Former Top Election Official Warns of Mass Mail-In Vote

Former Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson is slamming current SOS Jocelyn Benson for sending almost 8 million unsolicited ballots to voters. Johnson said that this could be illegal and sets the stage for fraud.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

Michigan’s former top elections official said that Democrats’ decision to send unsolicited absentee ballot applications to nearly 8 million voters may violate state laws.

Former Republican secretary of state Ruth Johnson said her successor, Democrat Jocelyn Benson, may have made an “illegal” decision that “threatens the integrity of elections” by ordering state officials to distribute millions of mail-in ballot applications. Benson’s decision contradicted legal precedent and the secretary of state’s own election manual, which mandates that “clerks may not mail absentee voter applications without having received a verbal or written request,” according to Johnson.

“For decades, getting applications to voters has been the job of local clerks. What Benson is doing is possibly illegal—I think it is,” Johnson told the Washington Free Beacon. “It oversteps and threatens the integrity of our elections.”

President Donald Trump criticized Benson’s decision in a May tweet, calling her a “rogue Secretary of State.” While the comment received pushback from Democrats, local and state officials have expressed concerns that expanded mail-in voting opens the door to fraud in an important swing state. Allegan County clerk Bob Genetski (R.) told the Free Beacon that Benson has “made it a lot easier for people to take advantage of the system” by circumventing local election officials who have a specialized knowledge of voters in their area. He called the situation “extremely frustrating,” saying that state officials are not well-positioned to prevent fraud.

The fraud mentioned by Johnson were reports that a 16-year-old received a ballot along with a person who was not a citizen.

If the Demoncraps don’t cheat they can’t win. They can’t push their agenda fair and square, so they load the ballot box with fraudulent votes.

If we are not careful, the 2020 election will be the most fraudulent election this country has ever seen. The Democrats know there is no way they can win legally, so they will do anything, legal or illegal to win.

Every one asking the ligitimate possibilities of fraudulent activity
about the election. My question is, who’s the responsible for the lookout and real honcho. All I see and hear are just the commotion. We need Names. Let the responsible person be outed.Name of every state in the Election Commission and remind him of her that we the public can sue her for any illigal impropriety they hold the office.

So if I understand this article these mail-in ballots are being sent out without anyone requesting them. Therefore if I get a mail-in ballot addressed to my house/apartment/condo I am within my right to complete that ballot and mail it in to be counted for whatever election is being held at that particular point in time. So if I receive a ballot for the people that used to live in the house/apartment/condo that I currently occupy there is no way to prove that I, even though my name is not the person named on that mail-in ballot, can complete that ballot, mail it in and then go to the Polls and cast another vote using my own name. Is this what these people are letting themselves in for and do they not see this as a possibility for fraud? What about if the Post Office delivers my mail-in ballot to the wrong house, can the people that received my ballot by mistake just fill it out and mail it in as if they were me? Then I go to the Polls and find out that their records show that I already voted and not for the person I wanted to vote for. Now you get into having more people voting then actually live in that city. This reminds me of a quote that was attributed to Al Capone. He was supposed to have said about the Chicago Election, “Vote Early and Vote Often.” The democrat/Leftists/Liberals/Socialists may not have a monopoly on stupid but they have certainly elevated it to an art form.

Exactly what benson is trying to do — create an easy path for voter fraud. I believe every state run by demonRATS will try the same thing. There needs to be a remedy for this found and implemented long before November. NO mail-in ballots except for military personnel and you must show PHOTO ID , proof of residence and proof of citizenship before being allowed to vote.
