An Open Letter to Arkansas Senator Kim Hammer:
I am writing you about Arkansas Senate Bill 250 which seeks to regulate paper for a proposed paper ballot election system. https://www.fayettevilleflyer.com/2023/03/01/arkansas-senate-committee-advances-bill-to-regulate-paper-ballots/
First making the counties pay for their paper is draconian and an attempt to usurp the will of the people forcing them to use a voting method that is questionable at best and criminal at worst I would further note that your legislation is particularly disturbing given the wealth of data suggesting rampant machine problems but the most disturbing report is from Dominion itself:
"In 2018 email cited by the defense in voting machine company’s defamation suit against Fox News, Dominion director of product strategy and security acknowledged the company’s technology was marred by a “*critical* bug leading to INCORRECT results.” You can read this report yourself at https://beforeitsnews.com/crime-all-stars/2023/02/key-dominion-exec-admitted-company-products-riddled-with-bugs-days-before-2020-vote-fox-lawyers-so-judges-are-deliberately-ignoring-the-machines-defects-2494799.html
Next there is the data presented by Computer scientist Alex Halderman revealing the many vulnerabilities of the machines which you can read for yourself here: https://www.c-span.org/video/?463480-4/washington-journal-j-alex-halderman-discusses-election-security. Just for the record, it is naive at best to assume that none of the vulnerabilities determined by Halderman have not already been taken advantage of and at worst downright reckless to assume that machine selections are secure.
I saw a presentation of your objections on Lindell TV last night regarding the paper ballot election system. I think it's clear that you have little to no understanding of machine driven elections which I hope I can clarify via some mathematical graphs as to why these devices are unacceptable.
I'll begin by presenting several election results charts by Dr. Douglas G Frank, a world-renowned physicist with sixty peer-reviewed scientific publications. He has been working to illustrate how the voting machine algorithms manipulate voter data in essentially a 'black box' environment. This series of plots was done by Dr. Frank, the first one is from Clement County and the second is Arkansas county during the 2020 election.
The first graph is Clement County, Arkansas. Frank presents some six curves representing the voter response. The Legend on the right describes the graph's colors and the data represented in each of the colors in the two graphs.
The first thing to note is that the total registrations exceed the population of the county (grey line at top of the curve) and (grey curve) on the right side about halfway down. The second area of concern is the turnout at 89.8 percent which is abnormally high across all age groups. Notice the light colored blue line is a prediction of what the red-black curves would look like. The most revealing statistic is Frank's prediction of the active registrations and ballots recorded (Light blue line) which is not only maintained throughout Clement county but is essentially identical (correlation factor = 0.998) throughout all Arkansas counties. The correlation ratio measures how well Frank's estimation of the active registrations matches the votes recorded in each county which is indicative of machine manipulation as every registered voter doesn't always vote and certainly not at a 0.998 correlation.
There is no reason to use electronic voting machines given the flaws that have been found in these and other analyses; it is simply a means to game elections. It doesn't matter which vendor machine the state uses, ES&S, Hart or Dominion, they all work the same and are all connected to the internet, if they weren't how else would the vote tabulations be reported? There is no reason to use machines given the flaws that have been found in the machine that disenfranchise Arkansas voters who don't want them
My conclusions are (1) that your Senate Bill 250 will unjustly keep the Counties from using the election method of their choice so that a machine vs paper count results is not possible thereby preserving the black box secrecy. (2) You have arbitrarily determined to punish counties voting for paper ballots because election integrity is not as important as the ability to fix an election. (3) There is some financial benefit either from the machine vendors or other independent sources that will reward you for forcing electronic voting.
become law it must immediately face a court challenge as the
abrogate the election process by legislative fiat.
