Yep.  Voting should be sacred and well protected in a civic sense, but that doesn't mean it is.  Here are seven ways the various sides play games to keep those voter's ballots that they don't like from being counted.

  1. Last minute poll location moving or poll location closing.  A variety of excuses can be used like not enough volunteers, location availability conflicts, predicted turn out excessive capacity, moving a polling location to where it is very inconvenient to get to, closing polls for breaks, “accidentally” running out of ballots, etc…
  2. Procedural purging and ballot tweaking.  Using dirty tricks like if a signature goes outside of the box, a certain checkbox that is kind of obscure isn’t checked, having multiple unobvious signature requirements, moving names around in unexpected order (like having some candidates appear on a back page), requiring two checks per vote, circles must be filled in not checked, etc....
  3. Roll purging.  People with similar names are considered “duplicates” and removed, though perhaps they should not be.
  4. Path guarding.  Setting people outside the polling location to intimidate or confuse voters a given side doesn’t want voting.  One example is having Black Panthers, Neo Nazis, or other menacing types positioned outside a polling area to try to scare off voters.  Another is having fake volunteers asking voters for their names, and if they aren’t registered to your party, telling them “you are not on the list” and walking away, leaving voters to be confused if they are registered to vote or not.
  5. Premature announcements.  Taking “polling samples” from areas where one side is favored and making it seem that those samples are representative of the vote as a whole (it may not be) to discourage voters from “wasting their time” and going to vote.
  6. Mail glitching.  This requires bureaucratic inside assistance, but doing things like not mailing out absentee or early voting cards on time, “losing” things in the mail, delaying receipt of items until after the due date, etc…
  7. Volunteer games.  This requires poll worker cooperation.  Giving bad instructions that will knowingly cause some voters ballots to be disqualified, “losing ballots”, “accidentally” handing out multiple ballots to those who look likely to vote the way a given side likes, filling in empty ballots that are not used by voters, etc…

Ok, this was in response to a friend's question, what caused the death of political literacy?

Here is my response.  He said I should post it.

Statisticians and scientist found out they can make money by selling their expertise to the highest bidder. Some began to create propaganda disguised as science. The public now knows. Same with the media. They whored themselves, and the public got it. Thus credibility is at an all time low. Plus with the internet there is a fragmentation of how people get news, so the traditional media would be having problems without their credibility issue. Lastly, because communist control the school system, they began to teach "social studies" rather than "civics". Students now are no longer taught in any sort of dept their constitutional form of government, nor are they really taught how to think, just what to regurgitate. Thus political literacy is dying because it's traditional sources have been dying for a long time.

I plan to develop this thought out much further in my "Libre Esoterica Volume 1" in the pre-existing conditions section

This is by no means a complete list, but here are 10 techniques that we have seen for manipulating the vote.

  1. Poll Oversampling - Over sample certain groups so that poll numbers skew.  Example: getting responses from a higher percentage of democrats than republicans but sell the poll as "neutral" (leaving the exact way the pole was sampled in the fine print that most won't read).
  2. Bandwidth Management - Leaking stories to the press or social media in such a way that those stories gain headlines while your opponent's stories are over shadowed.  Releasing and holding material to disrupt your opponents narrative while giving your own narrative more momentum.
  3. Fake Law Suits - People come out of the wood work and can claim all sorts of bad things were done to them right before an election.  Funny how they were all silent until then.
  4. Election Machine Hacking / Paper Ballot Losing and Stuffing - Funny how calibration almost errors always favor democrats. Also feel free to make it as easy as possible for large for large scale voter fraud to happen by not requiring ID checks to vote and do your best to get in friendly judges who will insist that although ID's are required for everything else under the son for voting they are not.  Have your volunteers lose voter registrations of the oppositions and fill out ballots for the dead. Again this is a huge subtopic to be flushed out in another post.
  5. Rings of Deniability - Make sure when you do something sketchy, always have a minion who either willingly or unwillingly will fall on their sword for the cause to take the blame.  Example: When you are caught putting Craigslist adds out to recruit protesters, make sure a minion is the one who actually runs the add.  When caught, make sure the minion will take all the blame and then dispose/fire the minion.
  6. Astroturf - Pay and / or bus people in to disrupt rallies, fill vacant seats so low shows don't embarrass a candidate.  Also use green screen technology to fill in non-existent crowds.
  7. Manufactured Mom and Pop Signs - When your astroturfers show up, give them pre-made signs that look like they drew them up themselves.
  8. Down Election Funding - While everyone's eyes are on the main candidates, make sure you legally or even illegally fund less interesting but just as important elections.  Example: Soros funding democratic candidates in red states to go after State prosecutor and State Treasurer positions.  These elections are not as sexy but their ramifications are immense.
  9. Gerrymandering - Beat the opposition before the race even beings by winning State positions that control how districts are drawn up.  Use lawfare to challenge things when they don't suit your party's interest.  Do your best to stack the Federal Election Commission and the DOJ with bureaucrats friendly to your redrawing efforts.
  10. Control the Media - Use crony capitalism carrot on the stick / punishment threats to control the big social media companies if your side is in power.  Do the same with traditional media (a whole other topic to be flushed out later).
