May 9, 2019 2nd Meeting of the Voting Center Advisory Council (VCAC)
As a proxy for Dallas Eagle Forum at the 2nd VCAC's meeting, I got a snoot full of *&^%$# from the Dallas County Elections Department's discussion on Voting Centers. Voting Centers are another top down, central planning solution without sufficient data to support the expense, the upheaval, the manpower, and the security vulnerabilities that will come with VCs. It’s a colossal Power Shift without firing a single shot, tantamount to stuffing the ballot box! VCs target particular voting populations, to the exclusion of others (ours) with the outcome of skewed vote results and increased likelihood of result manipulations. I believe VCs will ultimately eliminate all Election Judge positions for Republicans and effectively silence our voices at the ballot box. Ushering in the federalization of our election process, we lose local control of our elections with the Voting Centers. They strangely remind me of the UN Regional Center concept. About 98% of the room (50+) was filled with leftists, who were all worried about increasing ballot access for their constituents. About five of us were conservatives. One was Libertarian and he thinks VCs are good. After the 2020 Presidential election, traditional precinct polling places will be consolidated into regional Voting Centers. Less is more. Really?
As far as I can tell no empirical evidence has been shown to justify the $7-10M price tag, nor have cost projections for annual expenses been shown. The Dallas County Elections Department says VCs will improve efficiency and cut costs with no objective measure of what either means. Except for meaning one thing: increasing voter turn out of a certain population. They all but proposed that ballots be available by Uber and Amazon right to your footstool, whether you're in the grocery store, the hospital, or the Post Office. They were real keen on using every subcategory of Census Data to find as many voters as possible.
Did I mention that the VC's will use wireless networks right inside the polling place? Wait! Whatever happened to no cellphones and laptops?? Beware! Even the DOD cannot secure the air, so do you think Dallas County Elections Department can secure the ballots?
