Maybe the mail-in ballots the Democrats are so committed to substituting for actual ballots submitted in person at an authorized polling place should carry a warning that reads, “Voting by mail may be hazardous to the 2020 election.”
Special agents with the US Postal Service discovered undelivered mail in trash bags placed on the curb for pickup outside the home of a postal employee in Baldwin, Pennsylvania.
The agents with Postal Service’s Office of Inspector General were responding to a report about undelivered mail on Sunday outside the employee’s home. The employee works at the Mount Oliver post office, according to a statement from Postal Service.“USPS OIG Special Agents recovered several different classes of mail, including business mail, flats, and small amount of first class mail,” Special Agent Scott Balfour told CNN in a statement. “We expect to perform a piece count of the mail today, and make arrangements to have to mail delivered to customers as soon as feasible.”
Stories like this one are hardly unique — see here —but the party stands to the most lose by ignoring them is the Democrats, who will vote by mail at a rate more than twice that of Republicans. With three quarters of voters planning cast their ballot by mail, the stakes could not be higher.
Not all of problems inherent in mail-in voting on this scale arise out of malfeasance — fraud or sloth. As noted here:
In Virginia … 1,000 voters who applied for absentee ballots received multiple ballots. … [O]ffsetting that, is the issue of “naked ballots” — mail ballots that arrive without inner “secrecy envelopes.” According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Pennsylvania, which uses a two-envelope mail ballot system, reports concerns that the problem could cost Joe Biden that all-important battleground state.
Ordinarily a statement like “politics kills” is over-the-top. But the 2020 election may reveal the degree to which that observation is true.
