States’ Decisions to Mail Ballots to All Registered Voters Opened the Door to Election Fraud
The New York Times informed readers on Wednesday that “Election Officials Nationwide Find No Fraud.” Yes, that really was the main headline on the front page of the most widely read newspaper in America.
The Times claimed their reporters had spoken to election officials throughout the country and they all agreed that no evidence of fraud exists.
This was news to the hundreds of whistleblowers who have provided sworn affidavits detailing the fraud they’d witnessed last week in the key battleground states. The wrongdoing revealed in these accounts includes: Republican election observers being kicked out of counting facilities, particularly at crucial times; being told to ignore the requirement that signatures match; postal workers being directed to backdate ballots received after 8pm on November and more.
Although the left continues to gaslight Americans by denying its existence, mail-in voting has brought with it unprecedented levels of fraud.
The pandemic was actually a great gift to Democrats who used it as a pretext to advance mail-in voting, a long-sought goal.
Numerous states used the coronavirus to justify mailing ballots to all registered voters on their voter rolls. The problem with that? Many states, maybe even most states, fail to update or “purge” their lists of residents who have either moved or died.
In his opening monologue on Wednesday night, Tucker Carlson told viewers that there was massive interference in our election. He first discussed the alarming number of dead people who voted in the 2020 election.
He cited the results of a 2012 Pew Research study which showed that 1.8 million dead U.S. citizens remained on voter rolls. He said, “That study also said there were 24 million voter registrations, one out of every eight in America, that were wrong. They were either no longer valid or they were significantly incorrect. Close to three million Americans had registrations in more than one state.”
What happens to all of those unsolicited ballots sent to residents who have either moved or died? Carlson states the obvious. “You’re guaranteed to increase the amount of fraudulent voting.”
Why would Carlson cite polling data from 2012? I tried to find more recent data and found there is little to none available. I attribute this to the fact that Democrats are well aware that the cleaner their voter rolls, the less opportunity there is to perpetrate fraud.
He considered Nevada, a state where every registered voter was sent a mail-in ballot. Officials knew, he said, that 41,000 of those on the state’s voter rolls had not voted or updated their registrations in over ten years.
“Why? Because many of these people are either dead or gone. But they got ballots anyway.”
How did this happen?
Carlson explains that, “Democrats did it…And Republicans let them…They [Democrats] understand that when you send mail-in ballots to an entire unverified voter roll, you can’t really know who’s voting. But just to make certain that fraud remained likely, Democrats filed lawsuits in Nevada to eliminate signature verification…Democrats have tried to remove all barriers to voting.”
Long before the coronavirus became a household word and changed our way of life, Democrats have pushed for mail-in voting. In 2019, Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden “sponsored the “Vote by Mail Act.” This would require that every state send a mail-in ballot to each person on their voter roll. “Whether you ask for it or not, whether you are alive or not, you get a ballot.”
In May, the House introduced legislation called “The Heroes Act.” This bill went a little further than the Vote by Mail Act. In addition to sending a mail-in ballot to every name on their voter list, it also would have prevented states from placing restrictions on ballot harvesting.
One individual who has worked tirelessly to force states to clean up their voter rolls is Tom Fitton, the founder and president of conservative watchdog Judicial Watch. His group has combed through county voter rolls in every state and has filed lawsuits (to try) to force states into purging their lists of ineligible voters.
A September 2020 study conducted by Judicial Watch revealed the rather astonishing news that “353 U.S. counties had 1.8 million more registered voters than eligible voting-age citizens. In other words, the registration rates of those counties exceeded 100% of eligible voters.” (Note: Although the 1.8 million figure also appears in the Pew data cited above, this is a coincidence, not a typo.)
Although his organization has made progress in some states, there is still a long way to go.
In May, a Judicial Watch investigation into Pennsylvania’s voter rolls found that 800,000 voters in Bucks, Chester and Delaware counties were ineligible. They filed a lawsuit.
According to Fox News, a left-wing group, Pennsylvania Common Cause, filed a “motion to dismiss Judicial Watch’s claims, saying these voters aren’t ineligible, they are just inactive.”
As of October 2, the case was still ongoing. And, given the importance of Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes at this pivotal moment, that’s unfortunate.
