President Trump tweeted out the news of another major clitch in mailing out ballots. In this case, it’s absentee ballots.
50,000 Ohio voters are getting the wrong absentee ballots. Franklin County, Ohio is the most populous county in Ohio and one in five voters will receive the wrong ballot.
“We can now confirm that 49,669 voters received an incorrect ballot.”
County officials say that new ballots will be mailed out within 72 hours.
There have been several instances of ballot losses and ballot harvesting so far this election season.
President Trump has warned about mail-in-ballots and the possibility of voter fraud during this year’s election. It looks like he was right about his prediction.
The US Attorney’s office in the District of New Jersey charged a mail carrier with dumping mail, including election ballots.
Nicholas Beauchene (photo below) was charged with one count of mail obstruction and one count of delay, secretion, or detention of mail:
1,875 pieces of mail were dumped by the mail carrier. He dumped 99 election ballots sent from the County Board of Elections and intended to be delivered to West Orange residents, from his assigned routes in Orange and West Orange, U.S.
According to the US Attorney’s Office, the delay of mail charge is punishable by a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The obstruction of mail charge is punishable by a maximum penalty of six months in prison and a $5,000 fine.
There was also an incident in Virginia recently where six mailboxes were broken into. How can your vote be safe if the mailboxes can be broken into?
Wisconsin is a critical swing state in the upcoming election and mail dumping has also happened there:
Trump stunned Democrats when he won Wisconsin in 2016 and their allies in the media and leftist groups are working overtime to ensure he doesn’t win the formerly blue state again.
It’s being reported that trays of mail, including absentee ballots, have been found in a ditch in Greenville, WI.
The Outagamie County Sheriff’s Office discovered the trays in a ditch on Tuesday morning, near Appleton International Airport, according to WLUK. The mail was returned to the U.S. Postal Service, and an investigation is underway.
“The United States Postal Inspection Service immediately began investigating, and we reserve further comment on this matter until that is complete,” USPS spokesman Bob Sheehan told WLUK.
The Outagamie County Sheriff’s Office told the Washington Examiner that the mail discovered was “mail going to the post office.”
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, states have expanded eligibility for mail-in balloting. Thousands of ballots went uncounted during Wisconsin’s primary because they were discovered on the day after the election.
A federal judge ordered the Postal Service to prioritize election mail on Monday.
“The right to vote is too vital a value in our democracy to be left in a state of suspense in the minds of voters weeks before a presidential election, raising doubts as to whether their votes will ultimately be counted,” U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero said.
“Conflicting, vague, and ambivalent managerial signals could also sow substantial doubt about whether the USPS is up to the task, whether it possesses the institutional will power and commitment to its historical mission, and so to handle the exceptional burden associated with a profoundly critical task in our democratic system, that of collecting and delivering election mail a few weeks from now,” he added.
A top Democratic operative says voter fraud, especially with mail-in ballots, is no myth. And he knows this because he’s been doing it, on a grand scale, for decades.
New York Post – Mail-in ballots have become the latest flashpoint in the 2020 elections. While President Trump and the GOP warn of widespread manipulation of the absentee vote that will swell with COVID polling restrictions, many Democrats and their media allies have dismissed such concerns as unfounded.
But the political insider, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he fears prosecution, said fraud is more the rule than the exception. His dirty work has taken him through the weeds of municipal and federal elections in Paterson, Atlantic City, Camden, Newark, Hoboken, and Hudson County and his fingerprints can be found in local legislative, mayoral, and congressional races across the Garden State. Some of the biggest names and highest officeholders in New Jersey have benefited from his tricks, according to campaign records The Post reviewed.
“An election that is swayed by 500 votes, 1,000 votes — it can make a difference,” the tipster said. “It could be enough to flip states.”
The whistleblower — whose identity, rap sheet, and long history working as a consultant to various campaigns were confirmed by The Post — says he not only changed ballots himself over the years but led teams of fraudsters and mentored at least 20 operatives in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania — a critical 2020 swing state.
“There is no race in New Jersey — from city council to United States Senate — that we haven’t worked on,” the tipster said. “I worked on a fire commissioner’s race in Burlington County. The smaller the race, the easier it is to do.”
A Bernie Sanders die-hard with no horse in the presidential race, he said he felt compelled to come forward in the hope that states would act now to fix the glaring security problems present in mail-in ballots.
