If Trump paid $3 million for the recount, the Trump team should get to do it anyway they want!

Might drive you crazy that the Biden tabulators are making $30 an hour from this. There’s no reason for them to act the way described in this post

Patriots would count ballots for free I bet

Yes Trump observers objecting to ballots are volunteers

They already stopped new Trump observers from entering about an hour ago.

Before then there was a LONG LINE outside of volunteers wanting to register.

I'd volunteer my time and money if it was a sure thing to get GEOTUS his second term

How is the distribution of tabulators structured? Like for a box of ballots, it goes by one Biden tabulator and one Trump tabulator each, and if counted equally, goes forward, otherwise, audited? That would be simple and reasonable, so I know it's not going to be this way.

In Dane county at least there are 2 tabulators (technically “non-partisan”) and 2 observers at the plexi glass (1 Biden in front of 1 tabulator and 1 trump in front of other tabulator). And other observers 6 feet behind them. Tabulators are hired by the county. Each tabulator will get a stack of ballots or envelopes and will go through it in front of the observer at the plexi glass. At that time each observer can object or have reasonable due time to review. Once they are through the stack, the 2 tabulators will switch stacks with each other and go through the process again essentially giving each party to check the work of the other. The rest of the table works in the same manner for the ward and when you are through the stack you wait for everyone to be done, and then the objected ballots are brought up to the lawyers at the front of the room. There are lawyers going around throughout if any questions. Sorry if that’s confusing. Hard to wrap head around unless you are there

Excellent answer! Great process, too. The other observers 6' away are ... meaningless?

With the funny games they are playing, why don't the patriot observers simply object to each and every ballot?
