New report finds string of ballot mishaps confirms fears of large-scale mail-in...
Quote:The Honest Elections Project is warning that recent events unfolding in states throughout the country have confirmed their fears that November's election will be mired in controversy because states changed their voting procedures without adequate time to develop a workable system.

The group had warned in a July report that large-scale voting by mail would waste resources, create a risk of complications, such as fraud.

"Almost everything we warned of, happened in multiple states throughout the primaries," a new addendum to the report says. "Rather than learn from these mistakes, many states are repeating them."

The addendum points to lawsuits filed by liberal groups to force states into changing ballot deadlines that could result in late ballots being counted, and counting others that could otherwise be invalid. One such case is awaiting a decision by the Supreme Court.

Groups are also challenging election security laws such as witness requirements and prohibitions on ballot harvesting, which the Honest Elections Project claims could result in confusion and a lack of confidence in the election results.

"Uncertainty and last-minute rules changes amplify the risk of delay and post-election litigation that could drag on for weeks, cast doubt on the election’s outcome, and possibly force states to miss the deadline to participate in the Electoral College, disenfranchising millions," the group said.

The organization also expressed concern that the sheer number of absentee ballots now being cast is more than some states can handle if they did not already have the proper infrastructure in place. They cited an NPR report that revealed 550,000 absentee ballots were rejected during this year's primary elections.

Looking at November's election, the Honest Elections Project pointed to ballot errors, such as thousands in New York City that included envelopes made out to the wrong people, and thousands of others sent to Los Angeles County residents that did not include the ability to vote for president.

Honest Elections Project executive director Jason Snead told Fox News that the problems he has seen are "mostly system-level problems" as opposed to fraud, but the report does refer to several incidents, including the arrest of a New Jersey postal worker who allegedly dumped more than 1,800 pieces of mail, including 99 general election ballots.

Regardless of the intent or cause for problems, Snead warned that the best way to ensure the integrity of the election is for people to vote in person if they are capable of doing so. He said that unless voters are particularly vulnerable to coronavirus, they should vote in person, either on Election Day or during early voting periods to avoid overwhelming their states' voting systems.

"We need to have absentee voting for vulnerable voters," Snead said, saying that others should vote in person or the strain on the system will be tremendous. "Anyone who can vote in person," he said, "will free up an absentee ballot effectively for those who need it.”

Well, Golly gee, just look at all those "mishaps"!!!

Quote:Pennsylvania has cast off hundreds of thousands of applications for mail-in ballots ahead of the 2020 election, because of confusion about the process.

About 372,000 requests were rejected, as reported by ProPublica on Friday, largely because many of them, about 90%, were duplicates. Overall, one out of every five requests for mail-in ballots are being rejected, according to the publication.

The main reason? Many people who voted during the June primaries may have already checked a box to request a mail-in ballot for the November election.

However, people who made more than one request should eventually receive their ballot, a spokesperson for the Pensylvania State Department said. They can also head to the polls on Election Day.

The spokesperson said about 2 million people have selected an option to automatically have ballots sent for the current calendar year, meaning they do not need to reapply.

More than 2.7 million Pennsylvanians have requested mail-in ballots this election.

The state is expecting a record volume of ballots to be sent by mail and, as it stands, counties can’t begin the cumbersome process necessary to ultimately tally those votes until Election Day.

There is an ongoing discussion in the state legislature to allow pre-canvassing to begin in the days leading up to the election although an agreement hasn't been struck.

There is concern that the longer it takes Pennsylvania to tally its final vote count, the more likely it is that there will be misgivings about the security of the process.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court added to the confusion when it ruled that if a ballot is not mailed in a “secrecy” envelope it is to be rejected, which adds an additional step to counting the ballots.

The court will also take up whether a ballot should be dismissed if a signature is markedly different than the one stored in the voter registration database.

Meanwhile, there is another ongoing battle in the court system over the timeframe for mail-in ballots to be counted. As it stands, the Supreme Court has allowed for ballots that are postmarked by Election Day and received by Nov. 6 to be counted.

Asking for ID to vote is voter suppression but not allowing people to vote because they didn't check a box is ok.

Yes, they forgot they already requested one. So, the state correctly denied the duplicate request. So, the system worked correctly. 07-coffee3

Red - what will you do, how will you feel if Trump wins? I have no clue if he will or not, my gut feeling changes daily at this point. It will not be the end of my world if JB wins, but what about you?



This is where I get lost in some of the hate and vitriol. So many people look like they will literally explode if the guy wins? There will be a mass exodus from our country if the guy wins? There will be an uprising of the losers in rioting if he wins? It is irrational behavior - like that of a 5 year old who is told No.


If Biden wins - they guy is President Biden - lets go, lets fix stuff! Why can't those on the other side just accept this in a similar fashion.

Democrats are incompetent. Does anyone think they could handle big changes like this even if they weren't trying to cheat?

My son registered to vote in September in Dekalb County, Georgia, an 80% Democratic county. He had to do a provisional ballot because his name wasn't on the list. My daughter only registered a week and a half ago and she's not on the list. She'll probably have to do provisional as well.

When you see stories about long lines in polling places in Georgia, its almost always heavily Democratic and heavily corrupt Dekalb and Fulton. Dekalb is the home of Hank, don't tip Guam, Johnson.

Sorry there Tom but most sane people would consider the 325,000 double votes mean there are some serious problems.
