Newsom signs Executive Order changes to voting procedures…
Governor Newsom signed the order on Friday to permit vote-by-mail procedures to be used in three special upcoming elections. The order also extended the Presidential Primary ballot counting by 21 days…
“The order also extends the deadlines for ballot counting, tabulation, and other responsibilities related to the official canvass of California’s Presidential Primary Election that could risk undermining social distancing measures, and suspends the timeframes for public hearings required by political subdivisions that are in the process of changing from an at-large method of election to district elections.”
The state of California has not officially finished counting the votes that were cast in the Presidential Primary. Even though just about every other state finishes their ballot counting right away. The deadline to confirm the vote count was set for early April, but now that deadline has been extended by Newsom’s executive order…More time to find votes? Time will tell.
We must not allow the Chinese coronavirus to distract us from keeping an eye on our politicians. While everyone must do their part to limit the spread of the virus, we must also be protective of our freedoms and liberty.
These are truly unprecedented times we are living in right now. Nothing like this has ever been experienced in our country. Not after Pearl Harbor, not even after 9/11. This is a hard shutdown of vast swaths of the economy and the pain is reverberating up and down the chain.
Millions of Californians have been told to stay in their homes. Many businesses have been forced to scale back their operations or even shut down completely. Store shelves are being emptied the minute they are restocked. People are scared, and rightfully so.
In a desperate time like this is when the most dangerous politicians will try to take advantage of the people.
Stay strong California and may God Bless America!
