An Open Letter to Kim Hammer regarding Senate Bill 250 that Makes Counties Pay for their own Ballot Paper

by Allen Williams

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.

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

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: 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.

The second graph analysis is from Arkansas County.  The machine didn't exceed the total population in this county but the same general pattern found in Clement county is repeated.  Again the extraordinary turnout of 91.2 percent of all age groups is highly improbable.  How many of these people are over 90 years old? The revealing mathematical predictor curve Dr. Frank shows estimates how well the active registrations (black line) matches the total ballots recorded (red line) with a correlation factor of 0.994. It is impossible for these two lines to have a high correlation basis in county after county which supports his premise of machine manipulation.  Once a ratio of Candidate -A to Candidate -B is determined, you can successfully predict the county 's winners.  It is impossible for a candidate to win by the same percentage margin in every county in the state.  This is indicative of fraud.
These graphs show Arkansas has more people on the voter roles than live in the state. Isn't that illegal? These kind of discrepancies allow machines to vote the voter database names which leads me to ask why isn't this a concern to you? Are you even aware of this possibility?

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.

 If this bill should become law it must immediately face a court challenge as the Senate cannot abrogate the election process by legislative fiat.
