  • Talks collapsed on a deal to let Pennsylvania counties open mail ballots before Election Day

    HARRISBURG — Negotiations between the Republican-led legislature and Gov. Tom Wolf to let counties begin opening mail ballots in Pennsylvania before Election Day appeared to collapse Wednesday, setting up a potential nightmare scenario that some fear could leaving the state counting millions of ballots for days after Nov. 3. The Democratic governor and legislative leaders had been negotiating behind closed doors as recently as Tuesday to change the election code after months of inaction. But the General Assembly adjourned Wednesday and is not scheduled to reconvene until Nov. 10, a week after the election. In adjourning, Republicans turned away pleas...
  • Mail-in Voting Will Not Prevent a Trump Victory

    Most people supporting President Trump in this election are confident that he will get more votes in 2020 than he did in 2016, but they fear that fraudulent mail-in ballots will steal or delay the election results. After analyzing state voting laws -- and the 2016 electoral map -- I feel confident in saying that neither is a likely outcome. First, only ten states mail ballots to every voter on their registration rolls. Those states have faced justified criticism for risking their results' integrity because voter rolls are outdated and make verifying identity difficult. But under the Electoral College system,...
  • 47% Of Biden Supporters Will Vote By Mail; 86% Of Trump Votes Will Be In Person: What This Means For The Election

    Perhaps the most notable observation from the latest Bank of America Fund Manager Survey is the finding that 74% of respondents believe that a contested election is the biggest reason for volatility in 4Q, and that 61% of Wall Street professionals believe the election will be contested. Consistent with this, 44% of respondents in a parallel survey targeting FX and Rates investors found that 44% of respondents expected uncertainty to linger for up to a month if not longer—still a considerable share. Yet even as the market is setting up for the possibility of greater volatility, it now appears...
  • Pennsylvania has rejected nearly 375,000 mail-in ballot applications so far

    Nearly 90% of rejected applications were duplicate requests. Pennsylvania has rejected hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballot applications this election year, with the vast majority of those rejections occurring because of duplicate ballot requests from voters in the state. The state "has rejected 372,000 requests for mail-in ballots," with "more than 90% of those applications, or about 336,000," occurring due to duplicate requests, ProPublica reported this week. According to ProPublica, the significant number of duplicate applications came about largely due to voters having requested a general election ballot during the state's primary election as well as closer to the general...
  • Don’t Pay Attention To Media Spin Of Massive Early Voting In Texas

    Early voting is shifting from in-person to mail-in — a shift that should subside as a share of overall votes as Election Day approaches. There’s a prevailing theme out of Texas that the state is turning blue, that the inevitability of the demographic and cultural shift will lead the Lone Star State back into the Democratic column, as it was for most of its history as a state. This narrative is advanced by the media, Democrats, and even some Republicans, since the idea of a competitive Texas raises money and gets attention. In early October, the Biden campaign announced it...

    Almost 1,000 absentee ballots are sitting in a locked bin somewhere in the Guilford County Board of Elections waiting to be processed. At least two voters in Greensboro, North Carolina, part of Guilford County, had no idea their ballots were sitting in that pile. incent Gager, a 48-year-old Black man, and his 83-year-old father Nathaniel mailed in their ballots on September 4. They wanted to vote by mail to avoid exposure to Covid-19. Over a month later, neither man had any idea their ballot had been listed as "pending cure" -- which meant there was something wrong with them that...

    GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — Jim Kellog was walking his dog Monday morning when he found a pile of mail on the side of the road on Vista Grande. “It wasn’t in a stack, it was scattered… But it would have been enough to fit in your hand if it was stacked neatly,” says Kellog. He picked up some of the mail, to find six ballots. “One I found across the street… It had been driven over several times,” says Kellog. Kellog says this discovery is a big concern, and casts doubt on how secure mail-in ballots really are. “I called...

    Ann Mintz and Clifford Wagner have been struggling with indecision about the election for weeks. Their angst isn’t over whom to vote for — the Philadelphia couple are Democrats who support Joe Biden. It’s about how, precisely, they should cast their ballots. They voted by mail without hesitation in the state’s June primary. But now there are new stresses. Will a slowdown at the U.S. Postal Service make ballots arrive too late? Will technical mishaps filling out ballots lead to the vote not getting counted? Or, in one even more complicated but possible scenario, would their mail votes be tallied...

    A Postal Service mail carrier in New Jersey was arrested Wednesday for allegedly discarding mail, including 99 general election ballots. Nicholas Beauchene was charged with one count of delay, secretion, or detention of mail and one count of obstruction of mail. He faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine for the delay charge, and up to six months in prison and a $6,000 fine for obstruction. The discarded ballots were addressed to residents of West Orange, N.J., U.S. Attorney Craig Carpentino said. According to documents filed in the U.S. District Court for the District...

    The Washington, D.C., Board of Elections (DCBOE) is instructing residents who receive mail-in ballots for previous residents of their apartments or homes to mark the ballots "return to sender" and put them back in the mail after numerous reports of voters getting such ballots in error. The misaddressed ballots are a symptom of a common problem for many boards of elections around the country -- outdated voter rolls that include people who are dead or have changed addresses. The DCBOE responded on Twitter Wednesday to several tweets from voters who said they got mail-in ballots addressed to previous residents of...

    Neither Joe Biden nor debate moderator Chris Wallace seems to believe that vote fraud with mail-in ballots is a real issue. They both made that clear in Tuesday night’s presidential debate. “Nobody has established at all there is a fraud related to the mail-in ballot,” Biden claimed. Chris Wallace asserted: “The biggest problem with mail-in voting is not fraud, historically.”

    The New York City Board of Elections is blaming a vendor for an egregious error on absentee ballots mailed to voters in Brooklyn that could cause their votes to be thrown out–even if they follow the rules to the letter. The reason is that the absentee ballots were sent out with return envelopes that were mismatched and bear the names and addresses of other voters so that if the person signs the envelope with their own name it won’t be counted as the signature would not match the name on the mistakenly sent return envelope.Incorrect return envelope image via...

In August, Mark Joseph Stern wrote at Slate that Trump was planning to subvert the U.S. Postal Service to prevent ballots from reaching their destinations in time. Amanda Marcotte has a lengthy essay in Salon, detailing all the nefarious means Trump and his supporters will employ to this end.Vanity Fair recently detailed the planning Democrats are undertaking to thwart Trump’s plots.

That is not true." https://www.instagram.com/p/CFS3SloAjLN/?utm_source=ig_embed She...

The rulings from last week include:** The Green Party candidate was struck from the ballot** Ballots will be accepted UP TO THREE DAYS after the election until November 9th** Poll workers must serve voters in the county where they live — this protects far left districts where fraud is most likely to occur If ballots are accepted until Friday November 6th it is clear now that Pennsylvania will not have their numbers in at least until November 9th, a Monday.Democrats will do anything to...
