(RightWing.org) – Mail-in voter fraud is a big concern before the 2020 election, especially considering the Democratic party wants to expand it. However, a new report from the Honest Elections Project says that fraud is only one of the many problems with people casting ballots by mail.
The report outlines a number of issues that would come with the vote-by-mail scheme.
"We need to ensure it is easy and safe to vote this November, but not at the expense of the credibility of our democracy." – HEP Executive Director @jasonwsnead

Here are some of the biggest issues that could arise according to the Honest Elections Project:
- Wasteful spending of taxpayer dollars
- Changing the rules of an election four months before it takes place could lead to chaos
- Ballots may be sent to ineligible voters
- Vote harvesting, when a voter fills the ballot out and gives it to someone who wants to help deliver it, could become prevalent. Those “helpers” could then throw the ballots away.
Expanding mail-in-voting is too risky. At a time like this, we need to do everything within our power to protect the sanctity of our elections.
