    I think, by and large, they are dedicated to the task. I am criticizing the system. In the case of Ohio, the Secretary of State has engaged in blatantly illegal acts aimed at reducing accessibility to the polls and cooking the count. But nationally, there are a multiple cases of "who could have known?" being used as the excuse for all the shortcomings being seen (AZ is just one example.) There is much too much room for mischief on the state and local levels.

    The fact that your count is short-staffed falls into that category. That's not your fault. The fact that some voting machine(s) in Ohio were found to be miscounting is not your fault. The fact that Husted made up the rules for provisionals as he went along is not your fault.

    All those could eventually be brought under control if the states had to adhere to enforceable requirements. Purposeful lack of planning, lack of staffing, and lack of funding should be actionable by the DOJ.
