As Democrats across the nation push for mail-in voting leading up to the November general election, President Trump has announced his support to get rid of ballot harvesting.

Trump took to Twitter to rip ballot harvesting, warning voters that it is a process that is rampant with Fraud.

Trump also encouraged voters that getting rid of ballot harvesting is critical to having fair and honest elections in the United States.

What is vote harvesting?

It is a process that allows workers, including partisan activists who can tamper with votes, to collect absentee or mail-in ballots and drop them off at polling locations.

Critics argue that partisan activists sometimes tamper with ballots before dropping them off at the polling locations.

Because the actual voter doesn’t go to the poll and validate their vote with an ID, harvested votes have historically been at the center of political controversy.
