On Sunday, June 5, two friends and I witnessed the absurdity of the California election process at the Orange County Registrar of Voters (ROV) facility in Santa Ana. As public observers, which anyone can do, we watched the ludicrous process that basically empowers temporary workers to become what can best be called “signature experts.” These workers have immense authority in determining which ballots are valid and which might be fraudulent.

Third-world countries would probably reject the way ballot signatures are verified in Orange County.

The (mostly temp) ROV workers sit at computers comparing primary ballot signatures to registration signatures. About ten feet behind each worker, observers watch what they are doing on large monitors.

What my friends and I observed were ROV “signature experts” quickly reviewing eight signatures in approximately five seconds: four primary ballot signatures and four registration signatures.

‘); googletag.cmd.push(function () { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1609270365559-0’); }); }

Could you continually review eight signatures every five seconds?

When observers see a discrepancy between a ballot signature and a registration signature, they can do nothing! They cannot ask the ROV temp workers to re-examine the signature they had just verified. They cannot write down the voter’s name for an ROV staff member to later review.

The only thing observers can do is stand like statues i.e., quietly observing the process. (Observing the fraud?)

In our short time observing, most signatures were easily matched. However, there were still too many questionable signatures that, in our opinion, required a secondary assessment to determine if the person who signed the primary ballot is the same person who signed the voter registration form.

The ROV supervisor didn’t appear to care that we saw numerous questionable signatures. After all, this is California and election integrity makes as much sense in the Golden State as Joe Biden talking to Corn Pop.

Speaking through her N-95 mask, the supervisor stressed that our role was solely to observe the process. (Observe the fraud?) Handing us small index card-size forms, we were told to detail what we had observed.
