Ignorant nonsense.Get it through your thick skull... IM NOT TALKING ABOUT ABSENTEE BALLOTS!!!!!NOT counting absentee ballots casts doubts on the election results.... counting them, does not....
Even if states allow a week or two, to count them....They should be counted, if they are ballots that have been post MARKED prior to the election.
I am talking about these ridiculous “I’m too fucking lazy to go to the polls” ballots. The ballots some States are saying they make count up to multiple digit days after the election ends. These ballots shouldn’t even exist. If they do exist they should be required to be in the hands of the Election officials a week early, so they can be counted immediately.
This has nothing to do with being ‘lazy.’
The right to vote is fundamental and paramount – it’s incumbent upon government to facilitate, safeguard, and encourage the exercising of that right; voting by mail is perfectly appropriate and warranted.
What’s ridiculous is the wrongheaded notion that voting in person is the only ‘legitimate’ way to exercise the right to vote.
This is about conservatives’ fear that when voter turnout is high, Republicans tend to lose, along with the right’s desire to suppress votes.
