Voters concerned about election fraud are increasing the pressure on public officials to take additional steps during elections this year to provide additional security, including counting ballots by hand instead of using electronic voting machines for tabulation. Arizona Corporation Commissioner Jim O’Connor sent all Arizona county election officials and sheriffs a letter on August 30 urging the change, and now grassroots organizations are following up with their own campaign.
The Save My Freedom movement, headed by Arizona activist Michele Swinick, is working in conjunction with ACT for America, the organization run by Brigitte Gabriel, to further the effort. During an episode of Swinick’s podcast The Everything Home Talk Show on Sunday, she discussed the joint effort with ACT for America’s National Grassroots Director Christine Reagan and O’Connor.
The campaign is launching in all eight battleground states on Thursday. Swinick, who has a background in digital marketing, told The Arizona Sun Times, “It takes less than two minutes a day to take back America with this one-click email campaign.” The campaign is on the ACT for America website, and includes options to email the 120 Arizona officials O’Connor targeted, customize the message, share it on social media, sign the petition, and call the officials. She requests that voters repeat the process every day.
Reagan said during the podcast, “If the country of France can move to a 100-percent paper ballot election, with over 49 million people registered to vote in that country, I think Arizona can figure it out county by county.”
