Heed Jimmy Carter on the Danger of Mail-In Voting
The Wall Street Journal ^ | April 10, 2020 | John R. Lott, Jr

Posted on 04/11/2020 4:14:47 PM PDT by rogerantone1

‘Absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud.” That quote isn’t from President Trump, who criticized mail-in voting this week after Wisconsin Democrats tried and failed to change an election at the last minute into an exclusively mail-in affair. It’s the conclusion of the bipartisan 2005 report of the Commission on Federal Election Reform, chaired by former President Jimmy Carter and former Secretary of State James Baker III.

Who needs anyone to tell you this?

Especially with how relaxed vote by mail (absentee) voting has become. You don't even have to be the voter to turn in the ballots. You can literally carry stacks of them to the polling location and drop them in the box, mail them in or however you like.

The Gore campaign in FL had armed forces ballots sent in from overseas disallowed because there wasn’t a post office stamp. Thought they would break for W. AFO’s don’t have stamps. so not only can they add votes they can subtract them too.

As a side note to this thread consider this. Repealing the ill-conceived 17th Amendment will effectively wipe out voting fraud regardless of mail-in voting.

Insights welcome.

Send "Orange Man Bad" federal and state government Democrats, RINOs and non-elected bureaucrats home in November!

Supporting PDJT with a new patriot Congress and state government leaders that will promise to fully support his already excellent work for MAGA and stopping COVID-19 will effectively give fast-working Trump a third term in office imo.

MAGA, also KAGA! (Keep America Great Always!)

Stop mail in voting except for cause and that means out of Town or Military not too tired or don't want to stand in line.

Institute November 7th and 8th as voting days...the same every year.

The media claims there is no evidence of voter fraud, but Democrat states resist all attempts to disprove fraud.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presidential_Advisory_Commission_on_Election_Integrity

Keep in mind Wikipedia presents the leftist point of view, but the article shows many states, in particular Democrat-controlled ones, resisted giving any data to the commission.

Then you have the California ballot harvesting scam. That’s potential fraud on an entirely different level. Even if there is zero fraud regarding harvested ballots, it changes elections into a competition between which groups can harvest the most ballots.

The Gore campaign’s denial of armed forces votes is something I will never forgive or forget. This was while they falsely claimed they only wanted every legitimate vote counted. They lied!

If you ask Jimmuh today, I’m sure his position has “evolved”.

‘Absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud.”

Which is why it's so popular with Democrats.

“Absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud.”

Agreed.

It seems obvious to just about everybody.

Except for pissy geezers that write their 70 years of voting knows better.
