Arizona State Senator Sonny Borrelli’s SB1120 to add ballot counter-fraud measures to Arizona’s elections passed through the Senate Appropriations Committee, Tuesday along party lines.
Last Monday, The Gateway Pundit reported that this bill passed along with six more critical election integrity bills in the Senate Government Committee meeting.
Democrats did not vote for a single one of these election integrity measures. Why is that?
If passed in full, SB11120 will require counties to use standardized ballots with 19 different security features, including a holographic design and watermarks. The new ballots will also have QR codes that enable voters to track their votes using a smartphone.
Democrats don’t think we can afford the ballots that cost 25 cents each.
The cost of all ballots across the state would only be a fraction of the $3 Million Zuckerbucks received by Maricopa County, alone to “fix” the 2020 election.
“25 cents is a lot cheaper than what we just had to pay for an audit,” said Borrelli.
In yesterday’s consideration of SB1120, State Senator Borrelli read a quote from Kamala Harris’ Twitter page, where she demands paper ballots to secure elections.
The full forensic audit of Maricopa County’s 2020 election discovered over 10 different ballot paper types. We need a standardized ballot that the voter can track.
Senator Borrelli continued on the importance of ballot security, and the price of our freedom.
Borrelli: there’s a lot of disinformation out there by the media, spreading disinformation, okay. So we heard testimony in the government committee, and I heard these witnesses that were actually doing the work at the audit, counting every piece of paper. We’re talking 1500 volunteers of Maricopa County citizens irregardless of what party. They had them all mixed Republican, Democrat, Independent, green, purple, whatever it was, they had everybody, every mix, match. And all they wanted to do is the truth, but then when they’re picking up a ballot, and they’re saying, “this piece of paper, I can definitely tell is a ballot” and they’re seeing other ballots with different types, different texture of paper, they could tell it’s not on the, by law, a certain type of paper that the printer is contracted to print.
So when they see different types of paper that is not regulation. That’s going to raise suspicions and that’s going to raise a lot of concerns and people being apprehensive. So whether you want to believe it’s a counterfeit ballot or not, is irrelevant. What is relevant is this is prevention moving forward. Now, as far as the machines, once again, the printer, whoever has the contract to do this ballot will have the contract to do the same this ballot and they’re the ones who put all the calibration stuff on the side and all that stuff. They have to use a certain kind of paper right now, thickness and weight is the same thing. But this piece of paper is going to have some counterfeit countermeasures on it, that cannot be reproduced. That’s going to get a blank. So if there’s like the some of the issues, like there’s a ballot on demand for some of these precincts, because the way they got different things on the ballot, if that precinct has 1000 voters registered voters at that precinct, they should be able to account for 1000 pieces of paper.
If 900 people vote, there better be 100 pieces of paper leftover. Okay, so this is about control. Controlling your ballot, which is your currency as an American citizen. Once again, the cost, 25 cents a ballot. It should be tracked just like the currency in your pocket. 25 cents is a lot cheaper than what we just had to pay for an audit. And if we can get around at stopping this in the future, nipping it in the bud, that there’s no way anybody can counterfeit a ballot, run it over a copy machine over and over and over and then run them through, we nip that in the bud. it’s called a countermeasure.
Now I take a little bit more personal side of this. Cost? How much American blood and treasure has been spent and spilled on us going to other countries helping to spread freedom throughout the world and democracy. When I get friends that come back in in a box with a flag over them, I take that personal. I got friends that come back maimed for the rest of their life… I didn’t get sent here to make friends. I came here to serve my constituents. And served them well, all throughout the whole state. So if I see something is going to make sure that we can nip it in the bud that we never go down this path ever again, that an election is ever in question. Now’s the time to take that stance. Now’s the time. This is called prevention. We put locks on the door to keep honest people honest.
