And the Democrats want this nationwide:
This is what’s in store for the 2020 Presidential election in deep blue states:
“A staggering 25 percent of mail-in ballots cast in Brooklyn for June’s primary elections were declared invalid, it was revealed on Tuesday, as Mayor Bill de Blasio called on the Board of Elections to shape up by November.
More than 120,000 absentee ballots were filed in Kings County for the June 23 primary but about 30,000 were initially disqualified — and it wasn’t the fault of the voters, according to Rodneyse Bichotte, head of the Brooklyn Democratic Party.
Bichotte — also a state assemblywoman whose district includes Flatbush, Ditmas Park and Midwood — said the disqualifying issues included a lack of postmark or late arrival.
The BOE was still untangling the mess six weeks after the primaries and was unable to provide hard citywide figures on Tuesday.
But the Brooklyn debacle suggests a troubling failure in a system that may be relied upon to a elect a president this fall with the pandemic still raging.
“Americans should not have to risk their lives to participate in the most fundamental right of democracy,” said Bichotte, who blamed the snail-mail balloting bungle on a lack of federal funding for the US Postal Service.”
Yeah, sure. Throw more money at incompetence and surely that’ll solve things.
The problem is mail-in voting. We’ve held elections in-person in this country for almost 230 years. We had an election during a civil war, during WW2. There was an influenza pandemic in 1968 that killed over 100,000 Americans and we still held an election that year with in-person voting.
We held an in-person midterm election during the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic. Nobody ever talks about how the 1918 midterms were “illegitimate” or anything like that.
We will be just fine if we hold the election normally in November.
It’s funny, the Democrats have been talking about mail-in voting basically since the Plannedemic began in March, even though the election was still 9 months away at that point:
It’s almost as if that’s been their goal the whole time.
Plus, and I feel like a broken record saying this for the 1000th time: If you allow mass BLM “demonstrations” and riots in the streets, you have zero credibility to lecture people on what is or is not safe “during this pandemic.”
