From Wendy: We must go out and meet people, especially in rural areas. I live in eastern Pierce County, which is semi-rural. Many Trump flags. I am willing to go door-to-door. We also need to listen to folks.

Intentional? What about the woman in Texas? Or are you talking WA?

I was going to ask the same about the woman in Memphis https://news.yahoo.com/black-woman-sentenced-6-years-231000713.html

You got that right. And being a voting activist while black, too!

Disinforming voters should be considered election fraudf
Robert Brown
01:03:30
Along with misinforming voters.
Tish Levee
01:04:27
And some of those charged cases were voter fraud by GOP
Jackie Rivas
01:04:34
Most cases of voter fraud were Trump voters.
Carol Sullivan Bothell
01:06:16
Inslee wanted to make deliberate misinformation on the part of elected officials that led to violence to be treated as criminal. #5843, but didn’t get out of committee.
Joyce Newport
01:08:01
That needs to become something voters an vote in - the corrupt elected officials will never support something so ethical.
Jackie Rivas
01:08:30
Governor Youngkin's (R-VA) son tried to vote at age 17 in past election.
Joyce Newport
01:08:58
Oh - it's ok if you are white or GOP
Carol Sullivan Bothell
01:08:58
There’s definite method to the madness - Trump and Republicans have undermined the press to such a point that of course people who “believe” don’t trust claims that there is no real election fraudd
Tish Levee
01:09:25
Thanks so much fr all of your hard work, Cyndy
Tish Levee
01:09:41
sorry, Cindy, not Cydiy
Robert Brown
01:09:53
About Inslee’s bill: While I am for it, there are questions about what is true in any given situation, aren’t there? This is almost totally due to Trump, IMO.
Carol Sullivan Bothell
01:11:19
Right, Robert.
Julie Anderson

Our audit is a safeguard that is absent in states where they don't have marked ballots. An advantage of mailed ballots instead of machine voting.

To some great extent democracy is like religion it requires faith in your fellow participants that everyone will do the right thing when they vote. There is so little voter fraud that the notion that people will do the right things if given a chance should be the hew and cry rom the media. When have you heard a news reporter or when have you read a newspaper article championing the voter doing the right thing?
Dwight Rousu, Redmond
01:20:31
Percentage is not usually the criteria for ballot checking. They use statistical sampling considerations to arrive at a number to check
Carol Sullivan Bothell
01:21:07
Good point, Arnold.
Linda Brewster
01:21:12
Arnold Byron is absolutely right!!!!
