Citizen's Voice: "The county had not sent out mail-in ballots to voters as of the time the administration reported the alleged problems, last Thursday."

but...

Luzerne County Solicitor: "According to information county solicitor Romilda P. Crocamo released Thursday, the county sent out overseas military and civilian ballots beginning Aug. 25. No other mail-in ballots had been sent out as of Thursday."

Could be because PA has now stated that signatures on the ballots no longer need to match those on the registration rolls - does anyone here find that discerning?

I wonder how many counties in PA as well as other states will show more voters than the number registered.

Did you actually read those stories? I'm not sure what you are saying the "left pretends that it does not and will not happen".

Two of your links were broken - the one from Twitter and the other from AP News.

One story was about "indictments involv[ing] the ballots or applications for ballots of about 38 voters", and it's unclear if they were ever actually cast or counted.

The FactCheck story was noting that the claims of voter fraud or thousands of fraudulent ballots being cast were simply untrue.

The NY Times story from NJ was about a bunch of absentee ballots being thrown out mostly because they weren't filled out properly. 3 were tossed because they either were suspected to have been cast for someone who was dead and one because the person tried to vote twice. From that Times story:

About 1,200 votes were disqualified because voters' signatures did not match those on file, according to the Passaic County Board of Elections.

In New Jersey, voters can designate someone to submit ballots on their behalf, but no one is allowed to drop off more than three during an election. As a result, an additional 1,000 votes were disqualified because a section on the ballot to list the name of the person sending them in had been left blank.

Only three ballots were thrown out because they had been cast in the names of people who were dead, and another was rejected because of suspicions that someone might have attempted to vote twice.


The Wisconsin story was noting how the Post Office was having trouble dealing with the number of mail-in ballots and the Republicans refusing to allow additional time to deal with the unprecedented circumstances regarding the pandemic.

What did you think these stories were proving, exactly?

This is also false. See this story from The Hill (via MSN)

From the article:

"The state now has a uniform process for verifying signatures instead of leaving it to the discretion of local officials. "

"As a result of this case, Pennsylvania voters can cast their vote without fear that their ballot could be rejected solely because an election official - who isn't trained in handwriting analysis - thinks their signatures don't match. Voting should not be a penmanship test," Mark Gaber, director of trial litigation at the CLC, said in a statement."

So, there is still a matching process, but there is a means for someone to challenge the ruling that the signatures don't match. Do you think someone committing fraud is going to go through that extra step? How does the signature check result in more voters than registered? As far as I know, they keep a record of who's voted by mail and in person and won't mail multiple ballots to the same person or to someone not registered, so I don't see how this could possibly lead to more voters than the number registered, either.

Care to explain how your scenario works? How does even your incorrect reading of the court judgement lead to more votes than registered voters?
