Four Stolen Elections: The Vulnerabilities of Absentee and Mail-In Ballots

ballotsAll 50 states have bans on electioneering in and near polling places. By contrast, there are no prohibitions on electioneering in voters’ homes—which is what happens all too often with absentee ballots and voting by mail. This makes voters vulnerable to intimidation and unlawful “assistance,” as well as pressure by candidates, campaign staffers, political party activists, and political consultants—all of whom have a stake in the outcome of the election—to vote in the campaign’s interests, not their own. Absentee ballots are also more vulnerable to being misdirected, stolen, forged, and altered. This Legal Memorandum details four cases studies of election fraud committed through absentee and mail-in voting.

Key Takeaways:

1. Universal absentee or mail-in voting leaves America’s electoral system vulnerable to fraud, forgery, coercion, and voter intimidation.
2. Uncovering instances of voter fraud is difficult, and those who commit fraud are often able to get away without repercussions.
3. Preventing voter fraud is crucial for protecting election integrity, ensuring public confidence in the election system, and maintaining a stable democratic republic.

Mail-in voter fraud IS very real and especially in cities and states that are run by Progressively Communist Democrats. Of course finding out about 6 months after an election is way too late. This election more than ever is probably the most important one in our country’s history. The voters must decide to keep our country’s traditions and freedoms or forever suffer under the servitude of Socialism/Communism. One has only to look at the citizens of those types of countries and then you know why the ALL WANT TO COME HERE. But people are stupid and many lack common sense… Read more »

I predict that sans a blowout victory by one candidate or the other, the results of numerous elections in November won’t be officially determined for months.The election integrity has been compromised so badly that it now poses a very large and real threat to the nation.

If American voters want to lose control of their elections, voting by mail is the ticket! Mail in ballots will open the door to many different avenues of corruption. Democrat communists will win every time! New methods of cheating will be baked into the cake. Verification, missing ballots, late ballots, ballots changing hands many times, dead people voting, dead cats voting, on and on it goes. The doors will be wide open for cheating! Voters need to vote with ID required and in the voting booth!

He that does NOT know history is bound to repeat it. That is why the young ones lean toward socialsm. They don’t know socialism is only the front room of communism. Please tell them or introduce them to people who came here from communist countries!

I have a disease that has mostly kept me at home during Covid 19. But you can bet I’m going to the polls to vote in person. My state required mail in voting in the Primary. I completed my ballot and drove it to the Board of Elections. I wasn’t trusting my ballot to the postal service. Mail in voting is for Dems to steal this election. If our country is turned over to the Dems. We as Republicans will never win again. They will fix it to be so. FACT.

Many Americans are naive and lazy when it comes to understanding how corrupt the Communist Democrats are. Sadly, many Americans live in a time warp. They believe that the propaganda media are professional and patriotic. Nothing is further from the truth!

If anyone believes that a mail in ballot is going to be processed quickly and FAIRLY has fallen down the rabbit hole head first! The dems have been stuffing ballot boxes for decades…LBJ was notorious for doing it. They do it because they get by with it and this mail in scheme is just another tactic to steal another election. The ONLY way to have a FAIR election is to have voter ID, NO early voting and to GO to the polls IN PERSON…employers can not keep you from going to the polls and voting! DO it the RIGHT WAY,… Read more »

Even with fraud votes from Democrat scams, I believe Trump should get elected by majority. I really believe most people are afraid to voice their support of our President because of the Left bully tactics intimidating conservatives but the silent majority Of Republicans and Independents will cast ballots for Trump/Pence. Unfortunately I worry about the other scheme Democrats have done in the past which could cause a problem – that is them “finding boxes of votes suddenly that need to be added to the totals”. And of course those “found” ballots will vote D. Is there anything that can be… Read more »

Great information with the detail attached. It is preposterous to think that a mass mailing of ballots is every going to be viable alternative to voting at a poling place. We all know that, and so do the people who are continuing to push this issue. Those that are yelling the loudest are the ones who have a big stake in manipulating election outcomes. Fortunately I live in Indiana where election protocols are firmly established, and absolutely confined to the counties where voting takes place. I will have an opportunity to vote absentee this year due to a near term… Read more »

I have written and email to our Senators here in Arkansas telling them No mail in Voting.. I am guessing it didn’t do any good. So I will say this… Anyone can see the Comments on Social Media about our President and Joe Biden. There is No way Biden is in the lead.. Numbers don’t lie.. They are trying to get people to believe Biden is in the lead in hopes of getting more Voters interested in him.. Just like they did with Hillary.. So I Hope and Pray there is someone making sure the votes are accurate. Wasn’t there… Read more »

Nothing surprising here. The old joke (unfortunately) of “Vote early, and vote often!” is alive and well. The fact that the Demsheviks are rabidly pushing for universal absentee balloting for all elections everywhere is prima facie evidence of their desire to win elections by any means and without regard for our nation’s electoral integrity.   Here in ☭alifornia, the Demsheviks have already successfully hijacked the election process. In yesteryear, each party would submit its slate of candidates to the electorate in the primary. Then the “winners” of each party’s slate would move forward to the general election under their party’s banner for the electorate… Read more »
