Pleading the public health emergency, Democrats are trying to replace voting at polling places with mail-in and absentee ballots.
While this sounds like a good idea, it opens the door to massive voter fraud, which is probably their intention in the first place. If the Democrats succeed in making the 2020 election a vote-by-mail contest, Trump cannot possibly win.
Democrats and their leftist field organizations use absentee and mail-in ballots to conduct "vote harvesting" in which they visit party strongholds like nursing homes, public housing projects, and Indian reservations to sign up voters and collect ballots en masse.
Since there is no secret ballot, intimidation and/or bribery play a big roll in collecting ballots, particularly in those locations where vulnerable voters could be subject to harassment.
Vote harvesting is believed to have played a key role in at least five surprise Democratic Congressional victories in California in 2018. (Republicans have no comparable ability to harvest votes since they don’t have locations where the concentration of GOP support is so widespread as to enable vote harvesting).
Five states — Washington State, Oregon, Utah, Colorado, and Hawaii — exclusively use mail-in ballots. And, there, the record is not so good.
Already, 40% of all ballots in the US are sent in by mail — and guess what?
They 're heavily Democratic.
Oregon, for example — the first state to have exclusively mail-in voting — sent out 7 million mail-in ballots in the elections of 2012 and 2018. But 871,000 of them were lost, stolen, or misplaced and never counted. The Federal Election Assistance Commission reports that 28 million mailed in or absentee ballots have gone missing in the past four national elections.
24.9 million in 2004 to 57.2 million in 2016, and around 40% of U.S. votes are now done by mail.
Between the porous system in collecting and counting these ballots and the fraudulent use of ballot harvesting, our free and fair elections are at stake.
In another assault on democracy, New York State has ruled that anyone who got a drivers license was automatically registered to vote, even though there is no requirement to produce documentation of citizenship or even legal status in getting a license.
This precedent will likely spread to other states and will, in practice, eliminate the exclusivity of the right of only citizens to vote.
The absence of required photo identification at the polls heightens the risk of fraudulent ballots.
