June 12, 2024 - We have a plan to win in the general election.

To Potential Donors, with your help we can win!

I have calculated the probability of winning based on actual voter data and my strategy for voter outreach.

It will take money to reach out to the volume of voters that will be needed. I do not want to reveal too much of my analysis publicly (for what I hope are obvious reasons) but I am willing to go through the details with potential donors so you can decide if it is worth investing in my campaign or not.

Thank you for your consideration!

June 5, 2024 - We won!

Thanks to all of my supporters!

June 3, 2024 - How is the ballot order determined for the County Clerk?

There is a reason for it but it might not be what you think.

For the position of County Clerk, the ballot order is random and of no significance. Please see the Election Alphabet and NMAC 1.10.7.9 ORDER OF CANDIDATE NAMES

Could it be the elites who are in charge that are the threat?

May 24, 2024 - Hundreds of duplicate absentee ballots sent in Bernalillo County

So what are we to think of this?

Click on the image below to see my thoughts on the subject. We need to be careful not to jump to unjustified conclusions based on our own biasses. Investigate and let the data speak for itself. More often than not, the simplest solution that explains the data is correct.

May 1, 2024 - Looking for help with campaign signs

When "they" tear it down you put it back up.

Many years ago I used to help with campaign signs for politicians that I supported. Although they were yard signs my yard was pretty secluded so it would only reach my immediate neighbors.

Instead of placing on sign in my yard I spread signs out along my daily work commute. I selected key locations and checked the signs along my route morning and night. Whenever I saw that someone had damaged or removed the signs I was maintaining I would replace the sign on my way home from work.

I would like to employ a similar strategy with my signs. I am looking for people who are willing to help me place and keep my signs in place. Would you be willing to help?

If so, please consider volunteering using either of these two links:

April 28, 2024 - UPDATE on Random Precinct Selection Process

Human error is the most likely explanation.

As mentioned earlier, we have received copies of the precinct selection tools from the SOS for 2022 and 2023. Although the 2022 tool did not translate the random dice rolls into random precinct selections, in my opinion based on the data, it is quite obvious what happened. The precincts in the data posted by the SOS which was used in the tool were only partially sorted. There is no requirement for it to be sorted when posted.

It seems the auditor accumulated counts on the non-sorted precincts. These accumulated counts are essential to make the correct precinct selections. After that, presumably because they noticed that the precincts were not sorted correctly, they then moved each out of order precinct and its associated data to the correct location. This broke the brackets used for selecting precincts associated with many of the dice rolls.

From a practical perspective, there were too many out of order precincts to manually move by hand as described above. Most likely the method they used was to run an excel sort on the data AFTER the the counts were accumulated. Thus, the brackets were broken in many locations. At this point they could have recalculated the accumulations which would have corrected the broken brackets but they failed to do so.

This appears to be a human error and should not repeat itself with proper training. In fact, it did not happen in the 2023 audit and the 2023 tool looks fine. In my opinion, the 2023 tool worked as intended and correctly translated the random dice rolls into the corresponding random precinct selections.

April 25, 2024 - This is IMPORTANT! SECRETARY OF STATE OFFICE RELEASES AUDIT.

Thanks to NMFOG!

Technically, the SOS released the precinct selection normalization tool. I have been requesting access to this tool since June of 2023 and have been denied access until now. More importantly, the SOS now knows that we are watching them and they cannot withhold this data from us in the future.

This is a key component of the Post Election System Check as it is currently implemented. This tool converts a dice rolls into selected precincts based on voter data. As covered in my causes page, there were some issues with the randomness of the precincts selected for hand counts in the 2022 Election post elections system check. Now we should have the data we need to understand what went wrong and to hopefully ensure process changes are made to prevent this from happening again in the future.

I can't thank the NM FOG enough. They did what nobody else I approached was willing or able to accomplish. Please consider donating to them to keep this non-partisan organization which is dedicated to open government in New Mexico fully funded for future work on the behalf of all New Mexicans.

A little distraction.

In news unrelated to my campaign I just happened to be in the right place at the right time to make local news. When I said "what I saw" I meant what I saw in a document not what I saw in person. Please see my April 02, 2024 news post below for more information. Thank you!
