Linda Rantz is proof that one person can and does make a difference.

In 2021, Rantz moved with her husband from a solidly blue state to Missouri. The couple immediately became involved, volunteering in their new state, hoping to find a way to fix our broken elections after the 2020 election.

After spending a great deal of time canvassing in her state, the passionate activist and Osage County resident quickly began working to build relationships with local clerks in her state.

“I kept hearing Mike Lindell saying, ‘We gotta get rid of the machines! We gotta get rid of the machines!”  Linda said as she explained that she was “all for getting rid of the machines,” but wondered, “replace it with what??  Rantz became determined to find a solution to the problem of replacing the voting machines. She began delving into election law and discovered a statute in Missouri election law that states individual counties have the right to make their own decisions about how they tally votes. She and her husband traveled to Louisiana after hearing about an effective system they created for hand-counting votes. They were so impressed with what they witnessed in Louisiana that she brought the details about the program to the clerk in Osage County, who agreed to replace the voting machines with the hand-counting system.

On April 4, 2023,  in Osage County, MO, residents were introduced to the new hand-count system in a statewide election. Instead of watching their ballots being inserted into a machine that many voters distrust, they instead dropped their ballots into a secure ballot box and trusted the teams of Democrats and Republicans who volunteered to count their ballots, in the open, at the same facility where they voted.

After doing some digging, Linda discovered that Osage wasn’t the first county in Missouri to implement a hand count for elections. According to Rantz, a clerk in Worth County, MO, has been utilizing a hand count system in her small county for the past ten years.  The Worth County Clerk explained to Rantz that the citizens in her district “hated” the antiquated machines they were using to vote and wanted to get rid of them, and that’s when she decided to move to a hand count.

Missouri isn’t the only state taking action to get rid of voting machines in their state. In addition to Lousiana,  a quorum in Cleburne County, AK, also made the decision to return to the old-fashioned way of counting ballots after it was determined that voters no longer trust the voting machines that tally their votes.

Officials with the Arkansas Voter Integrity Initiative Inc. (AVII) said the vote was in response to AVII CEO Colonel Conrad Reynolds’ push for election computers to be removed from Arkansas elections.

“The machines do not read the names on the ballots; instead, they scan barcodes, which humans cannot read,” Reynolds said. “They also utilize proprietary software that we are not allowed to examine. This all means voters cannot verify that their vote is being counted properly as mandated by state law.”

Last week, the Gateway Pundit reported that in January, the County Supervisors in Shasta County, CA, also voted to get rid of Dominion voting systems in their elections! Their vote sent shockwaves through the state.


Mike Lindell has been passionately imploring states to ditch the easily hacked voting machines and return to the process of hand-counting paper ballots ever since the stunning upset of the 2020 election that handed the presidency over to an unpopular and mostly incoherent lifetime politician who campaigned from his basement.

In an age of technology that’s moving at warp speed, Americans have been duped into believing that the only way to count ballots in an election is with a machine. It’s simply not true.

While there is no perfect way to count ballots, at least the hand-counting system is one that is out in the open, and if there’s an issue, at least clerks won’t have a voting machine manufacturer tell them they can’t examine the machines because they contain proprietary information.

Even Democrats admitted after Trump lost that voting machines were not secure.

On January 9, 2020, Top executives from Dominion Voting Systems, Hart InterCivic and Election Systems and Software (ES&S) all testified before Congress. When asked by the ranking member of the House Administration Committee, Rep. Rodney Davis(IL), if voting machines were 100% secure, they all said “no.”

In 2017, fresh off the 2016 election, where President Trump (R) trounced Hillary Clinton (D), University of Michigan professor J. Alex Halderman demonstrated how easy it is to “steal” an election with “easily hackable” voting machines.

Linda Rantz was a guest on Mike Lindell’s Lindell TV yesterday, where she explained how Osage Co, MO is now hand-counting their ballots:

Last month, Mike Lindell interviewed Linda Rantz about the “You have the best hand-counting system of all time!” Mike asked, “You don’t need anyone to tell you if you can hand counts—correct?” Linda explained how they don’t need any approval to hand count paper ballots, as it is a county-by-county decision. Mike called on Missouri citizens to call on their Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft to demand paper counts in every county in future elections.
