Legal fights inject chaos into states’ absentee ballots

Legal fights inject chaos into states’ absentee ballots

Lawsuits being fought across the country are colliding with state deadlines to mail absentee ballots to voters, creating delays and stirring up new uncertainty over the ability of major swing states to handle the anticipated surge of mail-in ballots this fall.

In Pennsylvania, ongoing lawsuits over the Green Party candidate appearing on the ballot have prevented counties from sending mail-in ballots to voters. Wisconsin narrowly avoided absentee ballot chaos on Monday in a 4-3 state Supreme Court decision preventing the need for counties to reprint hundreds of thousands of ballots set to be mailed this week.

There also are several states fighting over absentee ballot applications that were mailed to voters, in some cases forcing voters to reapply to receive an absentee ballot.

The sprawling election litigation stretching from coast-to-coast underscores the contentious nature of an election being conducted in the midst of a pandemic, which has prompted many states to change their election rules. But the lawsuits also can have real-world side effects as voters have less time to return ballots ahead of an Election Day where going to the polls is as complicated as ever.

“We’re going to see higher turnout than we’ve ever seen before in the middle of the pandemic. It’s important for voters to get as much time as possible and do it early, and if ballots aren’t printed yet that’s impossible,” said David Becker, founder of the nonpartisan Center for Election Innovation and Research.

Election lawsuits aren’t the only source of confusion surrounding absentee voting. The US Postal Service sent a mailer to all households across the country about mail-in voting that contained inaccurate information, leading a bipartisan array of election officials to publicly rebuke the mailers.................

Romans 12:16-21
Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceable with all.  Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.  No, if your enemies are hungry, feed them, if they are thirsty, give them something to drink...Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

We need a Constitutional amendment that eliminates mail-in voting, restricts absentee ballots, and which also restricts ALL voting to in-person appearances by voters at the polls on election day while bearing sufficient ID.

I guess I can dream...

Only problem is that there are people who are physically homebound for medical reasons that still should be able to vote.

The rats see the writing on the wall and will now begin sowing the impression the electoral system is in chaos, delegitimizing any Trump victory.

Which should backfire if Doofus somehow wins.  :shrug:

The rat efforts to delegitimize the election should be viewed as in inverse proportion to Doofus's presidential prospects.
