RALEIGH – The examples of less-than-encouraging mishaps involving absentee and mail-in ballots are piling up, adding evidence to the now taboo claim that mail-in voting is prone to fraud and mistakes. Well, it’s only taboo because President Donald Trump has pointed it out, and those that suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome have been sent into a fever.
And the mistakes go beyond mere absentee balloting.
In fact, Trump was calling out mayhem in the Great Swing State of North Carolina Tuesday night on Twitter — back to his normal self and on his way to beating the coronavirus.
11,00 North Carolina residents get incorrect voter registration forms. 2000 LA County Voters received “faulty” Ballots, with NO WAY TO VOTE FOR PRESIDENT. Many others throughout USA. Here we go. This will be the most corrupt Election in American History!Notice: The WPP_Query class has been deprecated since 5.0.0.

How many anecdotal stories have you heard of voters receiving absentee ballots even though they never request one? Heck, there is even a Democrat running for office in North Carolina that seems to have voted twice in 2008 — in two different states — but swearing up and down she only voted once, and some years not at all (even though votes were cast somehow).
It is going to be a long three weeks until election day, and possibly an even longer three weeks AFTER election day. Buckle up.
