be counted.

    All that ensures Dem/Progs will have veto proof majorities, for ever, no matter who is governor.

    Here are the 2020 Election shenanigans in Arizona, which came to light AFTER the Republican Senate ordered a forensic audit of ALL aspects of the election.

    • Tom,

      Oh, I forgot.

      In Vermont, when you arrive at the poll, to vote in person, the election folks are not allowed to ask for your ID.

      When you take an airline trip, you have to show a PHOTO ID, and a PASSPORT, etc.

      BTW, more fraud and more “unfairness” is achieved by CONDOS:

      1) Packing the voters lists by as many people as possible; more names to play with
      2) Leaving dead people and out-of-state people on the list
      3) Allowing temporary, out-of-state students, to vote in Vermont, and likely in their own state.

      All these items were found during the forensic audit in Arizona.
      You think Arizona unique?

      Now that such practices are out in the open, at least 75 million people, who were counted as “voted for Trump” (likely there were millions more pro-Trump ballots, but they were thrown away) will be on the alert looking for them.

      That, by itself, will partially constrict the shenanigans of the shameless/no-hold-barred/win-at-all-cost Dem/Progs

      • Here is what happened MONTHS BEFORE THE ELECTION

        EXCERPT

        PREPARATION OF 288,000 MAIL-IN BALLOTS IN BETHPAGE, NY FOR USE IN PENNSYLVANIA MONTHS BEFORE THE ELECTION
        https://www.windtaskforce.org/profiles/blogs/preperation-of-288-000-mail-in-ballots-in-bethpage-ny-for-use-in

        This article describes a multi-month project, started about August 2020, to fabricate up to 288,000 mail-in ballots near Bethpage, Long Island, NY, for use during the 2020 Election in Pennsylvania, a swing state.

        This article is a work in progress, because of on-going developments. See URL regarding this and other frauds.

        Folks should know this huge, premeditated, 288,000-vote fraud started several months BEFORE the election.
        It likely was not the only premeditated fraud in Pennsylvania and elsewhere.

        The Pennsylvania 2020 Election counted 6,835,903 votes
        2020 turnout was 70.93%, i.e., about 9,637,534 NAMES ON REGISTERED VOTER LISTS
        NON-VOTERS were about 2,801,631
        The Bethpage fraud used only 10.3% of the NON-VOTERS

        It would be easy to select only 10.3% of the non-voters to perpetrate the fraud

        BTW, Biden “won” Pennsylvania by 80,555 votes

        • Adding to your list Willem:

          GA dropbox camera’s recorded people dumping backpacks
          full of ballots into boxes, during the middle of the night, that were illegal to use for harvested ballots.
          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ko9cAfByNVk&t=226s

          And AZ where the counting machines didn’t count 33,000 votes that were cast… nothing to see here..

          Remember all the leftist outcry about diebold voting machines when R’s were winning but how little we hear when it got changed to their model dominion which they could control… like the system socialist/commies use in other countries to stay in power….
