In a 5-3 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to reinstate the Wisconsin absentee ballot deadline extension ordered by a lower court earlier this year and kept the deadline established by Wisconsin law in place. As a result, absentee ballots must be received by election day to be counted. This is another victory for the integrity of November's election.Read more
As Election Day approaches, the serious election administration problems associated with the rapid increase of voting by-mail continue. These issues have been predicted by election experts on the right and left for many months, including the Lawyers Democracy Fund, but liberal pundits have continued to push voting by mail as the only way to vote this fall:
The COVID-19 public health crisis has led to a dramatic increase in the demand for mail voting. While Lawyers Democracy Fund (LDF) asserts that the best and most secure way to cast a ballot is in person at a polling location, LDF understands the necessity for certain voters to have the option to vote by mail. However, when states and jurisdictions attempt to increase the volume of mail voting without proper election infrastructure or without maintaining important election integrity safeguards, LDF sees no greater threat to safe, honest, and secure elections. . . .
Voting in person at a polling location decreases the chances of a ballot getting thrown out for simple errors. Nationwide, hundreds of thousands of mail ballots were rejected in 2018 because of mail delays, minor technical defects, and voter errors – issues that do not occur with in-person voting. Mail ballots are three times as likely to be rejected for various reasons than ballots cast in person, making voting in person a far more effective method of voting to ensure one’s vote actually counts.Read more
The prevailing narrative pushed by the Left is that the expansion of vote-by-mail should take place indiscriminately without additional safeguards to protect against fraud.
In response, the Republican National Committee has been fighting to preserve the integrity of our elections. Just last week, the RNC experienced victories in Arizona, Iowa, Maine, New Hampshire, North Carolina, and Ohio.Read more
Voting is officially underway for the 2020 general election across the country. In states like Pennsylvania, there is concern about how recent changes to state law will affect the election, especially when considering the numerous problems that happened during the primary earlier this year. In both the District of Columbia and in New York City, voting already seems to be just as fraught with issues as it was during the primaries.Read more
As November approaches, Democrats should be starting to realize that their push to implement universal vote-by-mail may not have been such a good idea. A large number of ballots have been lost or rejected, and "emergency" changes to election laws under the guise of the COVID-19 pandemic put mail-in ballots at an even greater risk of not being counted. Recent allegations of vote fraud in Minnesota and Texas show just how dangerous the combination of expanding universal vote-by-mail and legalizing ballot harvesting could be to the security of our elections.Read more
According to a recent analysis by the Associated Press, increased voting by mail (VBM) could lead to an unprecedented number of rejected ballots in key battleground states this November. Millions of voters are expected to vote by mail for the first time this election due to the COVID-19 pandemic.Read more
In a recent New York Post article entitled "Confessions of a voter fraud: I was a master at fixing mail-in ballots," an anonymous Democratic operative outlined his past involvement in voter fraud schemes to the Post's Jon Levine. The article comes as more Americans are concerned about the potential for voter fraud in light of increased mail voting in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.Read more
Earlier today, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy testified before the Senate Homeland Security and Government Accountability Committee regarding recent attacks he has received over his management of the U.S. Postal Service since becoming Postmaster General a little over 2 months ago. Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-WI) called the hearing in an effort to give the Postmaster General an opportunity to explain the Post Office's capacity to handle the November election. While DeJoy is scheduled to testify next week before the House Oversight Committee, the hearing is expected to be similar to last month's hearing where Attorney General Bill Barr was berated by House Democrats who were uninterested in letting him answer any of their questions.Read more
As Election Day 2020 gets closer, the United States Postal Service has come under increased scrutiny as voting by-mail has become the reality for more Americans than ever before. However, the increased scrutiny has led to some misleading hot takes by prominent celebrities and Democratic lawmakers that have the potential dangerous consequence of undermining public confidence in the election. Republicans are calling them out as lawmakers prepared to hear from Postmaster General Louis DeJoy at a House Oversight Committee hearing next week.Read more
