Wisconsin’s Mail-In Voting Wasn’t Just Bad, It Was Disastrous

When it became apparent that the novel coronavirus was indeed a pandemic and quickly spreading throughout the whole of our country, we all knew it things would have to change. And since this is an election year, both for the office of president as well as many other titles, voting would be one of those necessary changes. However, if the state of Wisconsin is any indication of how those voting changes will go, I’d say we are in for very, and I mean very, bumpy road come November.

Wisconsin, like just about every other state in the US, held primary elections in the spring. But Wisconsin was the first to do so in person after the COVID-19 outbreak had hit. But because of the virus, the state offered that those who did not want to brave coming to polls in person could vote another way.

Enter mail-in voting.

Now, mail-in voting is not a new concept for pretty much any state. In fact, most offer some sort of absentee ballots to be sent out to requesting voters each year. However, it has never been done on such a large scale or in such a short amount of time before, which made the whole operation a complete and utter failure, if I do say so myself.

And to be honest, the mess of that particular election still hasn’t been completely sorted out, according to an investigation into the matter by the postal service’s Inspector General. Per the report, which was obtained by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal, the most damaging problems involved ballots not arriving in time to be counted, going to the wrong place, or not even reaching the voter at all.

“The U.S. Postal Service has identified hundreds of absentee ballots for the April election that never made it to voters or couldn’t be counted because of postmark problems, a new report says. The post offices’ internal watchdog chalked the problems up to receiving outgoing absentee ballots at the last moment from election officials, inconsistent postmarking of ballots and one mail carrier’s inattention to getting absentee ballots to voters in Fox Point.”

But upon a closer examination of the report, these were only the tip of the iceberg.

As mentioned above, in Fox Point, one mail carrier delivered hundreds of blank ballots not to the voters but the County Election Officer. The report notes that the address labels on the voter cards read, “Village of Fox Point,” with the name of the particular voter underneath. This, according to the report, confused the mail carrier. But by the time the mistake was found, it was too late to redirect them to their intended recipient.

In Fox Valley, not to be confused with Fox Point, the postal service was able to track three “mail tubs” filled with ballots that (estimated around 750), while reaching the voters, didn’t do so in time to matter. Because of the vast number of ballots and, therefore, increased workload for postal workers, a third-party vendor was used to transport some of the ballots. And these did not make it back to the local post offices for delivery until around 6 pm on the night before the election.

Only after a closer inspection, the 750 mistimed ballots turned into a number closer to 1,600.

Milwaukee had similar issues. The IG’s report noted that a “significant” number of ballots were not only not received by voters through the mail, but, in fact, were never even printed. Apparently, a “computer glitch” occurred at the Board of Elections, causing hundreds of voters to continue waiting for a ballot that never came.

And these weren’t the only problems. As the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal reported, “The 17-page report by the postal service’s inspector general accounts for some but not all of the problems that marred voting for the April election for state Supreme Court.” And they added, “Nearly 1 million people turned to mail-in voting because of the coronavirus pandemic.”

This is just one state and one primary. Can imagine what the results will be like when this is multiplied by 50, with some states dwarfing Wisconsin’s population? And don’t even get me started on the many possibilities of voter fraud.

Talk about chaos.

It has been our nation’s prayer that COVID-19 would soon pass, allowing our lives to continue as usual, including our process of voting. However, as more and more case numbers are confirmed nationwide, it is hard to imagine that happening before November, if ever, leaving us minimal options and, as I mentioned before, a very bumpy road.

  1. Mail-in ballets give the people who are unable to get to the voting stations, like people in wheel chairs and a lot of elderly. These statements are all Rep. They are reaching for straws because they know that they are losing very badly to the Dems. so they will lie about anything to stop the people WHO CANNOT MAKE IT to the polls. You’re just one of Trumps puppets. Everyday thousands of our people are dying because Trump’s dumb ass keeps making excuse after excuse about the virus. If you remember which I’m very sure that you do, when the pandemic first hit, Trump said it would just go away and did NOTHING about it but said it was a hoax. Now after 140,000 deaths he wants US to just deal with it. Hell if he would of did something in the beginning there would of been a lot less people dying. Now he wants to put OUR children at risk and send them beck to school when the virus is spiking all over out country. If you have ANY brains at all Trump is responsible for nearly all of these deaths. The most stupidest thing is that he said (if WE didn’t test so much we’d have less cases), how? They truth is if we didn’t test there would be thousands of more cases. He should be charged with 140,000 of Manslaughter. Open your eyes people, you still want a serial killer (the worse one ever) to keep running our country? Joe may not be the best, BUT at least he’s not a criminal. Wait until Trump’s taxes come out. He will most likely be charged as traitor and all kinds of illegal shit, including bribery to keep Stormy quiet. I really feel sorry for Melania, she is Beautiful, kind and smart, but the one thing she did wrong was to marry Trump. She doesn’t love him, you can tell that from all of her videos. She now finds out how stupid Donald is.

  2. Karen, Karen, Karen! We got this. Don’t ask for the manager!

  3. 2016 election tRump has help from Russia. He is hoping this election to get help from China. Relax my fellow snowflake….. we got this one in the BAG! 😘

  4. That is what my dad said about your mom.

  5. and they make good targets..

  6. Yes, and Venezuela requires ID to vote and you have to put your thumbprint on your ballot in the presence of voting officials. This is required in a 3rd world country, but it is too involved for our country according to the left!

  7. Based on the report above, the personnel in charge of addressing each envelope from a voters roll intentionally mislabeled the envelopes! The mail carrier delivers to each individual piece of mail. The carrier has no say, his/her job is to deliver the mail, wherever his route takes him/her. It was an inside mishandling job. I cannot believe that a mail carrier would intentionally take it upon himself/herself to make changes. That does not happen unless there is an outside intervention with a sizeable bribe, and normally it does not work. Yes, there is the case of mail carrier that committed the violation of changing the D or R on the returning ballots in another state; you can bet his job is gone. Obviously, he was approached and succumbed. I live in the state of Washington, we vote by mail for every election, county, state, and federal and I can honestly say -nary a problem!

  8. Use your mail-in ballot just like an in-person ballot. Complete it at home BUT hand deliver it to a ballot box at your local voting center! You CANNOT be sure that your ballot arrives safe and sound UNLESS you deliver it YOURSELF. You can walk right into a voting center with a completed ballot and put it right into a ballot box!

  9. I know, the msm is playing the fear card, and juicing the numbers, this is why they want mail in ballots in nov, we can’t let that happen, now are we going to stand and fight? or are we going to strap on a fresh tampon and watch cnn all day?

  10. You know, I hear Venezuela is nice this time of year.

  11. Forget about a pandemic. It is not as bad as they are trying to brainwash you into believing it is. Grab your bottle of hand sanitizer, your mask. your ID and go to the polls and vote and have confidence that your vote made it there and was counted.

  12. Forget mail in ballots. Put your mask on and go vote!

  13. I WORKED ON THE POLLS FOR ABOUT 7/8 YEARS…..AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH A DISASTER AS THIS MAIL IN VOTING????????? I KNOW HOW THE VOTES ARE COUNTED AND I ALSO KNOW HOW MANY ARE NOT COUNTED!!!!!! IF SOME DEEMS A BALLOT IS NOT RIGHT IT IS TOSSED…….I ALSO KNOW THAT THE NUMBERS HAVE TO MATCH EXACTLY AT THE TALLY OF EACH MACHINE AT THE TIME THAT THE VOTING STOPS!!!!!! IF IT DOES NOT MATCH AN OFFICIAL HAS TO BE CALLED (,ORE THAN ONE) AND THEY COME TO THE SITE WHERE THE MACHINES ARE TO INVESTIGATE???????? THE #’S!!!!!! WE USUALLY (DEPENDING WHAT TIME THE POLLS OPENED) GOT TO THE POLLING PLACE BY 5:30 AM….VOTING OPENED AT 6AM……..THIS WENT ON THROUGH THE DAY……THE PLOOS CLOSED AT 9PM….THEN YOU TAKE YOUR TALLY……(THIS ONE TIME) THE #’S DID NOT MATCH??????? WE WERE STILL AT THE POLLIN PLACE AT 1 AM IN THE MORNING………UNTIL MORE OFFICIALS CAME TO GET THE MACHINE AND HAVE IT CHECKED???????? IMAGINE IF THEY DID THIS TODAY?????? HOW LONG WOULD IT TAKE ??????????? BUT IT WAS DONE BY THE LAWS…… TODAY IT WILL NOT BE DONE BY THE LAWS UNLESS THEY MAKE THEM UP AS THEY GO ALONG???????????

  14. i agree to much fraud is going on

  15. CA has already verified double voting on April 7th, 2020, so let’s think about this, if you mail in a vote then go to the polls and vote and the person counting the votes does not bother to check if you voted already or just doesn’t care if your vote is for their party what would happen? This is a problem that has not been worked out because the ballots are not being requested but mailed out to everyone in the states that are allowing it. There are just too many ways this can be screwed up. Look at the bins of ballots the post office didn’t deliver to the people or to the polls.

  16. Mail in voting will be a disaster, it will be like watching a Russian election but it will be Americans voting.

  17. If their idea of mail in voting were really that important then they need to debate and vote on it in congress and senate just like every other bill. Then by 2024 they should have all of the kinks worked out. They just started doing it without consent or showing people how to do it. It’s a train wreck in the making. Don’t you expect your representatives to do it the proper way? Isn’t that what we expect when we pay them so much money?

  18. Amen, I have a lot of health issues so I considered absentee voting, but not an Election like this one. I will crawl if I have to. Our and our Grandchildrens future is at stake, our Great Country’s future.

  19. Only those who are physically disabled citizens should be allowed to have mail-in ballots.
    Photo ID’s should be required for all other voters.

  20. Mail in voteing is nothing but fraud the Democrats want to have so they can cheat all the way, they know they are crooked and will do any thing for themselves, they take the salaries but do not want to do what is right

  21. The only way they will ever get me to send in my ballot by mail is that my ballot will be insured with a return receipt request(green card) attached to it the day I get my green card back if at all I will call my elections board and verify that they received my my ballot and whether it had been tampered with I have tamper indicator seals for certain pieces( snail mail) mail! Plus my board will need to send me a copy of those I voted for receipt! I don’t trust the USPS because the UNION is DEMONRATICALLY CONTROLLED! ALONG WITH THE USPS BEING CONTROLLED BY DEMONRATS! Also the CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS FOR ME TO GO TO THE POLLING LOCATION IS INFRINGED UPON BY MAIL IN BALLOTS AND UNLESS THE DNC THAT IS PUSHING THIS ALONG WITH DEMONRATS THEMSELVES WOULD LIKE TO BE SUED FOR VIOLATING MY CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS THEY BETTER BACK THE HECK OFF THIS MAIL IN CRAP! I WILL SEE YOU AT THE POLLS! I DARE ANYONE TO TRY AND STOP ME FROM BEING AT THE POLLING PLACE OR FORCE ME TO WEAR A MASK IN THE PROCESS! AS FOR YOU FEARFUL SNOWFLAKES YOU CAN JUST STAY AT HOME! THE SCIENCE THAT EVERYONE HAS BEEN REFERRING TO HAS BEEN MANIPULATED TO FIT THE DEMONRATIC NARRATIVE! THE REAL TRUTH .02% CHANCE OF EVEN CATCHING THE VIRUS AND A 98.8% SURVIVAL RATE IF YOU DO! Dr. Fauci even admitted masks and distancing are just SYMBOLISM! To the DEMONRATIC PARTY ESAD!

  22. Where the hell is the comment I just wrote and tried to post? I want it back now ! So I can post it.

  23. I say ID voting in person you can go to super market baach anything but vote

  24. I have always voted by mail because I spend the winters in inMexico. In the November 2016 elections I sent it in from Mexico way ahead of time but it reached here the day after and couldn’t be counted. This year I will stay and go to the polls and vote in person!! This is crazy what is happening in my country. Do we want a known crooked senile man to run this country???

  25. I believe it depends what state you are living in as to the effectualness of the Voting by Mail ballot. If you live in a Leftist state, look for everything to go wrong because apparently leftists have ZERO MORALS and throwing away or conveniently misplacing Mailed In ballots is not unusual.
    A good suggestion would be permanently removing those individuals with zero morals and replacing them with someone more intelligent and respectful of our voting procedures. In other words, “FIRE THOSE LOSERS!”

  26. This mail-in-ballots-no ID-required scheme/scam has been orchestrated and promoted by the corrupt Democrat Socialist Party to ensure that voter fraud on a massive scale all across America will provide enough Election Day wins for their corrupt candidates to hold onto the House of Representatives and take back the White House and the Senate. The end justifies the means for Marxists. Will Republicans allow this to happen?

  27. Only going to do in-person voting. Will be asking the poll takers if they are checking Voter ID. If they say no, I will be bringing that to someone’s attention.

  28. Look, every election since the days of Tammany Hall in NYC, Dems have cheated in every election. The media tries to put a Pub up once in a while for ballot problems. But as a Party , the Dems cheat in every election as registrars are found out, ballots trashed, dumped et al. So , in Nov. , Mail in voting, more absentees when not allowed, voting prisoners, illegals, voting the dead and vote harvesting are all Dem tricks. The FEC will do nada . It will take GOP poll watchers and even fed police efforts to protect the ballot boxes as remember in Phila., 2016, Black Panthers scared voters. Dems will use any issue to keep GOP down tickets from winning and anything to defeat Trump. Every issue for the next 100 days has to do with defeating Trump: the MSM, DNC, et al +every Dem running now has bought into the Hate America pro socialist crowd. My suggestion is to vote in person if one can. GOP, Indies, even Libertarians have to stop voting 3rd party and vote GOP or the nation is going to become Veneszuela.

  29. And let’s not forget the mail carrier’s who dump ballots into dumpster’s so they won’t be counted. I live in Washington state and in the primary we had to sign the outside envelope and mark whether we were republican or democrat! Did I mention that Washington state is very liberal? So by requiring this the counter’s didn’t even have to open the envelope to see how you voted they could just pitch a republican vote in file thirteen to never be counted or a liberal mail carrier could make sure your ballot never reached it’s destination!

  30. I am really tired of all the conversation about “mail-in-voting” as if it was “absentee balloting”. There is a substantial difference here and it will make all the difference in even discussing it. Mail in will be sent to whoever receives it whether or not they requested it or even wanted it. The post office will be inundated with undeliverable ballots both to and from. I’m sure there will be cemetaries full of them and post office trucks too. How many will just be dumped in the trash?

    The folks who legitimately need or want an absentee ballot will be requesting it and will be anxious to vote when it is received. They will expect their ballot to count in the accurate way that they would be if voting in person.

    I’m just anxious to find someone who will explain this to the MSM and the poor voters who have no idea what will happen to their votes. Good luck. Yesterday I received my requested ballot for our election coming up, I will be voting and sealing the envelope as instructed and mailing it back as soon as possible. No problem, but I don’t want to be receiving or looking for a ballot that has no certainty that it will be counted. Wise up folks.

  31. Jezz gota love them commies.

  32. I have a friend who swears by the idea of mail-in ballots, regardless of how many glitches occur during an election. But, she also demands picture ID when persons show up at the polls, which of course, is not required to mail in a ballot, just the sure-handedness of the mail carrier, and we know how careful they can be, as if no one has ever gotten someone else’s mail. Personally I believe that mail-in balloting is fraught with fraud and it has been proven time after time; dead people voting, pets voting, minor children voting, in other words it is corrupted by individual carelessness or apathy.
