CBS Mail-In Voting Experiment Raises Cause for Concern

An experiment on mail-in voting conducted by CBS has raised some serious issues that could lead to serious issues in November.

According to The Daily Wire:

Because of the coronavirus, 2020 marks a presidential election in which mail-in voting could play a pivotal role, for which reason “CBS News This Morning” co-host Tony Dokoupil conducted an experiment with a fake P.O. Box to determine if ballots were adequately counted.

Dokoupil sent out 100 mock ballots in the Philadelphia area, using the same size envelope, weight, and class of mail to simulate genuine mail-in votes, albeit without the expedited “Election Mail” insignia. After the post office box was set up, 100 more faux ballots were sent out.

“We’re gonna see somewhere between probably 80 and 100 million voters receiving their ballot that way,” a former Arizona election official told Dokoupil.

After a week, 97% of the ballots Dokoupil mailed had been returned. “Three simulated persons, or 3% of voters, were effectively disenfranchised by mail by giving their ballots a week to arrive,” CBS noted. “In a close election, 3% could be pivotal.” Even four days after mailing the second round of fake ballots, 21% of the fake votes had failed to materialize. Almost half of states allow voters to receive ballots less than half-a-week before the election.

When Dokoupil inquired about the missing mail the USPS worker was unable to locate anything.

So, even tests BY THE LEFT show that the mail-out voting is fraudulent. NOBODY can honestly advocate such fraud!

WHAT IS TO STOP A MAIL CARRIER FROM DESTROYING MULTIPLE BALLOTS! EXAMPLE YOU LIVE IN A CONSERVATIVE STATE AND YOUR MAIL CARRIER IS A SCREAMING LIBERAL DEMOCRAT SO THEY KNOW MOST BALLOTS WILL BE CONSERVATIVE VOTES! WHAT IS TO STOP THEM FROM MAKING SURE YOUR VOTE IS NEVER COUNTED! HERE IN LIBERAL WASHINGTON STATE IN THE PRIMARY WE HAD TO SIGN OUR NAME ON THE OUTSIDE ENVELOPE AND MARK WHETHER WE WERE DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN! GUESS WHERE MY VOTE PROBABLY WENT AS A CONSERVATIVE!

That sounds like grounds for a lawsuit to me. They can’t force you to disclose your voting preferences, that is against the law.

Actually, I think that Ron is 100% correct, I would get together 5 people and file a class action. I would find some kind of actual “loss” to claim. Loss of right to privacy is one, however in most states and counties the voter registration is public information available to anyone to begin with.
The reason is that the registrar has to be able to give someone a Dem or Repub ballot for primaries. However such information should be considered private and personal unless disclosed by the voter!
If you can prove that any kind of mislead or misdirection happened to any 5 people because of that open signature and affiliation then the sky is the limit.

They know they haven’t earned reelection, and since all of their scams and attempted coup, they will likely get voted out in record numbers. The mail in vote is just their newest attempt to cheat the people.

This was done using FAKE po box, which means a legitimate address is not needed, imagine how many will be repeat voters, voting multiple times using different addresses. The entire thing is a blatant attempt by the democrats to cheat again, just new tactics.

There is NO PURPOSE except Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) purposes and foreign travel purposes to allow ANY mail in ballot EVER.
US military, overseas corporate assigned and expats who live abroad have good reason, but then again some may NOT be eligible as they have no US voter registration to vote from.
No person should be allowed to vote by mail in from their home in the place of registration UNLESS a notary witnesses the signature. That would end all question.
Another possible way would be that the US mail do a random sample of the ballots and actually INVESTIGATE voter fraud randomly.
Regardless, the law needs to be clear in every state, voter fraud of any kind or aiding in voter fraud of any kind should PERMANENTLY end anyone’s right to vote in any election ever, or to serve in any way in politics or to even volunteer in political campaigns, or for that matter to DONATE to any campaign in any way.

Mail-lin voting should not be allowed as it can very easily be fake and therefore, a serious cause for concern! Voting should be conducted as it always has been, in various locations and any sent by mail should be destroyed as it’s impossible to know who actually sent it and how many times the same people sent out a ballot under another name!

When even the democratic propaganda machine media says there is a fraud problem with mail in voting, you know the DC left is definitely cheating.
