What Do You Mean By Overseeing?

Posted in Library of Congress, Weekly Notes by chamblee54 on November 26, 2018

Exactly what do you mean by “overseeing”? As I understand it, the counties register voters, set up the polls, count the votes, and send the results to the SOS. What does the SOS do? In all probability, the county is responsible for sending drop cords to the polling place, not the state. It would be helpful if you have a source from a government website to detail this. So many people become instant experts when discussing this issue. Another confusing issue is deletion of inactive voters. Is this done by the county, the state, or a combination of the two? If it is a combination, how do we tell who does what? If you look at the various county websites, you will see that the county clearly does registration and counting. This is what Fulton County says. This is one of the counties where voting machines were sequestered in a warehouse, resulting in long lines. ~ Department of Registration and Elections The Registration and Elections Department is responsible for conducting elections in Fulton County and registering voters who reside within Fulton County. ~ Israel’s Netanyahu survives early poll threat ~ election was not stolen ~ Signature mismatches, missing birthdays and errant spouses: Why thousands of absentee ballots were tossed out in Georgia ~ absentee ballots in georgia ~ What You’re Saying When You Say “I Don’t Need a Mic” ~ Hollywood stars revolt after Brian Kemp’s election; Georgia leaders fight back ~ Stacey Abrams calls Kemp Georgia’s ‘legal’ governor, won’t say he’s legitimate ~ Federal judge blocks Georgia ‘exact match’ voter ID law ~ Airbnb drops Israeli settlements from listings ~ 5 things to know about who runs Georgia’s elections ~ In Defense of Puns ~ How to Talk to People, According to Terry Gross ~ Why Airbnb Will Have a Hard Time Enforcing Its Israeli Settlement Ban ~ Stacey Abrams Says She Was Almost Blocked From Voting In Georgia Election ~ stacey last year ~ Voter registration fraud alleged at Democratic-backed group ~ The new New Georgia Project: Stacey Abrams’s $10 million plan to double down on voter registration William Perry, founder of Georgia Ethics Watchdog, believes the lawmaker should make her financial records from her voter registration work public … “It gives cause to worry when there’s someone stirring so many pots … In a perfect world, anything you’re doing that would influence a campaign or an election should be disclosed. It’s a glaring example of what makes people sick about politics.” ~ The New Georgia Problem ~ Stacey Abrams, the New Georgia Project, and Winning Elections ~ Who Said This? ~ abrams bio ~ Kasim Reed: Georgia needs ‘professional organizations’ to be competitive, not the New Georgia Project ~ A high-profile Democratic voting group faces new scrutiny ~ chapo trap house contra points ~ ContraPoints Goes on Chapo | Chapo Trap House | Episode 264 FULL ~ jm fire ~ the moth ~ salute to abortion ~ What We Must Do Now: Abrams, Georgia & Something Extraordinary ~ Et Tu, Greg Palast? ~ eorgia Voter Purge List ~ You’re Morally Obligated to Call Out Your Racist Relatives at Thanksgiving ~ Georgia’s Kemp Purged 340,134 Voters, Falsely Asserting They Had Moved ~ Moroccan woman in UAE ‘killed lover and cooked him’ ~ Trump Dares Congress to Do What He Won’t on Saudi Arabia ~ aa ~ The Most Compelling Police Interrogations pt. 7 ~ f Stacey Abrams’ sour grapes ~ Why Drag Is the Ultimate Retort to Trump ~ GOP candidate improperly purged 340,000 from Georgia voter rolls, investigation claims ~ oswald video ~ what is hate speech ~ A Brand New Interview with David Foster Wallace EL: Do you consider yourself an accessible writer, and do you know what kind of people read your books?

The counties conduct elections, count votes, and register voters. The only thing I can see the SOS doing is maintaining the voter rolls, and totaling the votes from the counties. And, in this election, taking the blame for anything that goes wrong. I have googled this. The only thing I have not found is exactly who is responsible for maintaining the voter rolls. ~ I think they should have a longer grace period, than the current 3 years. However, if you don’t vote, eventually you should be taken off the rolls. ~ Mr. Kemp, are you removing black voters from the voter rolls just so you can win this election? … And these lists are violently racially prejudiced. … He has closed stations in neighborhoods of voters of color, in Atlanta, for example, in the 6th Georgia Congressional District. He will be the one—when people go to the polling stations and find they’ve been purged, and they fill out those provisional ballots, it will be Brian Kemp who decides whether they get counted. Absentee ballots—you just heard how panicked he was about the massive number of absentee ballots coming in from voters of color, from Democrats. And he’s going to be able to decide which of those ballots get counted. ~ This is the story of the mass exodus from Georgia that never happened, and the mass purge of voters by Kemp, GOP candidate for governor, through methods guaranteed to disproportionately take away the vote from the young, the poor and voters of color…. Another expert on our team, Mark Swedlund, is not surprised the postcard trick captures Black and poor voters disproportionately. “It doesn’t shock me at all. Response rates are lower among people of color, in particular among African-American renters,” he said. ~ Because that’s the signal that this heartbreaking story will become the hammer to smash the Kemp-created Jim Crow machine…. More revolutionary is that she is the first Democratic candidate to demand an end to racist ethnic cleansing of the voter rolls. ~ Crashes of Convenience: Michael Hastings ~ Kemp didn’t even bother to hide any of his actions. He used his office to commit voter suppression through propaganda, loopholes and outright lies. He put on a disgraceful masterclass in voter suppression and his legacy as governor should be forever tainted by the well-worn, white supremacist tactics he employed. ~ State officials appear to have singled out black voters in targeted purges. Kemp also canceled or suspended 35,000 voter registrations using Exact Match, a version of Kris Kobach’s notorious Crosscheck program that compares registrants’ information with motor vehicle and Social Security databases. If a single letter, space, or hyphen did not match the database information, the voter application was rejected. Black voters were eight times more likely than whites to have their registrations halted due to Exact Match. ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah
