Absentee ballot shenanigans.. crowd source examples?

Last edited Tue Dec 4, 2018, 11:21 PM - Edit history (1)

What if the actions taken in N.C. District 9 were repeated elsewhere?

Alarm bells ring for me when I hear about unexpectedly high numbers of absentee ballots being requested, or rejected, in multiple locations around the country.

The first time I heard it, I was glad, assuming it was people determined to contain Trump’s power.

But I got wiser and more wary of good news.

Long lines, it turns out, don’t always mean high interest. Sometimes it means that machines are broken or absent, or electronic poll books are shut down.

So.. where were there strange reports of absentee ballot anomalies?

High rejection rate sim democratic counties... but also, several voters found to be deceased... and 149 ballots sent out but returned as undeliverable.

2. Florida - Palm Beach matches signatures, others don't..affects youth and PoC disproportinately

“the culprit was a driver’s license signature, hastily squiggled on an electronic signature pad two years earlier.“

Electronic signatures? OMG who pays attention to those? Hard to be consistent.

6. NC 09, not NC 08

I think the ratforkers are manipulating the vote in ways we haven't even dreamed of yet.
