OUR STORY
2021: The Fairfax GOP Election Integrity Working Group started at a kitchen-table meeting held after the November 2020 election by a small team of volunteers who had observed operations at the Fairfax County Central Absentee Precinct.  In February 2021 the Fairfax GOP Executive Committee authorized the team as a working group.
  • We  began investigating voter roll maintenance and documenting processes used in the 2020 election.
  • We greatly expanded county-wide Poll Watcher operations for the 2021 Governor’s race and recruited more Election Officers.
  • We exposed a decision by the 2021 Registrar, Scott Konopasek, not to require the final four Social Security numbers on absentee ballot applications, a voter integrity measure which was  required by law. A lawsuit against Fairfax County was filed by the Public Interest Law Foundation to require the county to comply with the law, later dismissed for lack of standing. However, in April 2022, the new Fairfax Registrar Eric Spicer began requiring the Social Security Number on all absentee ballot applications, restoring an important tool to verify the absentee ballot applicant’s identity.

 

2022: In 2022 under Republican Governor Youngkin and Attorney General Miyares,  a new Department of Elections Commissioner and a new Fairfax General Registrar, support for election integrity efforts improved.

 

  • In the 2022 election, over 700 Republican Election Officers served across Fairfax’s 264 precincts on Election Day, including Republican Chiefs in every precinct.
  • Over 400 Poll Watchers worked as observers and reporters, gathering chain of custody information in polling places for Early Voting and Election Day, the Central Absentee Precinct, the Hand Counts pre-processing, Logic and Accuracy Testing of equipment, voting materials drop-off locations, final tabulations, Canvassing and Provisional Ballot adjudication.
  • The Chain of Custody team scanned over 70,000 undeliverable mailings for comparison to voter registration and voter history lists, as well as thousands of images of other election documents.
  • The Data Analysis Team submitted lists of selected registration records for further investigation.
  • Through Freedom of Information Requests, the Legislative Research team collected all Virginia Department of  Elections administrative Guidances from 2018 to the present day, which will shortly be made available online (and regularly updated) for all voters at EPEC.info. They also worked closely with statewide coalitions in the 2023 Legislative Assembly session to block bills that would damage election integrity.
  • The Equipment Research team submitted a whitepaper on the potential risks of the KNOWiNK Poll pads to the State Board of Elections and a whitepaper on the CCP-associated Konnech software program to the Fairfax County Electoral Board in September 2022. The Fairfax County Office of Elections stopped using the Konnech application a month later, followed by other Virginia counties.

2023:

  • March 21 – the FairfaxGOP Membership passed a resolution to oppose ranked-choice voting.  View additional information on ranked-choice voting HERE and HERE. (More 2023 updates to be added shortly).
