Voter ID is killing it right now

Not many things can enjoy near-universal support over multiple election cycles – but new polling continues to show our favorite election integrity tool can go the distance. New numbers from Gallup note 80% overall support for the concept. How did it get that popular? Simple -- it transcends racial divisions that many vote-fraud deniers love to use to split this country. Roughly 77 percent of “nonwhite” voters offer their support.

But aren’t the courts going to have more to say about voter ID? Not exactly. Excepting North Carolina’s ongoing case, professional plaintiffs have set out to uproot voter ID laws entirely in places like Texas, South Carolina, North Dakota, Wisconsin and Oklahoma – only to settle for little more than a stalemate (at best) -- where additional forms of ID are to be accepted under temporary court orders. Think about that: your Department of Justice has spent millions of dollars to work against you, telling courts that minorities are “less sophisticated” when it comes to following rules like voter ID. Keep the pressure on folks … this war is almost won.

We’ve streamlined the request process with a form now available on the website, here. We can’t wait to attend your next event!

An update on the TTV Knowledge Network

Can you have too much of a good thing? Well, yes, evidently we can. Over the past two weeks, our Knowledge Network has seen a record influx of interest and new accounts that have overloaded our system. It’s not a bad problem to have, but it’s annoying all the same. You might have seen this issue when trying to set up a new account or log into your existing one. Don’t worry, all information is safe. We just want to assure you we’re working overtime to accommodate all the new faces. Once all upscaling work is complete in the days ahead, we’ll send an announcement via email. If you would like to be updated as soon as that happens, you can click here.

Sign up for the August 30th  National Webinar TODAY

Did you know the Democrat Party has a court-ordered block on the Republican Party when it comes to performing “ballot security” operations? This is nothing new, but every election year we must remind ourselves of what we can and cannot expect from political leaders in terms of safeguarding and improving election integrity.  And, realistically, we can’t expect much! We are the difference-makers. Join us on Tuesday, August 30 at 7pm Eastern to learn more about how you can fill the gaps. Register for the webinar here.

Did you know? PEW Research highlighted a study that detailed the total amount it would cost to collect ALL voter files in the country. True the Vote’s national voter roll research databank costs $126,482 -- just for the raw data! If you haven’t yet, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to help underwrite our research efforts.
