Allegation: Election Fraud

Synopsis: Jim Hoft alleged in The Gateway Pundit article that the documented 66.2% of voter turnout is evidence that 13 million duplicate or fraudulent votes were counted for presumed president-elect Joe Biden.

Conclusion: Unsupported. The 66.2% voter turnout is not based on registered voters. It is a comparison of how many ballots were counted and the previously estimated Voting Eligible Population.

Case Study:

Upon review of Hoft’s sources, I learned the 66.2% voter turnout rate is not based on ‘registered voters.’ It is based on actual estimated number of ballots counted vs. Voting Eligible Population (VEP). The VEP is calculated based on the in-country estimated population of voting age reduced by percent of estimated non-citizens, less ineligible felons, plus overseas eligible voters. The VEP is a fair boundary forecast for potential election registrations as well as a comparison of the previously estimated potential registrations vs. the actual outcome, but is not in any way tethered to actual voter registrations. Because of this, 66.2% does not even rise to the level of bad evidence and becomes pure garbage value for fraud detection purposes. With 158,240,239 ballots and 213,799,467 registered voters, the registered voter turnout appears to be 74%. However, this is working backwards from the ballot count conclusion, which is itself in debate.

The argument can be stated thus: “More ballots were cast than the number of registered voters that voted.”

However, it appears historically the number of registered voters that cast their ballots was abbreviated to number of ballots counted. If each precinct ensures that every ballot corresponds to a single registered voter, and that no more than one ballot is counted for that registered voter, then ideally the number of counted ballots corresponds to the number of eligible voters that voted. It becomes a trusted value.

The corollary is also true; that if a precinct simply counts all ballots received without appropriate safeguards, then the total number of counted ballots can bear no direct relation to the number of legal ballots received. This is due to additional variables such as duplicate or otherwise fraudulent ballots potentially being introduced. This point is the bulk of external debate.

As of this writing, I have found no data set recording the number of actual registered voters which were documented having cast a ballot. This may be due to voter privacy protections or lack of due diligence.

It is possible the documented VEP could be reduced by a significant enough number of ineligible ballots to put it below the threshold of cast ballots, which (due to VEP’s inaccuracy) would only indicate a probability that fraudulent ballots were cast. However, since VEP is based on population estimates, this introduces extraneous variables such as unexpected population increases or decreases in the makeup of VEP’s composite formula, which given the absence of hardened data, can wildly influence the result in either direction rendering it an unreliable base for any form of fraud detection.

Note: This is a draft version of the casefile. However, I stand by the conclusion as a result of the best evidence I have recovered as of this writing. I am reposting one day later than the initial release, due to site development changes..

 

Pages vs. Posts

If you’re new to WordPress you may be wondering what’s the big deal behind Pages and Posts. At first glance they appear to be one and the same: if you were to create either a new page or a new post you’d be presented with nearly identical interfaces and in many cases the public appearance of pages and posts will look the same.

Don’t let this fool you. There’s a very fundamental difference between the two and that difference is what makes CMSs, like WordPress, great platforms for integrating blogs with traditional websites.

Pages

Think about the kind of pages that make up a typical website. Most often you’ll see pages like “Home”, “About Us”, “Services”, “Contact Us”, etc. Within WordPress these are often treated as Pages; documents that have no particular regard for the time they were posted.

For example, when you visit the “About Us” page of your favorite company’s website you don’t expect the content to be very different from what was available there a week ago.

Categories and Tags

If you write about a variety of subjects, categories can help your readers find the posts that are most relevant to them. For instance, if you run a consulting business, you may want some of your posts to reflect work you’ve done with previous clients, while having other posts act as informational resources. In this particular case, you can set up 2 categories: one labeled Projects and another labeled Resources. You’d then place your posts in their respective categories.

Plan Your Content

If you’re considering adding a blog to your site, you’ll want to have a plan beforehand. Planning your blog will help your subject matter remain consistent over time. It’ll also help you determine whether or not there’s enough material to maintain a steady stream of posts.

One pitfall many new bloggers run into is starting a blog that isn’t posted to frequently enough. A shortage of recent posts can give your visitors a bad impression of your business. One may think “I wonder if they’re still in business” or “they may want to hire a writer.”

A blog, like any other customer facing aspect of your business, communicates your brand. If it isn’t maintained and given proper attention, people will notice. Post regularly and keep your content fresh. Give your audience a reason to visit often.
