"So there's a lot of opportunities for that and it's so important. Now that we don't have in-person precinct tabulation. I can't tell you how important it is and don't depend on me to to be the one to go look i. It's really hard. And but i do it and but if a lot of people did it a little bit at the time it would be really great. And that's what. The league of women voters can do primarily is to be there and understand. What's happening. When i go to watch every day i find something that's not correct. It could be done better. It's not legal. Whatever it's always something and it gets corrected. Because i know how to i know how to voice. I know what's true. And i know what needs to be done and i can explain it to the official and they always appreciate that input. And that's what makes elections healthy is interaction from public officials. Elections belong to the public. They belong to the league. Women voters do not belong to the officials and officials have basically the system has changed such that officials see themselves in charge. They have a staff of people. The staff of people controls a bunch of election judges who are following rules and decisions or are escalating up to the election official. It's not the way it should be. Election judges are called judges for a reason. Judges make decisions based on the law. Not based on what somebody told them to do. So that's the law in the rules. The rules are made by secretary of state. We voters can also go read that they proposed election rules. That are coming out right now. I hope that this podcast doesn't come out after the rules are already approved. But the watching the for rulemaking and making public comment on rules is really important.

"Are back in continuing our discussion about the election, which is already underway election day of course, is November third too many people in Vermont have voted already in are continuing to do. So the ballots continue to show up by mail and by drop drop off at city and town clerks offices around Vermont and we're talking with Secretary of State Jim condos and with. Sonya Schuyler of the. Vermont League of Women Voters, and Sonya. Thanks. Not only F- finally getting together with us this morning. But also being patient, we cleared the decks on some things but one of the get a couple of into you now if I could and and one is. What is the what is the role of the League of women voters in working to to help? Facilitate election and get out the vote and so on. Well we have historically worked with Secretary of State's office in terms of making sure we have good information to get out to voters. And we are using a lot of different venues to get this message out. We put message out on facebook. On twitter on instagram. And we've also had some newspaper advertisements. We realized that different age groups. Tend to go to different media. and. So we're trying to use all the media. We can including your wonderful invitation to your show to get the message out to people about voting how to do it We were concerned that there were people who still didn't understand how to use the. absentee ballots for the primary and so we're. Going again to explain to people how to. Fill out ballot and get it in the right envelopes for the general election. and. What kinds of concerns are you hearing from voters of people coming to you and just talking about the any any worries that they have about the way this is happening. Well, we do here people who are still concerned about the security of the ballot and I know. Secretary kind of has gone through the ballot casting. Process for your listeners and also I, think it might be helpful if he could. Talk a little more about some of the other things that the. Secretary of State's office has in place. To guard against. Scamming and other kinds of. Electronic attacks on our voting process. Well let is nice opening for secretary condos Jim. I'm wondering how would you answer that question from Chinese scholar of the League women voters was SORTA security measures are in place to give voters I that confidence you want them to have. So first of all I. Think Sonya. Thanks for thanks for being on today and thanks for the League of women, voters, and all they're doing to help us with with the election. We really appreciate it. Anything that gets more involved than engage in our democratic processes is important to us as well as to our democracy But I think that really kind of a coup fold question one, I think first of all. We are extremely confident that that no one could get into our systems and change any boats anywhere. First of all vote tabulated are not connected to the Internet by either WIFI hard. Wire. Remote access the they're just not connected. They're standalone units Clerks and get that information off the off the. Computer on the on the scanner and and submit that to our office, our offices election. AP Systems actually all of our offices it system are not just elections are pretty much in a strong lockdown position. We have several layers of firewalls. Have a weekly cyber hygiene scandalous conducted by the Department of Homeland. Security. we contract with a company to monitor any. Access to. Anybody any. Attempts. To access, we actually monitor it as well we also have what we call Collie Albert Monitor. Provided by the Center for Internet Security which tracks all incoming traffic. Our system. And sends it back to their. Location where they can Were they can. look. For any potential information that our? It addresses trying to get in. We do a daily backup of our voter registration system so that Should something happen? You know you always have to plan for the worst will weep land that someone might actually be fortunate enough to access our system, and if they tried to destroy the voter registration system, they would not be able to because we have it backed up. With. Every day the also the ultimate is we have same day voter registration. So even if if something did happen and someone walked into the Gore at the polling location and the polls say you're not registered. They can register on the spot and and go ahead invoked. So we have a lot of those things in place and as far as the out the mail in ballots to the of out we we know where what addresses they went to the know whose name was on that that address The each envelope within the envelope that was mailed out. The certificate envelope on one side the person fills it out under penalty of perjury which. Is, pretty, significant jail time, and and find on the other side. There's A. a name the name of the person that the ballot was sent to. It was also their voter ID this number that's in our system A Bar Code to assist lurching processing basket. So and then when. The clerk goes to enter that ballot into the system. They check off that voter and that voter then will not be allowed to vote in another location in Vermont because it system will will pop up and say. To the clerk, this person already voted. So or in the same goes if they try to register in another town, it'll say this person has registered in town a and. news verified before we can allow them to move forward with this new registration address. We also have automatic rectory. Where we get a daily update. From the Department of motor vehicles of any address changes and he new new. Licensees that come in and if they didn't opt out, they will automatically registered to vote and otherwise we will automatically change their.

"Which I did and admit his testimony, I think was quite influential. And persuading the Congress they should exempt Ah 1960 presidential election from the whole time Law, which loved of the Kennedy Nixon debate, we've pulled together some moments from past debates, including that very first debate that took place September 26th 1960. I want to play an excerpt of what then Senator Kennedy responded to the issue of his experience, and then listen carefully to the end. Of how then Vice President Richard Nixon responded. I come out of the Democratic Party, which in this century has produced Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman and which supported and sustained these programs, which I've discussed tonight. Connection comes out of the Republican Party. He was nominated by it, and it is a fact that through most of these last 25 years, Republican leadership has opposed federal aid for education, medical care for the agent development of the Tennessee Valley. Development of our natural resources. I think Mr Nixon is an effective leader of his party. I hoped he would grant me the same question before us is Which point of view. And which party? Do we want to leave the United States? Mr. Nixon? Would you like to comment on that statement? I have come. That from the first of four presidential debates in 1960, Newton, you know you've heard that before, But what was your reaction? Well, I know Jack Kennedy before the debate. So I was not surprised that he demonstrated in the debate the majority, uh, judgments of presence, the character of the personality that he showed I think the country of course, didn't know Jack Kennedy and I think that he introduced himself. To the voters in a way that they have not thought of him before. So that was very important. And of course, there was a 16 year gap between the Kennedy Nixon debates and the Ford Carter debates in 1976, a looming reason, of course, President Lyndon Baines Johnson and Richard M. Nixon. So what's the back story? Well, unlike 1960, when Congress exempted ah, the debase from the equal time law The then president, President child son of the President Nixon didn't want to debate so they simply passed word or Congress that they should not change the law. 1976 The Federal Communications Commission without a new law by Congress reinterpreted the Federal Communications Act. Exemption from the Equal Time Law, which exempted news programs. And the Federal Communications Commission decided to exempt debates as being a news programme that led the league women voters to conduct the debate. And Ah ah to my they asked me to Help him organize it because they had asked the man who organized the 1960 debate, Frank Stanton. Who was the head of CBS to do it, but he couldn't do it because he was still involved in broadcasting. This had to be a a nonprofit AA sponsor. He recommended me. And I was surprised because when I inquired and getting President Johnson and then Governor Carter to whether they were willing to debate Most of them were willing, and that's how we organized it and you outline that in Chapter three of your book. At that point, President Gerald Ford, America's only appointed president was down more than 30 points in the polls. Although the gap did narrow until this moment, October 6th 1976 let's listen. There is no Soviet domination of Eastern Europe and there never will be under a Ford administration. I'm sorry. Could I just did I understand you to say, sir, that the Russians are not using Eastern Europe as their own sphere of influence and occupying most of the countries there and making sure with their troops that it's that it's a Communist zone, whereas on our side of the line's Italians and the French are so flirting, I don't believe Mr Frankel, the Yugoslavians consider themselves dominated by the Soviet Union. I don't believe that the Romanians Consider themselves dominated by the Soviet Union. I don't believe that the polls consider themselves dominated by the Soviet Union. Each of those countries is independent autonomous. It has its own territorial integrity, and the United States does not conceive that those countries are under the domination of the Soviet Union. That from October of 1976. And as you remember the Ford campaign, initially doubling down on that before, finally admitting that the president had made a mistake. Why was that such a critical moment in that race? And how did it take the outcome? I was there after debate in the hall and believe it, believe it or not, it went right by me. I didn't say it wasn't conscious of some major mistake the press treated it is a major mistake and the media did. I understand. Understood what President Ford was saying, and I think he was wrong, but I don't. I don't think that the what he said, has that much effect on the election. Because, as he pointed out to you in a conversation with me later, he was 32 points behind when they debate started, And at the time of the election, he almost won 12. Years later, there was another moment in another debate with then Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis and Vice President George H. W. Bush and this question from Bernie Shaw of CNN. The first question goes to governor to Congress. You have two minutes to respond. Governor if.

"In two thousand eighteen Floridians voted in favor of restoring the right to vote for millions of formerly incarcerated felons, but by mid twenty nineteen Republican Governor Rick Desanta S- and the Republican led state legislature passed a law, prohibiting former felons from voting until they paid off any outstanding fines and fees connected to their case, a confusing payment system combined with the financial hardships that many face meant that the majority of felons in Florida wouldn't be able to pay these fines and would never have their voting rights restored. Last month, however, a federal judge ruled that law unconstitutional, and in violation of the twenty fourth amendment, calling it a quote pay to vote system Sean. Morales Doyle is a senior counsel in the Democracy Program at the Brennan Center for Justice, and he was one of the attorneys representing the plaintiffs in the trial, challenging the law, the Twenty Fourth Amendment, which prohibited poll taxes actually said you can't make boating contingent on pink, a poll tax or other tax, the folks the wrote the twenty four. Th Manu that maybe states would try to be creative about how they would could a price tag on boating, and that's what Florida did so this wasn't exactly A. A poll tax, but it was requiring people to pay taxes to vote, and the judge said that violates the twenty fourth amendment according to Sean about nearly eight hundred thousand people formerly charged with felonies in Florida will now get their voting rights restored in terms of race. This policy of disenfranchisement in Florida and across the country disproportionately impacts people color in Florida. The impact on the radio was really stunning prior to the passage amendment for it was decimated that one out of every five black voting age adults in Florida was disenfranchised result of a conviction in their past the data that our expert got together showed that not only is. December enticements something. Something, that disproportionately impacts lack Floridians, but that this requirement hang devote disproportionately impacts them that the vast majority of people who have conviction oh some money, because the Florida criminals justice system just keeps debt on people, but black flea are more likely to own money and more likely to Oh more money than their white counterparts, but the majority of people with felony convictions in Florida are white. It has a population that is disproportionately black, compared to the general population, but actually the majority of people felony convictions Florida are white, and so it's also important to think about this, not in terms of race, but in as you point out in terms of income. Income in terms of wealth and the claim that we want on back in the fall in that we want again on after this trial, one of the claims was this is unconstitutional wealth discrimination, obviously people who go through the criminal justice system the economic realities that they'd face are pretty dire. It's hard to get a job and most of them go into the criminal justice system already in a bad spot when it comes to money well so I'm curious whether the judge acknowledged that disparity, the racial and economic disparities in his decision and we're talking about judge Robert Hinkle here. Who decided the case whose at the US District Court in Tallahassee? Yes. He did acknowledge one of our claims was that this is actually a form of price discrimination and the judge held that this law wasn't passed with the intent to discriminate against Black Floridians, although he said that was a close call, but in ruling on that claim, he acknowledged the disproportionate impact that has on black. And of course ruling on the wealth, discrimination can be made very clear that he thinks that it's unconstitutional to deny someone the right to vote because they're going to afford it, and he has acknowledged this disparity in the past as well it is. There's no doubt that Florida's legislature in new. When they passed this law that they were passing a law that was gonNA. Disproportionately impact Black Floridians that was made clear to them. Our Client League women voters the end of Lacey Pe- in many many others were sounding the alarm about the impact. This would have on the black community in Florida and they went ahead and passed away knowing the impact that it would have. and. The judge said it was a close call whether they did that intentionally to discriminate against Black Floridians ultimately decided that it wasn't that we hadn't proven that it was intentional, but there's no doubt that everyone knew and the impact that it was going to happen that it has in fact headed. Sean given the fact that this has gone back and forth and the community that we're talking about here is probably gotten a lot of mixed messages, and now, of course we're dealing with a global pandemic, which is affecting among other things, our ability to get out to the polls into vote. How are former felons who now have the ability to vote? What is it that they can do to make sure that they're taking advantage of that opportunity given the coronavirus crisis that we're facing right now among other things. It's great question Florida. Thankfully in some respects, Florida elections are more prepared for this pandemic than some other states. Florida already allows anybody to vote by mail and Florida. Already has a system of unlike registration. So folks can start getting registered now. They can do it from home. And they can vote from home as well and so. Hopefully in that respect, Florida's made this a little bit easier on people to your point, it really has been shameful. How the state in addition to passing this law that doesn't franchise so many people also just made it impossible for people to know whether they were eligible or not it just. Failed to provide any guidance whatsoever, and as the judge described it. This was an administrative trainwreck this loan. They didn't just put a price tag on voting. They made it so people can't even figure out what the price is in. Florida is impossible to figure out what you and so the judge's opinion. I would say he did, too. One of them was make sure that everyone got their rights restored, but just as important was that he provided a way for people to know whether they're eligible and to get registered. And he gave clarity people and said that these financial obligations don't count against you. If you're unable to afford them, you can get registered now. Now and if you don't know what you owe, in can't figure out whether unable to afford them. He provided a process for asking the state for an opinion on that. And if you don't get an answering through, you can get registered, so he's cleared the way for people to start getting registered, and thankfully Florida's got the mechanisms in place for people to. To do that and to get boating without having to risk their health, Sean. I want to ask you before as we're wrapping up here one ask you a little bit about the likelihood that this population will vote, and if they do turn out to vote, you mentioned the former felon population. Florida is up in the hundreds of thousands of people who've now essentially been given the green light to vote. How likely is it that this population will vote in two thousand twenty, and if they do turn out to the polls? What effect could that have given that Florida? As.
