    Is there Republican abuse with election fraud? Sure, I'm certain it happens at times because I hear the prosecutions when it does. Is there Democrat abuse? ABSOFRAKKENLUTELY. Always is, and it's amazing how you never seem to want to cover it, WP! Way to leave out all the obvious for the willful morons who don't ask questions and believe whatever you say.

    If we had real media who investigated, they'd research these instances of voter fraud, negligence, harvesting that's been occurring throughout the country and media ignores. Do you know anything about the case in Texas where retired state police filed fraud charges because of stacks of ID's being used? What about the recent case of a republican in texas paying old people, gathering their ballots and talking them into voting differently? Saying she's gotten 7,000 ballots? What if 10 people do this in texas? That's 70,000. Why isn't media reporting on these? Because honestly, I've seen people win by 345 votes. Are you guys lazy? Lack curiosity? Or corrupt?

    They'll do ANYTHING to keep Trump from winning the election. I have no idea how anyone could cheat the votes in person, but could come up with atleast 10 ways to cheat mail in voting.

    There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud with (non-absentee) unsolicited mail-in ballots (that haven't been used "widespread" before now, oddly enough)….well, let's see if that claim continues to hold if this election goes for Trump. The Democrat plan was to vote early before Biden can blow it. If Trump wins, you can guarantee they will be singing a different tune afterwards.

    Trump campaign rallies are known to be super spreader events and Trump's lackadaisical approach to virus control has created a super spreader event right inside the White House infecting 34 White House staff members including Trump himself, his wife and youngest child. How much longer are we going to allow Trump to run his campaign of deceptions, blatant lies, and destructive policies that have divided and undermined everything America stands for?  Save our great nation and vote Trump out of office next month.

    1) How do you know that the person on the mail-in ballot is the person that cast the vote?
    2) How do you know that the person that shows up to vote in person didn't mail in a vote before/after they voted?
    3) What do you do if you discover that someone voted once via mail and once in person? Do you throw out BOTH votes since they tried to vote twice?
    4) What do you do if the person voted for "Candidate A" via mail and "Candidate B" in person? Do you count the first vote, the last vote, both, or neither?
    5) If it's discovered that a voter had multiple mail-in votes, how do you determine if that voter was attempting to cheat, or if someone else was stealing their identity in order to cast extra votes for a given candidate?

    There are a lot of ways that mail-in voting can be fraudulently manipulated. That is not to say that EVERYONE that utilizes mail-in voting will seek to defraud the system, but there are a lot of holes in the system that can be taken advantage of by those seeking to advance their cause.

    Typical BS Reporting from the post! There is much fraud going on but they use the famous vague wording of "There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud" There is fraud in every state BUT the term "widespread" is subjective so they can deny any claim as valid because they can claim they do not agree that it is widespread if reporters were actually real journalist they would be investigating the fraud that is being reported but they will never investigate because they know the fraud benefits the Democrats, the party the media protects. It is a scam!

    2:18. So only four states require people to send their own ballots?

    I received mail in ballots that belonged to previous owners. I returned to the sender's and told them these people don't live here.

    You guys should start working on videos for how TRUMP won in a landslide despite what your bias polling and overall echo chamber of information says. Funny how you guys think this is journalism. your a bunch of ideologically possessed activists with liberal arts degrees. I can only hope to bottle some of your tears in the weeks to come

    Did a dog get a ballot or not? You didn't answer. How about the drop box fires, the illegal ballot harvesting in Texas with Project Veritas. If you find some, how do you know its not worse than you think vs. better? Shouldn't we care more about the legitimacy of the ballot process vs. convenience? If you can go to Wal-Mart, you can go to vote. And what about the postal worker(s) arrested, the ballots found in ditches, etc. It may not be 10% illegal votes, but its not 0% either. How about a little balance.

    The Brennan Center’s seminal report on this issue, The Truth About Voter Fraud, found that most reported incidents of voter fraud are actually traceable to other sources, such as clerical errors or bad data matching practices. The report reviewed elections that had been meticulously studied for voter fraud, and found incident rates between 0.0003 percent and 0.0025 percent. Given this tiny incident rate for voter impersonation fraud, it is more likely, the report noted, that an American“will be struck by lightning than that he will impersonate another voter at the polls.”

    If you honestly think a trump hater won't destroy ballots your a moron. Half of this country hates our president. And some of those people will be handling mail on ballots. They've already found thousands of "misplaced" ballots, so it's funny to hear you say that Trump has no evidence to back his statements. Fake news, please tell the truth….

    I swear to God, this "news outlet" has become such a biased, pathetic joke.
    You just proved his point as to how complicate this BS is.
    So this isn't voter suppression, but asking someone to produce an ID is!?!?

    This report is BS! I’ve seen a ballot that was sent to a dog a few years ago. And somehow dead people continue to vote. There have already been ballots found in the trash this election season. And ballot harvesting is a lucrative business for some. And the mainstream media ignores it all because of their hatred for Our great President Trump. I have no problem with people voting by mail that are unable to vote in person. But every time a ballot changes hands there’s a possibility of corruption.
