Skip to comments.Mitt Romney counters Trump: 90 percent of 'very Republican' Utah votes by mail
Posted on 05/22/2020 5:54:59 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) pushed back against President Trumps claims that voting by mail disadvantages Republicans, noting that large numbers of voters in Utah, a Republican stronghold, vote by mail.
"In my state, I'll bet 90 percent of us vote by mail. It works very, very well and it's a very Republican state," Romney told reporters on Capitol Hill Wednesday, according to ABC News.
Much of the Western U.S. has voted by mail for years, and a poll released Wednesday found residents of those states are among the demographics most likely to say they would prefer to vote by mail rather than in person. Nevadas state Republican Party is currently running Facebook ads encouraging voters to mail ballots in ahead of the deadline.
Trump, who voted by mail himself in Florida's primary this year, has stepped up his attacks on mail-in voting, threatening to withhold federal funds from Michigan after its secretary of state announced all voters would be mailed an application for an absentee ballot. Trump initially wrongly described the state as mailing out absentee ballots before deleting the tweet and posting a new one describing them as applications.
Trump sent a similar tweet about Nevada, where all active registered voters will automatically receive a mail-in ballot ahead of the June primary.
Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske (R) also pushed back, saying in a statement, "Secretary Cegavske lawfully declared the 2020 primary election as a mail-in election," according to ABC News.
"Nevada has many safeguards in place to ensure the integrity of an all-mail election, including signature requirements and verification processes, preprinted ballot return envelopes, barcode tracking, and laws against ballot harvesting, her office added.

Well, that explains how Mitt gets elected.
I think Romney missed the point.
Just FOAD Willard
ENOUGH of your family interfering in American freedom
Oh I see, he pulled the number out of his Mitt...
Romney tracked down reporters? What a shock.
Romney is trying to regain his manhood. This guy is really pathetic.
Sen. Carlos Danger RomneyCARE cheated in Mass.
regularly, and bussed his followers in NH to cheat
there, too. He faked his own “badges” to show
his importance, and now fakes being a human.
In states with low population densities, like Utah, Vote By Mail makes sense. Even in Texas, persons over age 65 can Vote By Mail, and that works well.
Mitt Rominey has never met a leftist premise with which he wasnt ready to agree.
Go to the bathroom, Mitt.
McCain 2.0. The bastard can’t stifle it.
Utah is a bunch of nerds, relatively speaking. They vote basically one party and they aren’t inclined to engage in fraud.
Who would use Utah as an example of anything?
Utah. Silicon Slopes. Lots of H1B Indian scum. They all vote illegally Democrat. Watch for major fraud.
For the primary in Ohio my husband and I received applications for mail in voting. We each got 2. This was done by De Wines daughter. The catch was that it was not postage paid. She lost. Had she sent postage paid applications she would have done better. Even requiring a stamp is too much for some voters.
Pierre Delecto speaks.
The problem is the states where Democrats distribute the ballots and count them, too. Romney would like to see universal mail in voting so that he can be the Leader of the Permanent and Declining Minority.
Such a tiresome fraud of a person, Romney is. He suffers from a terminal case of penis envy.
