While Democrats are essentially bending over backward in an effort to convince the voting public that mass mail-in voting across the country is the safe and right thing to do while the country deals with a global pandemic, there are more issues popping up with the idea on what seems like a daily basis.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the latest example of why mass mail-in voting has the potential to turn into a series of unfortunate events, in who knows how many precincts around the country, happened this week in Los Angeles — one of America’s largest cities.
As it was reported, a staggering 2,100 mail-in ballots were sent out to voters as expected, but there was just one teensy-weensy problem: There was no option to vote for the president of the United States.
Keep in mind, this is a state that is all but forcing its residents to vote via mail-in ballots, blaming the Coronavirus pandemic for making in-person voting too dangerous for the masses. While most conservatives don’t agree with that approach, we can at least agree that if you’re going to take that route, the process must be absolutely flawless.
So, yeah, the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s office isn’t off to a great start.
Their explanation? Oh, no big deal! The office said that the mail-in ballots were “faulty ballots.” So, what does one do with a “faulty ballot?” County Clerk’s office spokesperson Michael Sanchez instructed voters to “discard” them.
The County Clerk’s office also made sure to issue an apology over the ordeal, making sure to point out the “small number” of voters in the county that the glaring mistake affected.
“While this has impacted a very small number of Los Angeles County voters … we nevertheless apologize to those affected by the mistake,” the office said in a statement.
I’m willing to bet that there are plenty of people in that group of 2,100 voters who will probably not even notice — or care — and fill out the ballot as normal and send it in. Then what? Will the “faulty ballot” be caught and discarded” Will the person who received the “faulty ballot” be given a chance to fill out a proper ballot and have their vote count at the polls?
Look, don’t expect to see this story get too much coverage — if any at all — in the liberal mainstream media. If it does, it’ll be written off as a one-off event and undoubtedly depicted as no big deal.
But in one of the most influential and probably tightest upcoming elections in American history, if states or counties insist on pushing the mail-in ballot method on its residents, they’d better get it 100 percent right the first time around. We’re less than 30 days from the election — there is absolutely no room for errors.
