Souls to the Polls: Why the Democrats Love Early Voting on Sunday

Craig HueyChurch, Election, Election Results3 Comments

Across America, there is an immense push among Democrats to have early voting, including Sundays.

In fact, the Sunday before the election is probably one of the most prized voting times for the Democrats.

The reason why?

A program started a few elections ago called “Souls to the Polls.”

“Souls to the Polls” is a concentrated effort at black churches to get everyone to go the poll…with cars, buses, every vehicle they can….driving as many of the church attendees as possible to the poll to vote.

The Souls to the Polls event increases voter turnout by hundreds of thousands of voters who would not have voted without it. This can change election results, especially in tight races.

In the recent Georgia Senatorial election that flipped the entire U.S. Senate to Democrat, this was one of the three tools that helped Democrats take over

  1. Organized voter registration.
  2. Organized Get-out-the-Vote campaign.
  3. Souls to the Polls.

In those targeted churches, they are also given a voter guide on who to vote for.

If same day voter registration is available, it’s time to immediately register someone there at the church.

Some states, such as California, have ballot harvesting as part of their program.

Ballot harvesting is where trained, organized, paid workers and volunteers collect voters’ ballots and take them to the polls. Sometimes one person can collect 100 or 200 ballots per day.

This makes early voting critically important.

Why? To harvest more ballots.

Evangelical churches have started doing ballot harvesting, but they are not organized, and most pastors do not mobilize like they do in the black churches.

That’s mainly because the black churches are part of the organized Democrat campaign coordinating the efforts.  

One of the problems with Sunday polls is that taxpayers’ money must be spent to staff the polling places on weekends.

That’s where the Democrats – through Facebook, non-profit organizations and taxpayers’ money in heavily Democratic counties – have financed and opened the polls on Sundays specifically to attract Souls to the Polls voters.

The stats show this works very well in getting enough additional voters out to vote for Democrats to swing tight elections.

Some states have removed the Sunday option, such as North Carolina.

The battle is on now in every state to decide either for or against Sunday voting. The Democrat party is spending millions in legal fees to file lawsuits for Sunday voting.

What does your state do?

  1. Virtual Congress
    I notice the partisan bickering going on in congress. It seems to be continuous gridlock and partisan showmanship at every turn. I began to ponder how fair and balanced it might be if our congress was a virtual body. Each state would have a computer as their representative. Wait, wait … let me explain. These secure terminals would allow tax paying voters to cast their vote for any bill on the docket. Let’s take the voting rights bill of today. This is a very partisan bill that is being disputed in congress in an ongoing battle for fair elections. If we, as voters, had a voting pin where we could access our states computer terminal we would actually have a voice. We log in, cast our vote {yay or nay}. The computer tallies the votes at a predetermined end time and those results become public. If it is a national bill then the votes from each state are tabulated together and the results likewise become public.
    Now this system has some huge benefits. We would not have congressional elections…ever. We would not have congressional salaries or pensions to deal with. One or two representatives could not use their vote for personal gain. Lobbyists would have zero leverage over the congress. The results of any vote would reflect the will of the people as a majority and not as a party loyalist. The results would be definite and final after each vote.
    This system could be monitored constantly for malware and interference from foreign or domestic terrorism. There would be a need for a representative from each state to hammer out details of each bill as proposed. There could be a forum where voters could voice concerns or changes deemed necessary for each bill invoked.
    The computers do not judge an issue on its docket. The only way to instill the will of the people into our politics is by allowing us to all have a voice. We have become too big, to advanced and generally to connected to allow bills to be passed by the whim of one representative. Likewise, a beneficial popular bill that is quashed by a representative is detrimental to everyone as well. Open your mind and just think about the possibilities of a Virtual Congress in our future.
