Election officials in the seven Wyoming counties where voters can cast ballots via drop boxes disregarded interim Secretary of State Karl Allred’s request to ditch the boxes.

Allred, a Uinta County Republican Party committeeman, made the request in the first week of his appointed secretary of state tenure via a letter to Wyoming’s 23 county clerks.

Make our elections rock solidly transparent and auditable. No room for fraud of any kind. Then people will relax. There is no confidence that the opportunity for fraud has been completely investigated and eliminated, and statements from the press to the contrary aren't persuasive. Objective investigation by Wyofile would be much more useful than boilerplate propaganda.

My perception is that many Republicans will only relax when they are the only ones that win elections. I'm not interested in living in a country like Hungary, Turkey, or Russia. These countries are ostensibly democracies but are dominated by single parties that control the courts and election mechanisms ensuring further one- party rule. That is the end result when unfounded doubt in the election process is perpetuated and a political party refuses to concede elections when they don't like the result. Many congressional Republicans currently in office that deny the results of the 2020 election were elected on the same ballot as Joe Biden. Were they elected in error as well? Other than that, I agree that elections should be transparent and auditable. In fact, that is the system that we currently have.

Your description of Republicans could very easily apply to Democrats. Democrats currently control Congress and the presidency and are telling us that if Republicans get elected it will be the end of democracy.
