Republicans in Washington, D.C., as well as the Trump administration, have been trying to warn everyone for years about the problems that come along with mail-in voting.
They've been warning even more so now that we're in danger of this becoming a real possibility this election.
We still have COVID-19 hanging around the country and so the Democrats are trying to keep it going and keep pushing toward the mail-in ballots.
We've already seen multiple instances where ballots have been lost, thrown away, etc.
There's nothing different going to happen for those ballots than already happens for our current mail. I'll guarantee that every single person reading this has had mail lost or delivered to the wrong address.
CBS News conducted an experiment to test the integrity of utilizing mail-in voting. I'm sure they were expecting it to prove to be 100% accurate and have no issues, but the results were quite the opposite. It was a disaster.
Because of the coronavirus, 2020 marks a presidential election in which mail-in voting could play a pivotal role, for which reason “CBS News This Morning” co-host Tony Dokoupil conducted an experiment with a fake P.O. Box to determine if ballots were adequately counted.
Dokoupil sent out 100 mock ballots in the Philadelphia area, using the same size envelope, weight, and class of mail to simulate genuine mail-in votes, albeit without the expedited “Election Mail” insignia. After the post office box was set up, 100 more faux ballots were sent out.
“We’re gonna see somewhere between probably 80 and 100 million voters receiving their ballot that way,” a former Arizona election official told Dokoupil.
After a week, 97% of the ballots Dokoupil mailed had been returned. “Three simulated persons, or 3% of voters, were effectively disenfranchised by mail by giving their ballots a week to arrive,” CBS noted. “In a close election, 3% could be pivotal.”
Even four days after mailing the second round of fake ballots, 21% of the fake votes had failed to materialize. Almost half of states allow voters to receive ballots less than half-a-week before the election.
