Democrats and their allies in the media keep telling us that there's no risk of fraud with mail-in voting…
Yet… with less than 90 days until election day, it has been revealed that 587,638 incorrect mail-in ballots have been sent to voters in Virginia.
Some of these ballots were even sent to dead people!
The shocking news has been confirmed by multiple news outlets.
This revelation comes as President Trump continues to warn about the risks of mail-in voting, while Democrats and their allies in the media claim it's safe.
Well.. this latest case of mismanagement in Virginia is certainly raising questions about the security and integrity of the November 2020 election!
More details below:
The official explanation is that this was a "misunderstanding" and an "honest mistake," but with the election right around the corner, there is little room for error.
A few thousand votes could determine tight races.
Integrity and transparency are necessary in our election.
Local NBC 12 News confirms the mishap surrounding these 587,638 ballots:
A misunderstanding of Virginia’s independent cities and counties apparently led a nonprofit voter registration group to mail 587,638 absentee ballot applications to Virginia voters that asked them to send the ballot back to the wrong election office.
The Center for Voter Information said the mishap was an honest mistake mainly affecting voters in a handful of localities that share a name: including Fairfax City and Fairfax County, Richmond City and Richmond County, Roanoke City and Roanoke County, and Franklin City and Franklin County.
“We regret the confusion caused in this case,” said Tom Lopach, the CEO of the D.C.-based Voter Participation Center, the sister organization of the Center for Voter Information, which describes itself as “a non-partisan and non-profit organization that works to provide even-handed and unbiased information about candidates and their positions.”
“We take full responsibility,” Lopach said. “We are working with local election officials to correct this at our expense.”
The mass mailing, which involved more than 2.2 million pre-filled absentee ballot applications statewide, sowed confusion for many voters and local election officials, who quickly sought to inform voters it was not coming from an official government source.
“The Virginia Department of Elections has no affiliation with this group nor coordinates with any third-party groups on campaign efforts,” the state elections agency said in a statement. “We are aware that voters in multiple localities that received an absentee ballot application were given pre-paid return envelopes addressed to the incorrect registrar’s office.”
State officials said any applications arriving at the wrong office would be “forwarded immediately to the correct office for processing."
While the group bills itself as a nonpartisan group, a job listing on the website listed the group as a "progressive" group, according to NBC 12.
However, since NBC 12 published the article, the job listing was edited to remove the word "progressive."
In 2016, Hillary Clinton won Fairfax County by approximately 200,000 votes.
Yet... now in 2020, over 500,000 incorrect absentee ballot applications were sent to voters in Fairfax County.
DCist confirms the story:
Fairfax County election officials rushed to reassure voters Thursday after a D.C. non-profit organization mailed residents nearly half a million absentee ballot applications with the wrong return address on them.
“Some [voters] think it’s a scam, some of them think it’s an attempt at voter suppression, when in reality it’s just a third-party group trying to do a mailing and they didn’t do a very good followup,” said Gary Scott, director of elections for Fairfax County.
The Center for Voter Information, a non-profit based in D.C., mailed the applications and said it would rectify errors at its own expense.
“We are aware that some of the mailers may have directed the return envelopes to the wrong election offices, particularly in the Fairfax area of Northern Virginia,” the group wrote in a statement. “We know voters are on high alert as the November election approaches, and we regret adding to any confusion.”
Scott said there were two problems with the absentee ballots. The first was that voters in Fairfax County were issued return envelopes addressed to Fairfax City, which has a separate elections office. The second issue was that the applications were partially filled with voters’ information, and in some cases the information was wrong.
Scott said Fairfax County will work with Fairfax City to get the incorrectly addressed applications to the right place. They could represent a substantial part of the county’s voters. Of the more than 700,000 registered voters in Fairfax County, some 450,000 of them received applications with incorrect ballots. Scott said his office faced a torrent of time-consuming calls from concerned voters.
“We’ve lost all day so far,” he said.
This is just the latest evidence that mail-in voting is not without its risks.
After 3 years of investigating Russia-Russia-Russia, you would think that Democrats would want to take every step possible to secure our election.
However, they appear content to deny the risks that are becoming more apparent with mail-in ballots.
Every American should want our election to be as secure and accurate as possible!
