Are You Concerned About Election Security?

Here’s The Scoop

In Maricopa County, Arizona, a temporary election worker, Walter Ringfield, was detained by law enforcement for allegedly pilfering essential security items from a ballot tabulation center. The 27-year-old from Phoenix was captured on security footage taking a lanyard with a security fob and keys, a crucial element of the election security apparatus.

The footage reveals Ringfield approaching a desk, picking up the lanyard, and placing it in his shorts pocket. When confronted by his employer, Ringfield initially denied the theft but later suggested that the lanyard might be in his car. A subsequent search confirmed the presence of the lanyard, though the fob was still missing at that time. Detectives later found the fob during a search of Ringfield’s residence, located on a dresser in his master bedroom.

Ringfield claimed he returned the fob after about 20 minutes, asserting he was attempting to “clean up” in hopes of securing a permanent position at the Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center. However, his actions have only amplified existing concerns regarding election integrity in a county already under the microscope for tabulation equipment issues and previous election fraud claims.

Sheriff Russ Skinner applauded the swift response of the election staff and law enforcement, underscoring that these measures are integral to safeguarding democracy. Arizona Secretary of State Adrian Fontes echoed these sentiments, stating that the swift actions of the Maricopa County elections staff have reaffirmed the effectiveness of security protocols in place.

In an area rife with election integrity concerns, particularly after the contentious 2020 presidential election, this incident underscores the importance of vigilant security measures. While it’s reassuring to see the systems in place catching anomalies, it also serves as a stark reminder of the ever-present need for rigorous oversight to ensure the sanctity of our voting process.

As we approach the November presidential election, it’s imperative that all measures are taken to prevent any potential tampering. The steadfast actions of Maricopa County officials and law enforcement are crucial in maintaining trust in our democratic systems and ensuring that every vote is counted securely and accurately.

    So glad this was discovered. I hope the penalty for this action has some legal action to follow for this person and any person anywhere else that attempts to harm the public’s trust in our voting system.

      KLS,
      How, exactly did the Dems cheat? Give us some proof and if you don’t have any just keep your flawed opinions to yourself.

        Do you really think Joe Biden got 81 million votes?

        Let’s see, 300,000 votes come into a polling place and 1 vote is for president Trump. Oh, they came in after the polls closed. Democrat vote counters waited until polls closed to pull out multiple boxes of supposed votes for biden. How about the rallies? One candidate has rallies with 5,000 to,250,000 people while the other candidate can’t come up with more then 100. Oh, and those multiple hidden boxes of “votes” for biden that demoncrat counters “found”? I guess they forgot about the cameras. Was it a fair election? I guess that’s a pretty good question.

          Mike: You referred to only a few of the now-recognized methods of cheating which were used in the 2020 “Election;” which in actuality was a SELECTION by a small number of people unhindered by moral integrity. For Democrats/Leftists to say that “confidence in the electoral process” is the greatest problem is outrageously wrong. Integrity in the electoral process is what has to be corrected first; then confidence will be enabled- because we shall see the election “results” reflect the actual will of the people- that is, the genuine voters, not a small, self-appointed few people trying to subvert our entire country. When that is accomplished, we shall not again be stuck with another disastrous “winner” like the pitiful excuse of a “President” whom we saw struggling in the debate on Thursday night.

            My bumper sticker reads,: IF THE FIX IS NOT IN, TRUMP WILL WIN” and I am having some printed that read,
            “2020 TRUMP ELECTED, BIDEN SELECTED”.

        You should really stop showing your ignorance. That’s been proven in a lot of places around the country and don’t bother responding because I don’t need any more of it.

    If after all the examples of irregularities occurring during the 2020 election people still have to ask for proof, they wouldn’t see or acknowledge reality if it slapped them upside the head. I do believe the term for that is cognizant dissidence!!

      Amen! I have shown numerous items of wrongdoing to some people and they ignore it.

    Politics is violence as Tolstoy once wrote. I don’t vote as manmade political governments are evil, wicked crime. But for sure one should be wary of political elections.

    Democrats will ABSOLUTELY cheat again! If they’re ahead, they’ll say we MUST.stop counting ballots on election night. If they’re behind, they will say we need to keep counting ALL votes (until they win.). If they’re behind they will create votes. Thats why ALL vote counting should end midnight on election night PERIOD . Mail-in ballots not received by Election Day SHOULD NOT be counted. If you want to mail in, you can mail in 7 days prior to Election Day. We need to stop the practice of counting votes “until the democrats win.’
