SacCountyGOP’s Election Integrity Program
Under the leadership of our EIO Nina Caron, close to 100 Republicans were direct participants in the following roles:
- Paid workers inside County elections, processing ballots, and adjudicating damaged or mismarked ballots to determine voter intent
- Paid workers to close Drop Boxes on Election Night and deliver ballots to County Elections
- Paid workers in Vote Centers where in person voting took place
- Volunteer Vote Center Observers
- Volunteer Drop Box Closure Observers
- Volunteer Observers as equipment and systems were tested at County Elections
- Volunteer Observers as ballots were received and processed at County Elections
- Attorneys and County Chair Mahan were in constant communication with the Election Office to solve issues in real time.
All observers filed reports with SacCountyGOP and those findings will be shared with the County Elections Office to communicate what went right and wrong during the voting process.
Nina Caron, Election Integrity Officer
Nina Caron has been appointed as SacCountyGOP’s Election Integrity Officer, and she’s working with other counties and the CAGOP to share best practices to secure the election.
The best way to make sure our ballots are safe is to have our people on the inside counting ballots and observing the process, so Nina recruits Republicans to work the elections (staffing Vote Centers, counting ballots, monitoring duplication and other manual processes), and she’s training Republicans to be Election Observers in Vote Centers. Nina also joins with SacCountyGOP Chair Betsy Mahan as an active participant on the Sacramento County Elections Community Advisory Committee.

Senators are considering hiring a California-based nonprofit to analyze ballot images to create a third set of numbers to compare with the tabulation from Dominion Voting Systems machines and the hand recount being done by Cyber Ninjas, a Florida-based firm in charge of the current audit.
If the plan is finalized, the Senate would pay $5,000. The rest of the money would be obtained through a grant or through private funding, Ken Bennett, the former Republican secretary of state who is the Arizona Senate’s liaison for the audit, told The Epoch Times.
When Fulton County, Georgia, poll manager Suzi Voyles sorted through a large stack of mail-in ballots last November, she noticed an alarmingly odd pattern of uniformity in the markings for Joseph R. Biden. One after another, the absentee votes contained perfectly filled-in ovals for Biden—except that each of the darkened bubbles featured an identical white void inside them in the shape of a tiny crescent, indicating they’d been marked with toner ink instead of a pen or pencil.
Adding to suspicions, she noticed that all of the ballots were printed on different stock paper than the others she handled as part of a statewide hand recount of the razor-thin Nov. 3 presidential election. And none was folded or creased, as she typically observed in mail-in ballots that had been removed from envelopes.

A judge in Georgia told parties in an election integrity case on May 27 that a previously scheduled meeting at a ballot storage warehouse was canceled after officials filed a flurry of motions in the case.
Henry County Superior Court Judge Brian Amero said a May 28 meeting was no longer taking place because of motions filed by Fulton County, the county’s Board of Registration and Elections, and the county’s clerk of Superior and Magistrate Courts, a spokesperson for the court confirmed to The Epoch Times.
Amero said the motions must be heard before the plaintiffs can gain access to the absentee ballots. He proposed a June 21 hearing, but the order scheduling the hearing hasn’t yet been filed.

Wisconsin state Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says he’s hiring retired police officers to probe aspects of the 2020 presidential election, joining efforts in Republican-led states to look into the contest.
Vos, a Republican, told local news outlets that he will hire three retired officers to work with an Assembly committee that has investigatory powers to review the election. Vos said there were thousands of complaints made after the Nov. 3 contest in Wisconsin—which was narrowly won by President Joe Biden—that need to be investigated.
“We need to have a fact basis to continue to show the public in Wisconsin that, number one, we continue to take these irregularities seriously, and that at the end of the day, the laws that we proposed are based on facts in addition to anecdotes,” Vos told the Wisconsin State Journal, adding that he believes Biden won the election but pointed to “irregularities” in how it was carried out.
