Election Code Loopholes Hurt Candidates: And Help Harvesters

Posted by |

Imagine you are a candidate for office.  The votes are in and you are just 50 votes short of victory.  Your race was fiercely competitive and you suspect fraud in the results.  You requested a recount already, it came out with the same results.  If there is fraud, it must be in the mail-in ballots.  What do you do?

Contesting an election is costly and time consuming so a candidate needs all the information possible to determine if he or she should proceed.  One of the first things a candidate will want to see are the mail in ballots and applications.  (For reasoning behind this: The Fort Worth Way)  This sounds like a reasonable request, right?  Not so fast.  There are a few pieces of the Election Code blocking the way.

UPDATE: District Attorney Sharen Wilson and I just spoke. She was not aware of what her staff had done. I’ve been promised the data for $1.

For example we started this journey looking into the TRWD race, which had 6,000 mail in ballots. I received all of them for $1.

This week I ordered the same thing I have in the past, except for the republican primary election in House District 99. This race had only 1,267 mail in ballots.
