Trump is pushing back on vote-by-mail for the November election, saying that he believes it will lead to cheating.
But if absentee postal voting leads to fraud, then why has it been in practice since the Civil War? Because it does not lead to fraud. Trump knows he’s losing votes, so he wants to ensure Democrats lose their vote, too, by using unfounded claims that vote-by-mail will lead to “the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history.”
Here are five myths and lies about our vote-by-mail system debunked by Twitter—and the reasons why vote-by-mail is a safe and secure way to cast your ballot during the pandemic.
With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???
