Already, there have been accusations of mail-in voter fraud in elections. Final month, two Democrats in Paterson, New Jersey — together with two males linked to a Democrat marketing campaign — had been charged with allegedly fraudulently filling out mail-in ballots, having unauthorized possession of mail-in ballots, and tampering with public information.
Likewise, this month, a postal employee pleaded responsible to altering the occasion affiliation on a minimum of 5 absentee poll request kinds. The employee had switched the occasion affiliations from Democrat to Republican, a Division of Justice investigation discovered.
For years, mail-in voting has been rife with inaccuracies, mishaps, and fraud. Because the 2012 presidential election, almost 30 million mail-in ballots have gone lacking.
The ballot was carried out from July 12 to 15 and surveyed 1,006 adults. The margin of error is +/- zero.5 p.c.
Current knowledge has not proven a compelling public well being justification for mail-in voting. In Wisconsin’s April election, solely 52 of greater than 400,000 voters and ballot employees had been confirmed to have contracted the Chinese language coronavirus. None of these circumstances had been deadly. This equals an an infection charge under zero.02 p.c.
