VINCE COGLIANESE: There’s Only One Way To Avert An Election Disaster — Open The Polls
This fall, experts predict upwards of 156 million voters will cast a ballot for either Joe Biden or Donald Trump.In 43 states and the District of Columbia, Americans are being at least discouraged from voting in person. Authorities — under the cover of coronavirus shutdowns — are shuttering polling places and urging citizens to vote by mail.The New York Times estimates that nearly 80 million people will now rely on the postal service to select their next president. In other words: more than half of all votes will be cast by mail. […]In the New York City Democratic primary alone, nearly 84,000 voters had their ballots disqualified. That’s one out of every four voters.And between 2012 and 2018, the Federal Election Commission reports, 28.3 million mail-in ballots simply disappeared.And that’s not even counting whatever ballots get manipulated through fraud.Now imagine what this will look like come November 3rd. If there’s even a whiff of evidence that a battleground state screwed up its election results, Americans should prepare for vicious court battles which will make the Florida recount look like an episode of “Judge Judy.”And Democrats are going to play for keeps.
