There have been many questions raised and allegations of voter fraud concerning mail-in ballots during the recent US Federal election. The Epoch Times recently reported on potential problems with thousands of mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania. These are all allegations at this point, but particularly note the report stated that 23,000 ballots arrived before their sent date.
The Epoch Times explains:
More than 20,000 absentee ballots in Pennsylvania have impossible return dates and another more than 80,000 have return dates that raise questions, according to a researcher’s analysis of the state’s voter database.
Over 51,000 ballots were marked as returned just a day after they were sent out—an extraordinary speed, given U.S. Postal Service (USPS) delivery times, while nearly 35,000 were returned on the same day they were mailed out. Another more than 23,000 have a return date earlier than the sent date. More than 9,000 have no sent date.
Meanwhile, the Western Journal reports that Allegheny County has decided to count nearly 2,500 mail-in ballots that did not have a date on the outside as required by state law:
One Pennsylvania county has decided that regardless of what election law says, it will count a host of mail-in ballots.
The Allegheny County Board of Elections on Tuesday voted to count 2,349 ballots that had been set aside because the voter did not put a date on the outer envelope, according to TribLive.
The ballots arrived on or before Election Day.
Then there was this story about mail-in voting from The Blaze:
The bizarre case of the Erie, Pennsylvania, U.S. Postal Service whistleblower who claims that he overheard his supervisors discussing backdating the postmarks on absentee ballots took another twist Tuesday when Democrats on the House Oversight Committee claimed that the whistleblower recanted, only to have the whistleblower release a video denying that he recanted.
The whistleblower, who has been identified as Richard Hopkins, claimed in an affidavit that he overheard his supervisor telling another postal employee that he had backdated a group of mail-in ballots that were collected on Nov. 4 to make it appear that they had in fact been mailed on Nov. 3. Under a ruling from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, ballots that were mailed by Nov. 3 will still be counted (pending a legal challenge to this ruling) even if they were received after Election Day.
