Vote-By-Mail: Most Voters Think It Will Cause More Cheating

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, last year’s election featured mail-in voting as a measure to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic, but now more states are making vote-by-mail permanent, and nearly two-thirds of voters believe the result will be more cheating in elections.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 65% of Likely U.S. Voters believe that wider use of mail-in voting will lead to more cheating in elections, including 51% who say it’s Very Likely. Twenty-eight percent (28%) don’t think more mail-in voting will mean more cheating, including 14% who say it is Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  1. Of course it will. Lots of dead people voted for Biden last November.

  2. Does anyone know when the concept of “early voting” came into being, and why? I’m my opinion, going to the polls on election day, after proper registration, doesn’t leave any room for shenanigans.

  3. Of course it’s the easiest way to cheat.
    Voting should be in person and supervised by a Democrat and Republican. That is the only way to restore integrity.
    Any other way should be unacceptable.

  4. Mail in voting absolutely affords the opportunity to cheat for those who are among the dishonest.

    For the fairest elections in which EVERYONE feels secure is to vote on Election Day in person and to pass a law that you must present photo ID with your signature and current address at the time you vote. This would pretty much eliminate “mulitple voting” from one person and also prevent someone voting for a deceased voter (county voting rolls must also be constantly updated to remove deceased voter names).

    Democrat politicians are claiming that photo ID is racist. I never heard of anything more ridiculous.

    A couple of years ago I submitted a request to my NJ State Senator asking that the NJ State legislature pass a law that requires photo ID to vote in NJ but I never received a reply.

  5. “Democrat politicians are claiming that photo ID is racist. ”

    Yes, it is!

    Except, of course, if the photo ID is for one of their favored dependency producing/enhancing programs.

    It even becomes a rite of passage as the issue of the current beneficiaries of these programs reach the age when they can get their own photo ID.

  6. Cheating (aka stealing elections); transforming America (aka Destroying America) IS the plan.

  7. I registered to vote. On Election Day for over 40 years, I voted. All governmental levels. Walked up to the poll worker, signed my name, verified my ID, cast my vote. Easy.
    In the 2020 primaries, I got my mail in ballot, signed it, cast my vote, and mailed it. Three weeks before due date. After hearing of ineligible ballots, I went online to verify it, said it wasn’t counted because it was 8 days late. I was pissed, but not totally shocked.
    From now on, I’ll vote at the polls on Election Day. Voting is important to me and it’s the only fair and legitimate way to do it.

  8. If asking for ID is racist then the next time I’m at a doctor’s office and they ask for ID, I’m calling Al Sharpton to stage a protest at the doctor’s office.
