Vote by mail

July 15, 2020 |

Republicans warn that voting by mail would be a recipe for massive vote fraud (it would.) But that’s only part of the problem. It would also mean trusting the integrity of our elections to the US Post Office. Nothing against the hard-working men and women of the postal service, but there’s a reason why there so many jokes about things being lost in the mail.

Here’s a round up of the latest vote-by-mail stories. For instance, in Wisconsin, it was an absolute disaster, with ballots never getting to voters, arriving at the wrong destinations or getting back too late to be counted. The primary was April 7th, and they’re still not sure who the valid winners were…

California election officials have rejected over 100,000 mail-in ballots from their recent primary, due to mistakes…

And in West Virginia, a mail carrier pleaded guilty to changing the party affiliation on some mail-in ballots. He claimed he did it as “a joke.”

If all this doesn’t convince Democrats to abandon the idea of voting by mail, maybe this will:

The mail carrier in West Virginia changed the party affiliation on those ballots from Democrat to Republican. Maybe that will actually make Democrats care about stopping vote fraud.

    Ya know Mike , as hard as it would be to watch Biden win this November ,, I could stomach it if , after all the votes were counted , I knew that every vote was a honest to goodness vote cast by a real person who voted how they wanted to vote ,,,

    I agree, and do not trust mail-in voting, especially in this divisive climate. So why am I receiving reminders (two in last month) in the mail (supposedly from the Republican Party with Trump endorsement) to make sure to register for Absentee Ballot voting? I will only do in person voting on Nov 3!
