New Dem narrative:
Trump trying to steal
The President is right in that Voting Mail for some people in a few states works for some people, but perhaps not everyone in all states.
The state of Oregon says it has been using mail in voting for a long time with no problem. Of course the Democrats think there is no problem because in Oregon the Democrats win every statewide election.
Absentee vs mailout/mail in. The media doesn’t understand the difference.
I wonder what he thinks of Pennsylvania’s vote by mail?
Shockingly it was passed by the Republican Legislature in October. Apparently you have to actually apply for a ballot just like absentee, they aren’t getting mass mailed (though there are rumors Gov. Wolf is going to abuse his COVID emergency powers to do exactly that).
He called it “absentee ballot or mail-in whatever you want to call it”. he’s always supported absentee balloting because you have to request an absentee ballot. Just the usual suspects attempt to muddy the waters again.
Washingontime Times confuses Vote by Mail with Mass Mailing of Ballots to every man, women and cat.
Absentee voting, using the US Postal Service as your medium of transmission, requires that, first the prospective voter REQUESTS the ballot be mailed to his address, then the completed ballot is returned, postmarked BEFORE the date on which the polls are closed. No agent goes around to the addresses and solicits the return of the ballots to the agent, who then shall graciously transport them to the ballot clerk, so-called “ballot harvesting”, a blatantly transparent scheme to juggle the actual ballots received by the county clerk’s office, where the ballots are counted.
Chain of custody of the ballot is very important here, and like the chain of custody of material evidence has to be maintained for medical procedures or legal proceedings, any compromise completely invalidates the possibly corrupted material evidence, and is thus unacceptable and inadmissible.
Now the Dems have no clue what to do ,LOL
Looks as if he is pushing absentee voting, which is legal.
Only thing is..you have to request the ballot.
The wife and I do that here in AZ. Then we take the ballot’S’ to the poling station.
Has he been hacked? Vote by mail is a scheme to get democrats elected by ballot harvesting. To get democrats elected to everything, everywhere.
Well good luck with that.
I’ll be going in person like I have for the last 20+ years, thanks.
Relying on the US Postal Service for our elections is a guaranteed cluster blank.
Requesting an absentee ballot is one thing.
Mailing millions of unsolicited ballots to dead Democrats is quite another.
PS - We all vote Democrat from the grave.
The title of this article is very misleading.
For as long as I can remember Florida has had absentee ballots, if you were not going to be at your voting precinct or could not get there for some reason, you can get the supervisor of elections in your county to send you and absentee ballot once you prove your identity.....for example people with 2 homes or active duty military on deployment use absentee ballots a lot...
The mail in voting the democrats are talking about is to send ballots to everyone on the voter rolls, which would include dead people, people who have moved, etc...which opens up tremendous areas of fraud....
Absentee voting once your request the ballot and prove your identity is fine, the mass mailing out of ballots is totally different and dangerous...
Two reversals in 24 hours--first the "Patriots Wear Masks" email last night, now support for vote by mail.
W T F ?
I remember pre-internet days.
Post Office threw out a cutoff date: Git your mail into the system by mm/dd/yy and we guarantee delivery before Christmas.
Having fun thinking how posties will process a flood of outgoing ballots, the the flood of return ballots, while folks buy Christmas gifts from amazon
This is not a reversal. He has been attacking the mail-in stuff the democrats are trying, sending unsolicited ballots to registered voters.
He has ALWAYS said that current absentee balloting, with safeguards, is acceptable.
This is normally what they accuse Trump of, doing things that discourage people from stuff; here he is working to make sure people understand what he is objecting to, and the media falsely claims he is changing his mind.
