Problems Persist With Mass Mail-in Voting

    Katie Pavlich argues at that Democrats' push for mass mail-in voting this year could backfire.

  • When the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic came to America earlier this year, Democrats rushed to score political points and demanded elections be conducted through the mail instead of in person. They did this thinking it would be politically advantageous and productive in bolstering victory for their candidates. ...
  • ... t's been six months since mass mail-in voting was first proposed. There is one month to go until the 2020 presidential election. This experiment has already been nothing short of a completely predictable disaster. ...
  • ... In states across the country, households are receiving numerous ballots, with none of them addressed to the person who currently lives at the residence.
  • "A Washington, DC, friend had EIGHT ballots sent to her apartment. ZERO ballots were for the current resident," Nathan Brand, who works at the National Republican Senatorial Committee, recently tweeted.
  • The results have been so chaotic and unreliable, The New York Times Editorial Board is now calling for voters to cast their ballots in person.
  • "Any New Yorker who is able to do so ought to vote early and in person." ...
  • ... All along, this is what Republicans and President Trump have been encouraging Americans to do — in local and national elections.
  • But considering Democrats are still voting by mail in droves, their votes are the most at risk. In the New York races, which adopted mass mail-in voting this year, 20 percent of ballots received were thrown out or disqualified due to human error. In states across the country, hundreds-of-thousands of votes via mail were rejected. ...
  • ... On the campaign trail, Democrats continue to tout a surge in mail-in voting requests while Republicans plan on voting in person. Ironically, Democrats have put their own votes in jeopardy in yet another failed attempt to prove President Trump wrong.
