From Georgia here. An elderly, unauditable electronic voting system whose very design and location suggest it was meant to be tampered with are only part of the wholesale smashing that goes on here, of course. A win by Brian Kemp, who as secretary of state used voter registration to disenfranchise up to 800,000 voters (500,000 in one move), and was overseeing the vote count for his own candidacy, would be proof that he succeeded in stealing the election.

House Democrats already have a giant democracy reform bill to be launched first thing. It has many aspects, each with long lists, but among them are easy, way overdue reforms we can understand very well -- like automatic national voter registration. Once. For all of us. As likely to be "lost" or cancelled as our IRS accounts and Social Security numbers.

What is the ultimate goal after the culprits who intentionally engineered the breakdown of voting, the basis for democratic societies, are successful? What sort of country are they trying to create?

You cannot have a secret ballot and a verifiable election using electronics.
This is not a matter of opinion; it is a matter of fact, physics and mathematics.
