Laura Pressley discusses Election Challenge

"Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong."
1 Corinthians 16:13

Tres Amigos Restaurant -- Last Sunday, Laura Pressley held a public event to explain the details of her challenge to last December's election "results."  There were several strange elements about the results.  Pressley's event below:


  • Never printed out nightly election results.
  • More ballots than voters in every precinct.
  • Over 100 votes that shouldn't be there.
  • Recount was "really interesting."
    • Couldn't print ballots.
    • Disconnect between mail-in (ie. Paper) and electronic ballots.
  • Polling locations were closed.
  • Checks and balances that were designed to be there weren't followed.
  • State requires a NON-TRAVIS COUNTY JUDGE!!!
    • Author's note: Cue happy dance.
Bottom Line: By itself, the fact that the mail-in ballots came out exactly even while there was a 2 to 1 difference in the electronic totals, STINKS.  Even if the election stands, this will help clean up Travis County elections in the Future.  Kudos to Laura for taking up this fight....
