Cutting into Nevada’s Election Fraud Knot, (Pt. 8 of 8)


Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg’s Chicago-based nonprofit Center for Tech and Civic Life delivered grants to election offices in more than 2,500 jurisdictions across the country, including in Nevada, with both Washoe and Clark Counties receiving funds. Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, gave $250 million to the group with another $100 million heading to the Center for Election Innovation & Research to be distributed to Secretaries of State across the country.

The city of North Las Vegas, Nevada used 10 vote centers in their 2017 city elections instead of 20 polling locations and estimates a savings of approximately $55,000.

In March, Congress allocated $400 million for states and local governments to use for their elections. After Congress didn’t provide a second round of funding, Zuckerberg stepped up to funnel money through the Center for Tech and Civic Life to help with election administration.

In 2016, David Becker founded The Center for Election Innovation & Research (CEIR) stating that the center helps states: maintain accurate and complete voter lists and secure election technology infrastructure.

The Nevada offices for CEIR is registered under CT Corporate System, 701 South Carson Street, Ste# 200, Carson City, Nevada 89701. Its file number is E0212062017-5, which was filed on May 1, 2017.

It is a short walk from CIER’s offices to Secretary of State Barbara Cegasvke’s office. And while CIER’s website claims to have appropriated money’s to both Washoe and Clark, Nevada’s two most populated counties, a financial trail has yet to be properly established.

Becker claimed that the problems facing Nevada were primarily administrative, not technical. He said one of the biggest challenges was the training of volunteers who have no experience running elections.

In 2008, Becker became the director of election initiatives at Pew Charitable Trusts. There, Becker started the Electronic Registration and Information Center (ERIC), voter registration, and sharing system between 30 states, including Nevada, in which he claimed to have helped correct 4 million voter registrations and registered millions of new voters.

Becker also said one way to mitigate problems for the majority of voters would be to concentrate efforts to train caucus organizers in Clark County because the vast majority of votes in the state are cast there. It’s in Clark County, where the majority of fraudulent election incidents are alleged to have taken place.
