Could you imagine where we would be at this time if we didn't use the mail-in

ballot? We'd really be biting our nails to the quick...

We proved ourselves correct - more ballots are counted on our side if we do use paper. We answered our own questions about the process.

Just need to get all states on same page and we could do this every election, e.g., all states have the same mail-in ballot period; all states can start opening and scanning on first day of early voting; all states have the same end date help military votes be counted; ALL votes are counted. It would be an easy breezy Voting Rights Act.

1. Can you imagine if all of our mail-in ballots had ACTUALLY BEEN DELIVERED?

The numbers are too weird to think they all actually got there.
I'm sure a year from now there will be big revelations about how they were "lost".

2. I agree 100% Hestia,

I still say that's why Trump was so against mail in ballots, because that can't be programmed to flip votes. It's a lot harder to cheat with paper ballots.

The more states go to mail in ballots the more Democrats are going to win.

3. We would have been subject to far more manipulation.

As noted, there were problems with ballot delivery through the mail, thanks to DeJoy.

However, itís easy for bad actors to manipulate in-person voting. They can alter voter registrations, invalidating a voterís eligibility. We were hip to that one this time. They can remove voting machines from urban areas, which they did. They can run out of paper ballots. Machines can go down. On and on.

Despite the sabotage, I think mail in and early voting saved us.
