Turns out the ballots were mailed in the wrong envelopes (first class envelopes).
Election officials opened them thinking they were regular mail, obviously.
There goes Trump's conspiracy theory, making things up as usual.
Since when is the postal service allowed to open up 1st class mail? and how would they know that the 1st class mail contained ballots?

It wasn't the postal service that opened the envelopes, dolt.

So the ballots got throw out because they were in the wrong envelope - and for Trump?
Still doesn't explain why the ballots were thrown out? I would think they would be required to keep the ballots and the envelopes.

Of course, democrats have an excuse for each instance of their voter fraud.

The problem is, the system is not secure. Democrats concucted a system that is not secure because US elections mean nothing to them. They want to win, and win by fraud.

So the votes didn’t count!? Well than good reason to end mail in ballots
Maybe think of it this way: There are very strict rules about mail-in ballots BECAUSE they want to make sure nothing hinky goes on. Thousands of ballots are thrown out in states everywhere, everytime there is an election because voters are either not following the instructions (there are reasons for those rules) or they are trying to pull a fast one. They get weeded out.

It should reassure people mail-in votes are valid.

Not everyone can, and in some places where there is a lot of Germ floating around, it's risky. Mail-in voting is secure. I understand the concern about the system being overwhelmed by the inexperienced, but I think people need to judge their own personal situation and make that decision themselves.

Just a coincidence that they were all for Trump?


Well, good then. I'm glad that is clear. I can relax now. I was worried, for a moment. But that moment is past.


Because, I now realize it just LOOKED bad, but it was actually good.


Here, let's have cookies.

There’s germs at the grocery store there’s germs at the casino there’s germs at the restaurant.. people still go out in the CDC says you can vote in person. So to avoid a constitutional crisis stop being selfish and you Democrats should speak out against this atrocity

Fauci said it's fine. Are you denying science?

Besides, come November, the virus won't likely even be a big thing at that point.

No, a republican probably sent them out without a secrecy envelope. Call the SOS if you don't get a secrecy envelope and read the instructions.
