Biased? Because I am anti voter fraud, and I see this for what it is?
Ok… I spent 5 minutes and found some examples… There are actually tons of examples of voter fraud with mail-in ballots…
Three quick examples… A 2018 congressional race in North Carolina was overturned by the state election board due to absentee ballot fraud.
A city council member in Ashtabula, Ohio had to resign after an investigation proved that he illegally registered to vote at his parent’s address in Ashtabula, rather than his residence in Plymouth, Ohio.
And, the mayor of Gordon, Alabama was removed from office after his conviction of absentee ballot fraud.
Now, this is not a Democrat vs Republican issue. We should all be concerned. Heck, another example was done to favor a Republican… In 2018, a political consultant and 7 others were indicted for scheming to illegally collect, fill in, forge and submit mail in ballots to benefit Republican Mark Harris. The fraud was extensive enough that Harris’s 900 vote victory was invalidated by the courts.
Another example… In 2016, a San Pedro couple found more than 80 unused ballots on top of their apartment building mailbox. All had different names but were addressed to an 89 year old neighbor who lived alone in the building.
Another issue… Los Angeles County in California has a voter registration rate of 112% of the adult citizen population. Yea, that’s not ripe for fraud…
In 2019, the state of California and Los Angeles settled a lawsuit to begin removing 1.5 million people from voter rolls. They had not been removing the names of people who had moved away for 20 years or more… How many of those “people” who are no longer even residents have miraculously voted in that city or state? And, some states belong to an electronic system to catch the names of people who move somewhere else - so they won’t vote in multiple states. Unfortunately, only 25 states and Washington DC participates in that system.
Now, in Ohio in recent years, there have been several known cases of people voting in multiple states (at the same time). And, from 2013 to 2017, 56 elections in Ohio resulted in a tie, and 86 were decided by 1 vote. Such voter fraud can absolutely affect the outcome of an election.
They also had 77 instances of non citizens they caught who voted in Ohio that cast ballot, and 277 more people registered to vote that were not citizens. And, that was just a search I did for a few minutes…
Admittedly, this is becoming a totally different issue when I say that Pennsylvania found that over 11,000 non citizens had registered to vote in that state last year. In Virginia, they removed 5,556 non citizens from voter roles, but not before 1/3 of them had already voted…
But there are a lot of voter fraud issues going on.
As for gerrymandering, we discussed that in a previous thread. BOTH sides do it, and it is wrong
