Democrats may very soon regret pushing mail-in voting. From the stories we’ve seen, it’s a mess. There are accusations of ballot harvesting, questions of fraud with absentee ballots, and even ballots ending up in a ditch or being discarded.
The New York City Board of Elections recently mailed out nearly half a million absentee ballots ahead of Election Day, yet some voters are already reporting problems with their ballots that could invalidate someone’s vote.
Voters in Brooklyn said they have received mislabeled “official absentee ballot envelopes.” Their ballot envelopes bear the wrong name and address on them. If a person signs their name to a faulty ballot envelope, the ballot would be voided. Even a CNN reporter had issues with his own ballot and spoke out about it.
“I just got my New York mail-in ballot today and the security envelope I’m supposed to put it in and sign has some other guy’s name and address on it. Gothamist is already reporting other cases, so this is looking to be a widespread problem,” CNN Reporter Nathan McDermott tweeted.
So far, voters in Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Carroll Gardens, Crown Heights, Clinton Hill, Bushwick, Flatbush, Brooklyn Heights, and Sunset Park have reported the issue. With problems like these, more doubt is warranted in how voters may be affected. The BOE has come out to say that they don’t know how to remedy the problem but are determining the best way to make sure people who receive erroneous envelopes receive new ones before the election.
That isn’t even the worst of the mail-in ballot errors. Some NYC voters received mail-in ballots marked for military use, despite never having served in the military. In a NY Post, many received official military absentee ballots instead of a military/absentee ballot, leaving many worried that their votes might not be properly tallied.
CNN is saying voters will receive new ballots, but how many will try to double vote with the old ballot? That’s 100,000 extra ballots. The media and radical left are trying to get away with small amounts of vote inaccuracies in close races.
Talk about a rigged election. But hey, that’s exactly what the Democrats want.
