Adams & von Spakovsky: America’s hidden voting epidemic? Mail ballot failures

A new report has revealed how vulnerable voting by mail can be. It should alarm all who are pushing for all-mail elections: Based on federal data from the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, millions of mail ballots were never counted as completed votes.

Hypocrisy of the anti-voter ID crowd

Russia! They altered votes! They interfered! They elected Republicans! They moved my cheese! Although the ridiculous Russian collusion hoax has fallen into the lake of fire where it belongs, progressive activists, media and politicians could not have harped on it more in 2017 and 2018. And yet, as ACRU Issue Expert Christian Adams points out, domestic voter fraud is just fine with liberals. He notes that voter ID is supported by around 80% of Americans. So, liberal friends, if our voting programs are being targeted by the Russians … why don’t you want to make sure legal votes are protected?

Double double, fraud and trouble

Thanks to ACRU Policy Board Member Hans von Spakovsky and Kaitlynn Samalis-Aldrich, a researcher at the Meese Center (founded by ACRU Board Member Ed Meese,) for doubling up on this great article about double voting. Listing numerous recent, demonstrable cases of double voting in several states, they note in particular a history of double voting in Ohio, a state where 56 elections between 2013 - 2017 resulted in a tie vote and 86 were decided by only one vote. There are a lot of cases of double voting that we know about —how many do we not? Voter ID matters. Matching your face to your name to your ballot is a simple fix and the only reason we can think anyone would be against it would be to encourage cheating.
