    Is there any proof that the person that voted by mail using the Donald Trump name was in reality Donald Trump? How can anyone actually know?

    Apparently this President has no problem with it but only when it comes to him - he will be voting by mail in 2020 because he has shifted his registered residence to Florida!

    Other than innuendo, where is the documented proof the mail-in voting has contributed to voter fraud - to implement single voter fraud that could actually influence elections would require a massive conspiracy on such a scale that would be difficult to conceal!

    Given that the decision by the Wisconsin Supreme Court to disallow the rescheduling of the Primary has led to dozens of voters becoming infected with COVID-19, the 2020 Election could be held in the middle of a 2nd wave of the pandemic and result in the exposure of millions as an unnecessary penalty imposed for exercising their constitutional rights!

    Because he said he did and he was physically in D.C. and is a resident of FL.

    White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany claimed Wednesday that the reason President Donald Trump voted by mail in Florida’s presidential primary is that his job kept him away from his legal residence in Palm Beach County.

    “With regard to the president doing a mail-in vote, the president is after all the president, which means he is here in Washington. He’s unable to cast his vote down in Florida, his state of residence. So, for him that’s why he had to do a mail-in vote,” she said during a news conference.

    McEnany’s statement, which echoes what Trump himself said last month, isn’t accurate.

    Trump was in Palm Beach County, where he’s made his Mar-a-Lago Club his legal address for voting purposes, on March 7 and 8, the first weekend of early voting for the March 17 presidential primary. He didn’t leave until Monday morning March 9.

    So he even lied about this.

    Without photo ID, there is no guarantee that the person voting in person at a polling station is the same person as the one on the rolls - in the history of voting fraud in America, voter impersonation is a rare occurrence because, for practical purposes, it is far too cumbersome an approach when it comes to influencing the outcome of an election - gerrymandering is the method of choice!

    This President is so determined to impose his will on mail-in voting in states, that he is willing to threaten their Governors by withholding federal funds - while they find themselves financially strapped in the middle of a pandemic!

    Perhaps not. You have to request an absentee ballot in advance.

    He said he voted by mail, I'm sure as the President of the US he didn't have any problem getting a ballot, at least I would hope he wouldn't.
    He could have voted early when he was in FL. I can understand why he didn't though.
    That doesn't change the fact that he lied about why he voted by mail.

    Trump claims dishonest people vote by mail. He doesn't have any stats to back that up, but he knows of one case personally.

    When a every way to document something is denied to one, how can one document that something? If you can describe a way to uncover voter fraud without being allowed to verify an individual's identity I would be interested in seeing that.

    I notice that voter fraud is fairly easy to catch. Every time I've ever voted, I had to confirm who I was. Some kinds of ID are harder for people to get, and since the point of "voter ID" it to keep qualified voters from voting, the more difficult it is the more people interested in voter suppression like it.

    Indeed, in a column for right-wing clearinghouse WorldNetDaily, longtime conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly acknowledged as much with a defense of North Carolina’s new voting law, which has been criticized for its restrictions on access, among other things. Here’s Schlafly:

    “The reduction in the number of days allowed for early voting is particularly important because early voting plays a major role in Obama’s ground game. The Democrats carried most states that allow many days of early voting, and Obama’s national field director admitted, shortly before last year’s election, that ‘early voting is giving us a solid lead in the battleground states that will decide this election.’

    “The Obama technocrats have developed an efficient system of identifying prospective Obama voters and then nagging them (some might say harassing them) until they actually vote. It may take several days to accomplish this, so early voting is an essential component of the Democrats’ get-out-the-vote campaign.”
    ...
    Last spring, for example, Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Mike Turzai told a gathering of Republicans that their voter identification law would “allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania.” That summer, at an event hosted by the Heritage Foundation, former Wall Street Journal columnist John Fund conceded that Democrats had a point about the GOP’s focus on voter ID, as opposed to those measures—such as absentee balloting—that are vulnerable to tampering. “I think it is a fair argument of some liberals that there are some people who emphasize the voter ID part more than the absentee ballot part because supposedly Republicans like absentee ballots more and they don’t want to restrict that,” he said.
    ...
    After the election, former Florida GOP chairman Jim Greer told The Palm Beach Post that the explicit goal of the state’s voter-ID law was Democratic suppression. “The Republican Party, the strategists, the consultants, they firmly believe that early voting is bad for Republican Party candidates,” Greer told the Post. “It’s done for one reason and one reason only ... ‘We’ve got to cut down on early voting because early voting is not good for us,’” he said. Indeed, the Florida Republican Party imposed a host of policies, from longer ballots to fewer precincts in minority areas, meant to discourage voting.

    What about being asked to identify oneself is so difficult for Democrats and so easy for Independents and Republicans? Would not everyone be doing the exact same thing?
    Do you think Green is implying that regular voting Democrats are somehow lazier or less intelligent than Republicans or Independents? It would seem to me that he is either implying that or he is implying that party of the Democrats is more likely to cheat using early voting and therefore it is bad for his party. Which do you think is the correct answer? Is it that Green thinks regular Democrat voters are lazier or less intelligent than his own regular party voters or does he think that Democrat party officials are more dishonest than Republican party officials? If you can think of any other reason Green would believe that early voting would be bad for his party and not the Democratic Party , I am open to hearing it.

    Are you then saying that if a man is physically in D.C. , is a resident of FL and says he voted as Donald Trump then that is all that man needs to vote as Donald Trump?

    If say white voters and black voters had the same access and douments, yes. That's why the voter suppression laws are tailored to remove black and Hispanic voters by specifying documents they are unlikely to have, and ruling out documents they are likely to have.

    Does what you posted there mean that you think Green believes Democrart voters are lazier or less intelligent than other? Or does that mean you think Green believes that Democrat officials are more dishonest than others.

    BTW what documents are only accessible to white citizens ? Who enforces that inaccessibility and how do they get away with it ? It seems to me that doing such a thing would be illegal.

    It means that republicans (as many have publicly admitted) are trying to manipulate the rules to keep as many potential democrat voters from voting as possible.

    It doesn't mean republicans are lazy or stupid; it means they are corrupt. Some are probably stupid, but I think most aren't.

    If you open churches, but leave other places with similar density and other dangers closed, aren't you establishing religion?
