All Polls Are Wrong in Friends and Foes A blog by william.scherk in General Posted August 16 31 minutes ago, william.scherk said: One reason you might want to make note of this forecast today ... it will come in handy as a locus of scorn and schadenfreude if election results don't bear much relation to their model. Thanks to our northern province, Canadia. MIke Myers. I am a bit leery about the idea of mail in voting, though some voters have opted for that method over the years, as with the elderly. Of course there are always absentee ballots among the military and their families. When I vote I must show my ID, even though the polling staff may know me by sight. What if election day comes and goes but Americans are are still waiting for the absentee ballots to come in and be counted? That is not good. And there is a greater chance of fraud. After taking precautions a grocery store can have people come in and shop so why not the same for on-site voting? I hereby vote for on-site voting with the usual allowance for absentee ballots. Oh, and no “Instacart” voting, but could curb side ballot pickup and voting be legit? Hmmm? You can see the license tags. We could use drive in theater or sports pavilion parking lots. Peter From The Heritage Foundation. Types of Voter Fraud. IMPERSONATION FRAUD AT THE POLLS: Voting in the name of other legitimate voters and voters who have died, moved away, or lost their right to vote because they are felons, but remain registered. FALSE REGISTRATIONS: Voting under fraudulent voter registrations that either use a phony name and a real or fake address or claim residence in a particular jurisdiction where the registered voter does not actually live and is not entitled to vote. DUPLICATE VOTING: Registering in multiple locations and voting in the same election in more than one jurisdiction or state. FRAUDULENT USE OF ABSENTEE BALLOTS: Requesting absentee ballots and voting without the knowledge of the actual voter; or obtaining the absentee ballot from a voter and either filling it in directly and forging the voter’s signature or illegally telling the voter who to vote for. BUYING VOTES: Paying voters to cast either an in-person or absentee ballot for a particular candidate. ILLEGAL “ASSISTANCE” AT THE POLLS: Forcing or intimidating voters—particularly the elderly, disabled, illiterate, and those for whom English is a second language—to vote for particular candidates while supposedly providing them with “assistance.” INELIGIBLE VOTING: Illegal registration and voting by individuals who are not U.S. citizens, are convicted felons, or are otherwise not eligible to vote. ALTERING THE VOTE COUNT: Changing the actual vote count either in a precinct or at the central location where votes are counted. BALLOT PETITION FRAUD: Forging the signatures of registered voters on the ballot petitions that must be filed with election officials in some states for a candidate or issue to be listed on the official ballot.
