Last summer I spent hundreds of hours meeting the voters of Danvers, Peabody, and Middleton by walking through neighborhoods and knocking on doors. “Walk book” maps were created based on the voter rolls of these communities, making efficient use of my time because I would know beforehand how many voters resided at that location, their ages, and party affiliation.
Using this tool, I found that about one in every twenty homes I visited had someone registered to vote there that had either moved or passed away. Each of these people were on last year’s list for mail-in ballot requests, and thousands of ballots across the state were mailed to them.
Unfortunately, simple questions like “Is the voter signature on the mail-in ballot request matched to the one of file?” and “How much does the mail-in voter program cost to run?” have gone unanswered by Secretary of State Galvin’s office, eroding confidence and trust in this system that our state Legislature is pushing to extend and make permanent.
If you are as concerned as I am about integrity in our elections, please consider getting involved to help get more conservative Republicans elected in Massachusetts. We have many volunteer opportunities - sign holding, distributing campaign literature, making calls, and hosting "coffee hours" to name just a few.
We are actively working to build the Republican committee in Peabody - please reach out to me if you'd like to be a part.
