Strategy: How Trump may preserve and protect the Federal Election process in 2020 and beyond

October surprise:

President Trump issues an E.O. requiring Voter ID for Federal Elections. There's the instant end to all the Mail-in ballot non-sense.

Next, post at least one armed, National Guard member in full gear at every polling place in the US and have an ICE Agent on call. Protection of all voters is therefore assured. (e.g., No more Blank Panthers with clubs at Philadelphia polling places)

Issuing such an E.O. like this would cause Dems to judge shop and impose an injunction, but President Trump would ram it straight up the USSC on an emergency hearing, due to the shortness of time before the election.

It might actually be law right now (I am not a lawyer), but have President Trump declare that all polling places involved in Federal elections are surrogate Federal facilities, for the time of polling, because they are handling Federal documentation for a Federal election, where Federal Electors are selected per Article 12, as you note.

An official government issued ID will be required to enter the surrogate Federal facility for the time that ballots remain at the polling location. This is literally Voter ID. After the polls close, the ballots are remanded to Federal custody, and ferried to a Federally secured location accompanied by the National Guard member(s) already stationed at the polling place.

Since the USSC building and Federal polling places are each deemed to be Federal facilities under the protection and control of routine Federal facility access practices, there would be a seamless solution to which USSC could not object either conceptually and legally.

The USSC would have to acknowledge that entry to the USSC requires a Federal ID as does entrance to every other Federal Building.

Federal Property Law and Legal Definition:

“20 USCS § 107e defines “federal property” as any building, land, or other real property owned, leased, or occupied by any department, agency, or instrumentality of the United States (including the Department of Defense and the United States Postal Service), or any other instrumentality wholly owned by the United States, or by any department or agency of the District of Columbia or any territory or possession of the United States.”

Theory: Could polling places used in Federal Elections be considered to be “occupied” by “department, agency, or instrumentality of the United States,” such as the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, for instance?

The Civil Rights Division of DOJ is vested with assuring that the voting rights of citizens are upheld, and it is the division to which voting right civil rights complaints may be filed. In essence the DOJ would supervise a Federal election as it deputizes the polling place for temporarily housing a division of local Civil Rights Division units of the DOJ.

It would have to be a careful function as cameras can violate the secrecy of ballot voting. Imagine what a lefty with a body cam in a precinct might do.

I like this idea a lot! I also think there should be 'chain of custody' enforced on all mail in votes just like evidence for law enforcement.
