Does Mail-In Voting Lead to Fraud?
President Trump tweeted out about postponing the election because he believes they're going to be rigged. Here's the tweet.
First of all, there has been no proof that mail-in voting leads to anything inaccurate and fraudulent. If you believe it does, posting anything from a news source other than something similar to Breitbart isn't going to mean anything. So how about the Brookings Insitute? According to their website they are:
The Brookings Institution is a nonprofit public policy organization based in Washington, DC. Our mission is to conduct in-depth research that leads to new ideas for solving problems facing society at the local, national and global level.
Straight from the Brookings Institute, here is what they say about mail-in voting:
According to the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University, there is no evidence that mail balloting increases electoral fraud as there are several anti-fraud protections built into the process designed to make it difficult to impersonate voters or steal ballots. These provisions include requiring people requesting absentee ballots to be registered voters, mailing ballots to the official address listed on voter registration rolls, requiring voter signatures on the external envelope, and having election authorities make sure the ballot came from the address of an actual voter. If a ballot appears questionable, some states use a signature matching technique to verify the signature of the voter.
Yup, no evidence.
So here's the deal. The election is happening. Want your voice to be heard? Be sure to register to vote. The deadline to register in the state of Texas is October 4th. CLICK HERE for all the details.
