There are many Medium political writers. But very few of them have been on the inside of a political party or been involved with the actual counting of votes. Their inexperience in the inner workings of democracy is obvious to those of us who have been on the inside.
What happens in the voting stations has been refined over the years to the point where it is difficult to cheat on a massive scale. The high level Republicans know this. But it's still good they send the low level workers as watchers.
But some cheating still happens. I will have an article on that topic in the next day or two.
Anyways, this is a useful article. Our collective knowledge of civics is extremely low. Even from the leftees.
