Ballots Stolen From Mailboxes in State of Washington

In the town of Sammamish, Washington, mail-in-ballots were stolen from the mailboxes of residents and at a minimum, were dumped in another location.

Police in a city just east of Seattle said Friday that numerous mail ballots have been stolen from people’s mailboxes and placed or discarded elsewhere.

The post office alerted the Sammamish Police Department “that unopened or incomplete ballots have been inappropriately placed in out-going mail bins,” the city of Sammamish said Friday.

Police have also investigated bags of mail that had ballots in them on roadsides and in ditches.

…Police are trying to redirect the ballots back to their intended recipients.

If the post office noted, “that unopened or incomplete ballots have been inappropriately placed in out-going mail bins,” it begs an obvious question. Were completed ballots filled out and submitted? Given that they’d look like every other completed ballot, there’s no way to know. Could someone have done that? Absolutely. Is there some reason to think that a person stealing ballots wouldn’t do that? No. Is it entirely possible that person could have filled out 50 or 100 ballots without ever getting caught? Absolutely.

Now, will that impact who becomes President? It’s very doubtful because that state is highly likely to go to Biden. However, could that many votes impact local races? You bet. Could those ballots cancel out the legitimate votes of people voting for another candidate? You bet…and again, could we even be sure if it happened or didn’t? Not really. Could this be happening on a larger scale in other places where national races could be impacted? Absolutely.

This is why the whole debate we have in this country on ballot security is nuts. Republicans keep arguing for it and Democrats, who believe they are benefitting from fraud, respond that only 1298 people have been caught doing it. Of course, if over a thousand have been caught, that probably means there are tens of thousands that have gotten away with it at a minimum. Why not just make sure the ballot is secure in the first place? Get rid of mail-in-ballots. Make voter ID a requirement. Have bipartisan rules in place long before the election. Allow objective machines to do the counting instead of biased human beings. Democrats are willing to do everything but the right thing when it comes to securing the sanctity of the vote.
