Apologies is this was posted. This thread started on Twitter.... (im so busy, prob behind) It bears reposting anyway.

BREAKING: We found 1000s of Trump supporters taking over local GOP positions — an unprecedented grassroots groundswell devoted to Trump’s insistence that the 2020 election was stolen & Republicans need to stop that from happening again

Most voters aren’t familiar with these precinct positions. But they have power over how elections are run: poll workers, board appointments, pressure on GOP officials. https://t.co/NmLDycVMwq

But it wasn’t just people mouthing off online. People actually went out and got elected or appointed to precinct positions — thousands of them. As one county chair said, “Those podcasts actually paid off.” https://t.co/Eo7W2nmOJu

There are hundreds of thousands of these precinct positions, and they aren’t centrally tracked. It took a ton of work to track them down. Here’s how we did it...
We focused on politically competitive states. We looked for signs of activity in far-right media. Then we contacted 100s of party officials & activists to find out how many new people were showing up. All-star team @DougBockClark @AlexandraBerzon @AnjeanetteDamon @mrsimon22

We found an increase of 8,500+ new local GOP officials in 41 key counties. Key states such as AZ, NV, NC, SC, GA, FL, TX, PA, WI, MI.

See details...
