LAA GradesTexas Election Integrity Bill: “F”

Look Ahead America today released our analysis of Texas’s attempt at election integrity, Senate Bill 1. Look Ahead America’s Research Director, Ian Camacho, who led the development of the report, stated the following:

Texas Senate Bill 1 does nothing to change the underlying issues with elections and in many cases makes the situation worse.

From the 35-page analysis:

Texas S.B. 1 purports to achieve voter integrity, however, the voters of Texas deserve much higher standards from their elected officials in addressing voter fraud and election integrity.

Not only does it fail at all of Look Ahead America’s core objectives to strengthen our elections, in many cases it actually undermines voter integrity. Not in the way that the Department of Justice claims it does, however, as the bill makes clear that the laws are not to discriminate against those with disabilities and leaves room for their aid. Likewise, at various points many accommodations are made for those with disabilities, those in need, those in hospice or assisted living. The actions by the DOJ appear at best uninformed and at worst political theater.

LAA’s Research Group produced the 35-page VISAGE Report which includes a full summary of the bill as well as an analysis of how well it addresses key election integrity concerns.

LAA Releases Analysis of Arizona SB 1241

Today, Look Ahead America released it’s analysis of Arizona SB 1241. Read that analysis here: LAA – AZ SB 1241 Analysis.

LAA’s Executive Director Matt Braynard made the following statement on the analysis:

This was a highly contentious voter integrity reform bill. While it failed, we thought it would be worthwhile to give a clear-eyed review of what exactly this legislation attempted to do. It’s our conclusion that despite claims to the contrary, it was a reasonable attempt to improve how elections work in the Grand Canyon state. While we believe much more serious reforms are necessary, not just in Arizona but across the country, this bill certainly did no harm and had many provisions that would go a long way to restoring confidence in the state’s elections.

LAA’s Voter Integrity Project Releases Revised GA Report

We received helpful feedback from many of the organizations with whom we shared our unredacted data. Thanks to their help, we’ve made the following improvements to the report. Find the new report here: LAA_GAReport_Rev_A.

Here are some of the key changes:

• We discovered that we under-reported in Tranche One by additional 345 illegal registrations, boosting the illegal votes in the margin of victory from 1,056 to 1,401, or up from 9% to 12%.

• We also added subdivisions and severity rankings of all the items in Tranche One in anticipation of counter arguments that these were transposed Mailing Addresses.

• We reviewed three of our challenged examples that we coded as illegally cast vote determinations. We provided additional data in Appendix A to show that these voters definitely lived out of state and did not qualify as absentee voters.

• The 2015 study that we cited and GA SOS Raffensperger’s recent removal of over 100,000 supposedly inactive voters using the NCOA validates our methodology. While the 2017 article we also cited for OOSSR does not mention NCOA, it actually fortifies our NCOA claims and methodology.

• We corrected MOE downward in Tranches Two and Three per a previous miscalculation.

• We reviewed some previously undetermined cases in Tranche Two. We determined that another twelve were illegally cast ballots, while determining three of them were legal.

• Upon reviewing our data that we collected, we believe that we actually underreported our findings. Since The Georgia Report only presented three of the six types of illegal votes being considered, it was more likely that the report understated the number of illegal votes in Georgia because our study was incomplete.

 

LAA Voter Integrity Project: 157,229+ Illegal Ballots Cast in Wisconsin

Read the public version of the Wisconsin Report here. 

Read a PDF version of this press release here. 

Today, Look Ahead America’s Executive Director Matt Braynard made the following announcement:

Today we are releasing our final Wisconsin Report demonstrating that the number of illegal ballots is – at a minimum – over 157,000. This is about eight times the 20,000 vote margin of victory in the presidential election.

This report is the product of the Voter Integrity Project (“VIP”), part of Look Ahead America’s Research Group. It builds on and supplements the initial analysis conducted by the VIP late last year and establishes beyond a reasonable doubt that the deserved winner of Wisconsin is unknowable.

We invite everyone to review the public version of the report at https://www.lookaheadamerica.org/wisconsinreport. We will also make the unredacted version with all of our supporting data available to journalists and academics who request access.

This report is the result of countless hours of work by our research volunteers under the leadership of our Research Director, Ian Camacho. For their help, I am truly grateful. I’m also grateful to the many donors to this project that funded the extraordinary data acquisition and processing costs.

LAA Ten-State Rally to #FreePoliticalPrisoners: An Important First Step

View a  PDF of this Press Release here. 

Today, Look Ahead America’s Executive Director made the following statement:

We relaunched this organization from scratch six months ago. To have been able to mobilize on a national level and hold ten near-concurrent rallies across the country to #FreePoliticalPrisoners is a remarkable achievement.

I am so proud of all of the brave patriots who participated in these rallies under the same threat to their rights of so many who are being held in prison now for a non-violent expression of their First Amendment rights. It required great courage participate in these rallies

And as so many are still being persecuted by the FBI, denied bail by a corrupt judiciary fed lies by our Department of Justice, and while the death of Ashli Babbitt remains uninvestigated, we have much to do.

Look Ahead America and its network of thousands of volunteers will continue to shine the light on this violation of civil rights, of human rights, and of basic decency. These actions are a stain on our nation, and we will not give up in the fight for justice for our brothers and sisters.
