√ Advocate for Election Integrity since 2018 using analytical tools, investigative strategies, grassroots activism and when necessary, litigation, to strengthen our election systems.
√ Proven Policy Advocate, testifying in Hartford four times in 2021, offering recommendations and alternatives to a variety of election laws such as early voting, no-excuse absentee ballot voting, poll books, registering 16 year old’s to vote and much more.
√ Respected Expert, as a guest of the Rhode Island Legislature, he provided testimony regarding Driver Licenses for non-US citizens supporting the recommendation of labeling IDs from the DMV with the designation FN (Foreign National). He argued that this saves our immigrant from inadvertently registering to vote and voting in elections, a class D felony that causes them to forfeit their path to citizenship.
√ Technology Savvy, establishing a database of Connecticut voters for the essential purpose of researching patterns and anomalies in the voting process. This information is utilized to help election professionals identify problems with their data and to raise awareness of potential red flags. ‘To trust our elections we must trust our data.’
√ Making a difference, cleaning the Voter Rolls. Researched and created awareness that Connecticut has nearly 400K names on the voting lists that beg for removal. Up to 197K inactive voters that have not voted in 4 to 9 years and nearly 200K undeliverable voters exposed during the unsolicited mailing of absentee ballot applications in 2020. In fact, he forced (via Twitter) SOTS to only mail applications to Active voters and Connecticut still had an 8% failed delivery rate.
√ Legal Advocacy – When the Hartford Elites proposed to change election laws in April 2020, he led the fight to ensure the integrity of our Constitution and our elections. With a grassroots effort we launched the lawsuit Rapini vs Merrill which evolved into Fay vs Merrill. While we lost the lawsuit in Connecticut Supreme Court, we raised enough visibility to force a special session for lawmakers to at least vote on the issue providing some semblance of legality.
√ Election Integrity Experience:
- Election Day Registrations – demonstrated that nearly 6,000 people voted on 11/3/2020 that were not registered to vote.
- Double Voters – Identified 103 Connecticut voters that show as voting twice 2020. Currently under investigation.
- Underage Voters – apparently a small number of young people voted in 2020 before their 18th birthday. This was easily found in the Connecticut voter rolls.
- Wasted Taxpayer Dollars – National Op-Ed on the $7M in wasted tax payer dollars spent by Denise Merrill in 2020.
- Zuckerbucks – Built a research team to understand how 60 Connecticut towns applied for and accepted private money for elections without any clear guidance from Hartford.
