Reader Opinion: The election was fair

It is obvious this stunt was to sow doubt on our elections, and we cannot let these types of fake protests taint our free and fair elections!

Regarding the article “Crowd seeks election 2020 audit”, dated Oct. 27: Elections are not conducted with “feelings” even feelings from your heart, they are conducted with required processes, specific instructions, testing, training and strict supervision. None of the 75 misinformed people at the meeting came with evidence of fraud, no specific accusations of observed misconduct, or even basic knowledge of how elections are conducted. I doubt any of those people even know what a forensic audit is. It is obvious that they came to the board without even knowing the requirements of an election audit; they just “researched” about it on their chosen misinformational entertainment media and are now following up on their instructions from overseer seditionists.

Did any of those 75 people even vote? Crow Wing County uses a paper ballot. The vote counting machines do just that, count and tabulate the votes, and after the vote ends, the paper ballots are sorted and counted by hand by the election judges; which constitute both major parties as required. Also, the only cord on the voting machine is the power cord, there is no possibility of internet connection.

Obviously, none of them were at their precincts as witnesses because none of them reported questionable activity in a timely manner; yet they “feel” there was fraud or misconduct? Feelings are not evidence, including ones “from the heart”. It is obvious this stunt was to sow doubt on our elections, and we cannot let these types of fake protests taint our free and fair elections!

I encourage anyone who thinks the Crow Wing County election was in any way compromised to do what I did and become an election judge to see for themselves how professionally and competently our elections are conducted.
