It's a bit more benign than you think, turning in 100 ballots from a retirement home...that's "harvesting".
And yes, others being able to turn in ballots, which by the way is listed on the envelope as to whether the ballot was turned in by someone else, and who that is, leaves a potential for fraud. That is countered by registration, nobody is going to turn in two or more votes in that name, they will be rejected. Each ballot is a legitimate voter, this is just how it can be handled.
So I'm curious, when you read that were you alarmed because it seems to be 250,000 cases of voter fraud? That this is huge scale horrible level of fraud?
In order for an incident of voter fraud to take place, someone would have to somehow get their hands on an unfilled out ballot registered to someone. To make a difference to dems you would have to be able to acquire a republican's ballot, and vote for the democrats and turn it in. They can't be harvested and created out of thin air, they have to represent a real voter. I have not heard of any efforts to talk people out of their ballots as we've seen in North Carolina, and there was a case of this in Texas that was thought to have gotten 40 votes.
The day that anyone reports a case of someone trying to talk a stranger out of their ballot so that they can fill it out and turn it in for them is the day the FBI will be all over it.
Back to North Carolina, where people have been caught red handed, where people that were paid to collect ballots are admitting it, where the republican paid to have this done personally and through his campaign, and where this appears to have been going on successfully for some time.
Can you focus on this case since it's turning out to be real, and be part of a dialog about what we should do?
Bust dems anywhere near as bad as this and people will go to jail.
