Skip to comments.More than 6000 mail-in ballots in Florida were not counted: officials

More than 6,000 mailed ballots in Florida went uncounted in November's midterm elections, according to a report by the Associated Press.
Officials at the Florida Department of State informed a federal judge last week that 6,670 ballots that were mailed in ahead of the November 6 midterm election were left uncounted because they arrived after Election Day.
Ballots mailed inside the U.S. must reach election offices by 7 p.m. on Election Day under current Florida law. It is not yet clear why the ballots did not make it to the election offices on time.
According to The Associated Press, the missing ballots came from 65 of Florida's 67 counties.

Would seem like multiple locations "held" these ballots. That seems like multiple people conspired .
Does that seem likely? How do we KNOW the ballots were mailed before election day?
Just no. Let voters vote exclusively on time and in person.
A clear case of disenfranchisement of the person that voted in those 6000 ballots.
I feel so bad for the guy.
By their postmarks.
In 1978, it was my first year in the Air Force, and I registered to vote while overseas. I actually sent the paperwork into the state twelve weeks prior to the election. The ballot? It arrived six days prior to the election. I turned it around that day and mailed it out (via military postal in Germany). Over the next twenty years, I voted continually the same way.
At some point, while visiting the home-state after retirement....I talked to the county clerk and she kinda admitted that they tended to not count the absentee votes that arrived after the voting day....if they arrived prior to that, it was virtually guaranteed to be counted. Since that point (about five years ago), my state now emails you a pin number and gives you a seven-day period (all prior to the election) to vote on-line.
I suspect if you go state by state....more than forty of the states are broken in respect to absentee ballots. Either people are getting the ballots who shouldn’t vote, or they just don’t count them because they are mailed out late and can’t return on time. But behind all of this....the voting officials just don’t care. This has all become a Frankenstein-like system and it’s built to be corrupted.
Let me guess. ALL 6,000 votes, were for the rat 🐀 Am I right?
And so the crap continuees.
Trump should declare martial law and arrest these fraudsters.
Election Day was back in the beginning of November. It’s over. If these people can’t figure out how to count votes on Election Day. In a first world country, a country that claims to be the best in the world, forget them. Fire them
Enough with corrupt Florida election officials.
Ballots mailed inside the U.S. must reach election offices by 7 p.m. on Election Day under current Florida law. So what’s the problem?. It’s the law
On election day, shut down the lottery and move those machines into the polling places.
Your 1978 experience parallels mine in that same time frame and also in Germany. Even worse, one of my “extra duties” as a young lieutenant in that time/place was Unit Voting Officer. I was trying to help all the soldiers in the unit and even I couldn’t get the system to work. Your info about the PIN and online voting seems the best technology solution.
What were the other two counties that weren’t affected? Broward and Palm Beach, perhaps?
Who is stamping them... and how did we know they stamped the correct date on them.
Let the military vote a month ahead of time if they made up their mind. Trump should (as I’ve written before) give them a DIRECT ORDER to vote. If they don’t like it they can vote for the rat.
People on oxygen/serious illnesses cannot stand in long lines, those cared for at home, or in nursing homes cannot vote in person!
...and well over 60,000 “votes” were manufactured in Orange County through fraudulent ballot harvesting. But the media doesn’t care about that.
“Am I right?”
I’d bet $5 you are.
Unless you’re in the military stationed away from home or in the hospital you should have to be at the voting precinct in person on the day of the election.
