The difference between absentee voting and mail-only voting is that absentee voting requires a request for a ballot, but mail-only voting means a ballot will be sent to a house where a voter once lived. This article provides a great primer on why this is an invitation for fraud, and also uses Honest Elections Project data to show how widespread voter registration inaccuracies truly are.
According to an analysis of this year's primaries by National Public Radio, at least 65,000 mail in votes were not counted in 17 states studied. Uncounted mail-only ballots, even without malfeasance by dishonest election activists, are a way to stifle American’s political voices. Many elections have been determined by a handful of votes. 65,000 is a big handful.
Liberals have made quick use of the coronavirus crisis to promote all manner of policy prescriptions that, under less dire circumstances, would be ignored or lamented by conservatives. The left’s latest gambit is the George Soros-backed vote-by-mail scheme, which promises an election cycle ripe for fraud.
President and 1968 Wharton graduate Donald Trump’s reelection campaign filed a lawsuit against Pennsylvania’s Secretary of State and County Elections Boards, arguing that Pennsylvania’s use of mail-in ballot drop boxes in the June 2 primary election was unconstitutional and increased the threat of voter fraud.
Despite prosecutions and public stories identifying vote fraud activists targeting seniors, many in our media and political class continue to deny that our elderly population can be singled out for vote manipulation and suppression.
Sixty-two percent of Americans believe voting by mail increases fraud. So we reviewed mainstream media vote fraud stories and found nearly every story started with, “GOP to fight voter fraud that doesn’t exist.” The bias willingly ignores fraud despite reams of evidence. Author Gore Vidal once quipped, “Half the American people never read a newspaper. Half never vote for President — the same half?” Glad you read the EIB.
Leave it to an Army general to analyze, summarize and finalize the dangers of mail-only voting, succinctly, using data, and then give marching orders to the concerned. In a letter to the North Carolina Pilot, Lt. Gen. Marvin Covault (ret.) uses years of experience and all three of his stars to recognize that mail-only voting is the enemy of vote integrity.
Connecticut law permits absentee voting for people away on election day, serving in the military, or disabled. The state’s Democrat executive—with no legal authority—wants to expand that to anyone who thinks they might get sick. The state’s GOP is suing to prevent this unlawful strategy. Perhaps people who know they are going to be sick on election day should be picking lottery numbers for the rest of us.
California’s Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom is not a legislator and has no legal authority to demand an all mail election—only the state legislature does. This was recently explained to him by a California judge who read the law. According to the Election Integrity Project of California, about 648K people who are dead, moved, never voted, or over 105 years old would receive ballots under Newsom’s scheme. We call that open season for fraud.
Of the 2,400 Republicans in one New Jersey town requesting a GOP ballot for a July primary, nearly 700 received a Democrat ballot. When the Governor demanded an all-mail election, election clerks scrambled for print vendors. The owner of the printing company that made the mistake says it was “honest human error.” Add “honest human error” to the reasons why universal mail-only voting is a bad idea.
