Many swing states are working overtime to make it “easy” for people to vote this 2020.
They seem to think most Americans are unable to simply go to a polling place.
Some have forced ballot harvesting and extended absentee ballot deadlines.
Democrats even filed a lawsuit to loosen the rules in Maine—but their Superior Court came back with this answer:
The Maine Superior Court dealt a blow to organizations and voters who are looking to relax state laws dealing with absentee voting, including those involving third parties turning in ballots and the state’s Election Day deadline for receiving them.
Justice William R. Stokes denied the plaintiff’s request for a preliminary injunction that would have blocked state officials from enforcing the current laws, claiming that state interests — including the desire to prevent voter fraud — outweigh any burdens that may be imposed on voters.
The court knocked down rules that would have allowed cash for ballots, or ballot harvesting.
They also pushed back on attempts to extend the deadline for turning in ballots after Election Day.
Many have expressed concerns that mail-in ballots—along with ballot harvesting—could lead to widespread voter fraud.
The Maine Superior Court certainly thinks so, and is preventing these practices in their state.
Reports have revealed that some political operatives seek to gather up as many ballots as they can.
They can either coerce voters into voting a certain way or get empty ballots to fill in on their own.
With longer deadlines, it makes it even easier for these fraudsters to sway elections, even after the results are in.
The only way to prevent massive fraud—besides court victories—is to guard the right to vote.
If enough Americans flood the polls, then the real election results would be a mountain too high for cheaters to climb.
But when too many Americans decide to stay home—or worse vote from home—it gives crooks an easy opening.
- Maine knocked down attempts at ballot harvesting and extended deadlines.
- The Superior Court rejected these moves, over concerns with voter fraud.
- Ballot harvest is made easier thanks to mail-in ballots and longer deadlines.
