How Voting by Mail Leads to Cheating

Vote by Mail Schemes Designed to Cheat

Sixty-five percent of Americans believe ‘mail-in-voting’ leads to cheating, according to an October 2021 Rasmussen Poll.

Before the 2020 Election, Democrats pushed for mail-in-voting to make cheating easier. For that same reason, they have enacted 'automatic voter registration' and 'same-day voter registration.' The ACLU, the Brennan Center, and many other leftist organizations funded by 'dark money' coerced states to ignore laws designed to stop election fraud, e.g., to require witness signatures or ballot envelope postmarks. Another part of the conspiracy was to overwhelm poll workers with hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots on election night so that even the most conscientious official would not have time to verify voter signatures.


The Jimmy Carter-James Baker Commission

In 2005, the Jimmy Carter-James Baker Commission on Federal Election Reform found that mailing in absentee ballots “remains the largest source of potential voter fraud.” Carter and Baker concluded, “It is not the magnitude of voter fraud. In close or disputed elections, and there are many, a small amount of fraud could make the margin of difference. Invalid voter files, which contain ineligible, duplicate, fictional, or deceased voters, are an invitation to fraud.”

Carter and Baker recommended that all Americans be required to show photo ID to vote. They stated that voting by mail was wide open to fraud, such as intimidation, vote-buying, and voter impersonation. Registers of voters were full of dead people, fictitious characters, duplications, and those who had moved away, which the commission declared is easy to exploit when voting is by mail.

According to a study from MIT in the 2008 Election, mail-in voting failed 21% of the time. Four million voters requested absentee ballots but never received one; three million absentee ballots mailed by voters never arrived at the election office.


New York Times Report on Absentee Voting Error and Fraud

The New York Times published a report by journalist attorney Adam Liptak in 2012, entitled ‘Error and Fraud at Issue as Absentee Voting Rises.’ It proclaimed that Republicans and Democrats agree that mail-in votes are “less likely to be counted, more likely to be compromised and more likely to be contested than votes cast in a voting booth.”

There is no doubt, the Times asserted, that voting by mail “increases the potential for fraud, and, in fact, “The flaws of absentee voting raise questions about the most elementary promises of democracy.”

Liptak wrote: “Election administrators have a shorthand name for a central weakness of voting by mail. They call it granny farming.” This refers to Democrat activists “helping” voters in nursing homes. The dependent elderly "can be subjected to subtle pressure, outright intimidation, or fraud. The secrecy of their voting is easily compromised. And their ballots can be intercepted both coming and going. Absentee ballots also make it much easier to buy and sell votes. In recent years, courts have invalidated mayoral elections in Illinois and Indiana because of fraudulent absentee ballots."

Heather Gerken, Dean of Yale Law School and an acknowledged expert on elections, was quoted: “You could steal some absentee ballots or stuff a ballot box or bribe an election administrator or fiddle with an electronic voting machine. That is why all the evidence of stolen elections involves absentee ballots.”

Sure enough, in the 2016 and 2018 elections, 16 million ballots mailed in vanished into thin air, according to the Election Assistance Commission of the United States government, over ten million in 2018.

England, France, and Europe

In England, massive mail-in voter fraud in 2004 led to eliminating voting by mail altogether. In Birmingham alone, 40,000 fraudulent votes were mailed in on absentee ballots, all for leftist candidates, of course. Since then, English voters must show up in person with a photo ID.

In Corsica, massive vote fraud, where hundreds of thousands of deceased individuals cast ballots in 1975 and far more sold their votes for cash, resulted in France eliminating absentee voting.

Merely putting a serial number on absentee ballots caused corporate embargoes of the American state of Georgia. Only a quarter of European countries allow any absentee voting whatsoever. In the few countries that permit it, nearly all mandate that you pick up your ballot in person with a photo ID. In most, you must prove that you will be either hospitalized or serving in the military on election day.


The United States Postal Service

Any vote by mail plot depends on the U.S. Postal Service. The USPS states its goal for mail delivery is a 96% success rate. It accepts a failure rate of 4% - or more. Remember that 4% is greater than the margin of victory in ten states (124 electoral votes in toto) in the 2016 presidential election.

Post office employees across the country have been busted for voter fraud, most recently in West Virginia, Mississippi, Ohio, Alabama, New Jersey, Kentucky, and Washington. Their activities have included altering absentee ballots; snatching them out of the mail, filling them out, taking them in; voting for people who moved; throwing away ballots gathered in largely conservative neighborhoods. Let us not forget it is estimated that employees of the post office vote 95% for Democrats. Hardly a group that is known for neutrality or impartiality. Democrats want to put them in charge of ALL our ballots.


Absentee Voting is Not the Same Thing as the Mass Mailing Out of Ballots

To vote in absentia, you must personally request a ballot from your local supervisor of elections. You must complete it yourself, sign it, and sign the return envelope. If your signature does not match your voter registration signature on file, your ballot will be rejected. Some states also require another person to swear on an affidavit that they witnessed you sign your ballot. When you request an absentee ballot, precautions ensure you do not also vote in person. That is absentee voting.

What Democrats did in 2020 and plan to do from now on is far beyond that. They mailed out actual ballots to every registered voter, alive or dead, with a current address on file or not, without being asked. In Los Angeles County alone, 1.5 million people were registered to vote who had moved away or were dead, and at least 3.5 million in California.


Voter Registration

I would guess thirty million illegal aliens live inside our borders. Most Democrat-run states, such as California, grant driver's licenses and automatically register them to vote in our elections. The fine print says they ought not vote, but it is on the honor system. California does not check to see if illegals vote or not. In a 2016 federal investigation of election fraud, California and other Democrat-dominated states refused to cooperate.

A study by Pew Research - even back in 2012 - found that 12% of all voter registrations in the United States were invalid. Millions of dead persons were still listed as alive. Millions of voters were registered in multiple states. Twelve million voters were registered to vote at addresses where they no longer lived. I can assure you it is far worse now. In 379 U.S. counties, more voters are registered than adults residing there.


Phantom Voters

‘Phantom Voting’ is a new term to describe an emerging artform of impersonating voters. Using state-of-the-art computer programs, Democrats create lists of real people who never vote—and vote for them. One such list showed 265,000 registered voters in just one state who never vote. That is why we have heard so many stories from the 2020 Election of people who showed up to vote for the first time and were told, “You already voted by mail.” Democrats also track people who move but are still registered to vote at old addresses, even in states where they no longer live—and vote for them.

One leftist billionaire bought a list of voter rolls every month for a year. One state in the Midwest gave a group of Democrats online access to their voter database for the month before the election of 2020. Eyewitnesses have signed affidavits that election officials were in constant contact by cell phone with Democrat operatives on election night discussing how many votes were needed, and voila! Phantom votes appeared like magic—just enough to put Beijing Biden over the top in the middle of the night.
