The last year has pretty much been an exercise in the futility of mail-in ballots.
Even for the people who maintain that ‘no fraud occurred’ in the 2020 election—mail in ballots were certainly a cause for concern.
If only to avoid the record levels of mistrust which now exist between the people and their elected officials, or to preserve faith in our election system—we should do away with mail-in voting.
Most people agree with this point for these exact reasons, but California marches to the beat of its own drum, and seems to codify every negative consequence into the fabric of the law.
According to the latest reports, California Governor Gavin Newson has signed universal mail-in voting into law in California.
Election fraud has become the law of the land in California, but is anyone actually surprised that the most corrupt state in the union just codified fraud into the law?
Here’s what people are saying:

Californians need to continue to rebel against this tyranny! They should also audit and investigate the tyrant.

Just The News came through with more details:
California “took unprecedented steps to ensure all voters had the opportunity to cast a ballot during the pandemic, and today we are making those measures permanent after record-breaking participation in the 2020 presidential election,” Newsom said in signing the measure.
In a separate tweet, Newsom wrote he signed the law “because we believe in making voting EASIER and for every voice to be heard.”

California officially becomes the latest state to permanently adopt universal voting-by-mail (every voter automatically gets mailed a ballot, though limited in-person voting remains available). As shown on this cartogram, 1/5 of Americans now live in full vote-by-mail states https://t.co/NfZb9JqqXL pic.twitter.com/G3KJWe8P6k

The far-left L.A. Times had this to report:
“Data shows that sending everyone a ballot in the mail provides voters access. And when voters get ballots in the mail, they vote,” Assemblyman Marc Berman (D-Palo Alto), the bill’s author, said during a Senate committee hearing in July.
The law takes effect in January, providing a symbolic counterweight to a handful of other states where access to voting could be significantly curtailed before the 2022 election — a contrast Newsom highlighted in announcing his signature on the bill, and one likely to be echoed by Democrats across the country.
