(The Hill)   The Trump campaign, the RNC, and 4 Pennsylvania Republican members of Congress have sued PA to stop mail-in voting. It's almost like PA is a battleground state and they know they can't win without suppressing the vote   (thehill.com) divider line

lindalouwho: Ain't gonna win that, some states have had mail-in voting for a while already.


But Hillary is colluding with China and Russia to hack the USPS so she can finally be president!

And was caught immediately

How can something be caught that the Dems have maintained doesn't exist? That would be a neat trick.

Examples like this, which you pants-wetting conservatives claim is proof of fraud, instead prove that vote-by-mail works at both detecting fraud attempts and identifying the perpetrators.

Cry harder.


You consider a 20% fraud rate acceptable?

What happens if you hold an election with such a questionable turnout, but it does not go the way you want and Trump wins.  Will you accept the outcome or rant about Russian/Chinese/alien collision for the next four years?
Will you condone a leftist shooting the place up in anger because they saw reports of a bunch of ballots getting dumped? Will you call for endless investigations and recounts?
I suspect it wouldn't go down well with the fark crowd.

We still have people crying foul over the last election when most polls had far fewer issues.
You're mad if you think this isn't going to end in disaster.

Well that changes everything, mail in voting is terrible.  Women shouldn't have the right to vote!

The actual fraud rate was zero.  These bozos got caught because the vote-by-mail system worked.


The fraud occured the moment the ballot was cast so it wasn't a zero rate.

The mail in primary voting here in PA was the most farked up thing I have ever seen.. misprinted ballots all over the place..

My two neighbors, both Democrats who have lived here 20+ years and live in the same household, received ballots with different US and PA rep choices on it.

I was under the impression that individual states control how they hold elections. I can't understand on what grounds a suit could be brought.

It.

RedVentrue: webron: RedVentrue: RFID the mail in ballots.

They don't want to make elections secure, they want to prevent people from voting.  These are the same people who are ignoring foreign interference in our elections.  They want to win, how doesn't matter.  They don't have to attract more votes, if they can prevent people from voting for democrats.

RFID removes the excuse they use to claim vulnerability.


But but but... MARK OF THE BEAST!

Fireproof: Are you implying that Trump won't contest if he loses?


I know you weren't asking me, but I don't think he will. Especially if it's not even close.

I think he wants out.

Absentee voting is not the same as voting by mail. You have to request an absentee ballot. With vote-by-mail every name on the registered voter list gets sent a ballot. If that list has not been updated (and the one in LA, for example, has not been culled in over 20 years), then there will be lots of ballots sent to the last address of people who have died or moved out of state. Collecting these ballots, filling them out with a straight-line Democrat ticket, and handing them in with no checking to see if they are valid is what "ballot harvesting" is all about.

The USCBP and Coast Guard catches all the drugs that cross the border. They are no foreign drugs in America. It's all domestic production. Every time they catch a shipment, that's proof the drug interdiction system works perfectly. None slip through. Amirite?

In 2016, Trump had to sweep FL, MI, PN, WI, MI... Hillary had to just win one of those states and she was in. He swept them. I remember monitoring the returns that night and she came in a bit light on the cities with little reporting from yet the rural counties. It was clear early in the evening that he won and she blew it big time.

It can happen again. Same challenge... Biden wins one and Trump falls.

Biden has a lock on a ton of delegate rich states. Trump sweeps the south.

Hillary barely gave any of those swing states attention because 'she was so far ahead in the national polls.'

I warned America that if Trump was elected, it would be the end of our country, and I was right.
It's already over - you gave it away in 2016. America is done.

Oh, well - she had Emails, and reminded me of my unloving mother, so I wasn't inspired. Cest la vie.


Eat my fark.  I believe in people to do the right thing.  Not for trump to do the right thing, but for the rest of us to do the right thing.  fark you and 'I told you so'.  farking pussy.

I just returned a covid relief check I found in the street. Fell out of someone's mail.

Probably the biggest problem is legal guardians - how many votes does an old folks home get?

Loved the 60 minutes piece last night interviewing  random Jane Blow from Oregon on the pros/cons of mail-in voting. Riveting, top-biatch journalism. 'Try it, you might like it!'

Let's postpone until there's a vaccine. Or boycott until we get a real choice.

WTFDYW: GrogSmash: And thus begins the legal battle of a President who is terrified that he has so royally screwed the pooch that he is going to lose the election.

Only four months to go folks.  Your election process is about to get reamed so badly its going to need a cholostomy bag afterwards.

I'll do walk in voting if I have to. I will be voting. This clown has got to go.


You are assuming walk-in voting will be allowed.

I don't know how, but I am willing to bet that is going to farked over as well, and some system put in place that only favors the rich, sorry, I mean assures the health and safety of the proud working class citizens, while ensuring that fraud is kept to a minimum.

Some sort of expensive prescreening that allows for online voting perhaps?  Also easily rigged.
