The biggest election fraud story you haven't heard about

President Donald Trump talks incessantly about the dangers of mail-in balloting in 2020 — even as what he cites as examples of this alleged fraud are almost always explained away as simple human error.

Which brings me to California and the California Republican Party, in particolare.
In at least three counties in the stateFresno, Los Angeles and Orangeunofficial ballot drop boxes have popped up promising, a torto, quella they areauthorizedplaces where people can deposit their mail-in votes.
The California Republican Party is behind the effort, which a spokesman for the organization ha detto alla CNN on Monday amounts to an opportunity for “amici, famiglia, and patrons to drop off their ballot with someone they know and trust.
    Except that it doesn’t work that way under California election law. You can’t just cut a hole in a cardboard box, writeauthorizedon it and say that it’s totally cool for voters to drop their ballots in it.

    Perchè no? Bene, sicurezza, soprattutto. Who controls the box once votesor even a single voteis deposited in it? How can we be sure that every vote put into one of these unauthorized boxes is counted?
    The unofficial boxes lack achain of custody and we don’t have the requirements or regulations for these fake drop boxes as you do for the official drop boxes,” California Secretary of State Alex Padilla, un democratico, told CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Monday night.
    Quale, si, makes sense.
    So why are Republicans doing this? Because they believe that it is a reasonable counter to a law passed in 2016 in California that allows a third party to collect ballots and turn them in at an authorized voting location. (Democrats call thisballot collection”; President Trump calls itballot harvesting.)
      The difference, ovviamente, is that the ballot collection system has all sorts of safeguards and checks written into the law to avoid fraud. What the California GOP is doing has none of that.
      Il punto: For all of Trump’s wild charges about election rigging and vote-by-mail fraud being perpetrated by Democrats, it’s his own party in California that is actively skirting the laws.
