Mail-in voting provides an opportunity for massive voter fraud, with potentially millions of ballots being unaccounted for as well as millions of improper votes being cast and counted.

Another problem with mail-in-ballots is “ballot harvesting,” the practice of third-parties collecting mail-in ballots on behalf of voters and delivering them to election officials.

Last week, Twitter “fact-checked” two of President Trump’s tweets that railed against mail-in voting, claiming they were “misleading.”

Twitter slapped a fact check label on a pair of “misleading” tweets by President Donald Trump on Tuesday in which he railed against mail-in voting amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent. Mailboxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed. The Governor of California is sending Ballots to millions of people, anyone living in the state, no matter who they are or how they got there, will get one,” Trump tweeted.

“That will be followed up with professionals telling all of these people, many of whom have never even thought of voting before, how, and for whom, to vote. This will be a Rigged Election. No way!”

President Trump is openly calling out Democrats for pushing for mail-in voting, saying it’s the opposite of voter ID. President Trump clarified that absentee ballots are good, but isn’t the same as mail-in voting where forged ballots and/or missing ballots could be a huge problem:

In the must-win state of Michigan, where President Trump won by a small margin, their Democrat Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson is reporting that more than 10,000 absentee ballots in Tuesday’s primary election had to be rejected because they were received after election day, even though they were postmarked prior to election day.

Like elsewhere in America, Democrats in the state of Michigan are also pushing for mail-in voting. Will the Democratic Party use the failure by election officials to collect and count the ballots in a timely manner as an excuse to push for mail-in voting in the toss-up state?

Accoring to WXYZ-TV-Benson estimated nearly 3 million Michiganders will be voting by mail come November and called for key legislative changes to ensure all votes are counted, including advanced prep time for clerks and funding for the U.S. Postal Service.

“As of yesterday, more than 10,000 absentee ballots have had to be rejected because they were postmarked prior to Election day but received after Election day,” Benson reported. “We do not know how many of these will be in our final total, we’re still working through that. But in our view this underscored the need for two key legislative changes at the state level.”

“We need to update our law to ensure that ballots that are postmarked by Election day but received after Election day and the two days to follow will still count. Those are valid ballots that were voted on time and submitted on time, and our voters’ rights should not be subject to the capacity of the U.S. Postal Service.”

Election workers faced a counting backlog Tuesday after Michiganders returned 1.6 million absentee ballots. Two million absentee ballots were requested in the mail.

So, how reliable are mail-in ballots?

Real Clear Politics reports: Between 2012 and 2018, 28.3 million mail-in ballots remain unaccounted for, according to data from the federal Election Assistance Commission. The missing ballots amount to nearly one in five of all absentee ballots and ballots mailed to voters residing in states that do elections exclusively by mail.

States and local authorities simply have no idea what happened to these ballots since they were mailed – and the figure of 28 million missing ballots is likely even higher because some areas in the country, notably Chicago, did not respond to the federal agency’s survey questions. This figure does not include ballots that were spoiled, undeliverable, or came back for any reason.

Although there is no evidence that the millions of missing ballots were used fraudulently, the Public Interest Legal Foundation, which compiled the public data provided from the Election Assistance Commission, says that the sheer volume of them raises serious doubts about election security.

These questions are particularly relevant as the COVID-19 pandemic is forcing states across the country to rapidly expand vote-by-mail operations in an election year. Democratic Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Ron Wyden have proposed the Natural Disaster and Emergency Ballot Act of 2020, a bill that would allow every eligible voter the opportunity to vote by mail, regardless of state laws governing mail-in ballots.

VOTER FRAUD related to mail-in voting is very real:

On June 25, 2020, NJ.COM reported about two men who were charged with fraud in casting mail-in votes, unauthorized possession of ballots, tampering with public records and falsifying or tampering with records, according to the statement. Mendez was additionally charged with election fraud and false registration or transfer.

Along with Jackson and Mendez, two Passaic County men, Shelim Khalique, 51, of Wayne, and Abu Razyen, 21, of Prospect Park, were also charged.

The investigation was sparked by reports that hundreds of mail-in ballots were found in a mailbox in Paterson and in a mailbox in Haledon. The coronavirus pandemic has forced voters to mail in their ballots, as voting sites are no longer open.

The charges come after an election fraught with irregularities, including the reported incident where 400 Paterson ballots were found in Haledon, 300 were found in South Paterson and another 100 were found elsewhere.

President Trump has been ringing the alarm bells about the dangers of mail-in ballots, saying, “You’ll never know who the winner is!” adding, “But the winner’s going to be me.”
