All over the country Americans have been bombarded as of late with two instructions over and over and over and over again:
1) Wash your hands, and…
2) Vote via absentee ballot.
Today’s read is from Hans A. von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation who served as a commissioner on the Federal Election Commission from 2006 to 2007 and is also the former counsel to the assistant attorney general for civil rights at the U.S. Justice Department; and J. Christian Adams and Cleta Mitchell, the president and chairman of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, respectively.
Here’s a brief excerpt and it’s disturbing.
But no one should forget that absentee-ballot voting is vulnerable to intimidation, fraud and chaos as all-mail elections move behind closed doors beyond the oversight of election officials. Not to mention prolonged counting and potentially lengthy delays in certifying questionable results.
