Ever wonder what the actual difference between "absentee" voting and "mail-in voting" is? And does mail-in voting make voter fraud more likely?

It’s funny to point out that democrats have convinced each other to vote by mail, which is actually helping republicans since democrats are going to get their votes rejected, which is why many of them have begun to back-pedal to in person voting

My state has no-excuse absentee voting. You have to _request_ a ballot be mailed to you. *It's called Mail-In Voting.*

the 1200 cases of proved fraud reported by the heritage foundations aren’t all mail-in ballot cases. it includes impersonation fraud at the polls; false voter registrations; duplicate voting; fraudulent absentee ballots; vote buying; illegal assistance and intimidation of voters; ineligible voting, such as by aliens; altering of vote counts; and ballot petition fraud. also 2.7 million misplaced over the last four elections, that’s roughly 500,000 an election. compared to the millions that do vote and likely millions of ballots that do make it through. all in in all, i think anyone would still and should still consider in-person voting than mail. but absentee and mail are at risk if they go through the USPS which no one has helped fix. If you do a mail in, i recommend you drop it off at your local voting registrar, instead of actually sending it in the mail

And this is why the post office needs to have its funding increased for this election, and allow states to count mail-in ballots after November 3rd if they were mailed out before then.

I don't understand how people are supposedly suppressed. If they can't vote in person (by suppression or health reasons) then they could just use an absentee ballot? Why do we need vote by mail too? Very odd to add another method if voting less than a year before an election..

Those of you who have absentee ballots, must walk them into the election boards. Do not trust the post office, as tRump has a new friend there. Take the time to make sure that your vote counts.

If Prager expected anybody to take this video seriously, then why aren't there any sources mentioned in the video or linked in the description? Are these all just completely fabricated claims? Answer: These claims are all completely made up. The number about 1.3 million ballots rejected, for example, refers not to actual elections, it refers to internal party primaries and has absolutely nothing to do with federal elections themselves. Prager is at it again with their propaganda.
ScotGerCaJ Сарын өмнө
According to the United States Election Assistance Commission, 22,804,387 votes were cast by mail in 2016. How many instances of fraud were there? One. The idea that mail-in voting and absentee voting (the same thing, but called by different names in different states) leads to fraud is a myth and a lie.
adaonetube Сарын өмнө
Another creative attempt by the left to try and steal an election. IF they were really confident in Joe Biden and the polls then they would be supportive for in person voting. The same left that promotes people to go out and protest won't promote people to go out and vote.

Since the alternative to mail-in voting is voting on electronic voting machines, mail-in voting is much safer. In 2016 20% of voters voted on voting machines without a paper trail. Nobody knows if those votes were counted correctly. When PragerU claims that in person voting is safer, they're lying.

Absolutely. Now, all we have to do is find hundreds of thousands of grandparents that don't have access to their own mailbox. Next, we have to have their grandchildren take their ballots from them. Then we need to have each of those grandkids commit mail fraud and discard their ballots. Foolproof! It's too bad 200,000 of those potential home-bound grandparents without access to their mailboxes are now dead because of "the flu"

Weird how you conveniently forgot to include the count for instances of in person election fraud... that one number would be reallyyy useful before making a statement as strong as mail in ballots are more vulnerable than in person, I wonder why you could've possibly left that number out, and btw here's a link to Prager's source : www.heritage.org/voterfraud as it just so happens it lists 1,296 instances of voter fraud in the United States.. but it doesn't once mention absentee voting or mail in voting, so I would have to assume that it is accounting for ALL voter fraud rather than voting fraud via a specific method so Prager manipulated its numbers and misrepresented data, real surprising.. and for those of you thinking that they did not explicitly state that those heritage foundation numbers represented only mail in fraud, they implied it when they immediately stated that in person voting is less vulnerable, in which case how to do you draw that conclusion from that number if it represents all voter fraud? what if all voter fraud was to be committed in person and the number represents that? so Prager cannot accurately come to the conclusion they did with the numbers they cited.... its obvious they found facts around their initial claim that appear to support it instead of basing their claim on the facts..

I have been voting absentee ballots for twenty years. First, it was because I had a schedule that might take me out of town at the last minute. Then, it was just easier to do. However, to vote absentee I have to request that the ballot be sent to me. There are deadlines to meet and specific things that have to be done correctly to have the vote counted. No matter what, I always drop off my ballot at the Supervisor of Elections office. I do not mail it in because I do not have that much faith in the USPS. Democrats want to require vote by mail for everyone and to do so, they will mass mail ballots to any registered voter at the address listed. This is utter insanity and why they are creating so much noise about the USPS. They are liars and thieves.

The general election held in South Korea in April, 2020 is under great suspicion that the prevotes were massively manipulated by hacking in almost all the constituencies. There are 107 ongoing lawsuits to invalidate the results of the general election. Your votes are also not safe from C.C.P Plz be super alert about what's going on with your votes.

What if there was a way to bring back a true “representative” governing system? We have the current system in place, as it is now because when it was created, the fastest way to send a message from one place to another was on a horse or with a pigeon. Modern day tech has made that system obsolete and the wings & legs are thankful. Messages can be sent anywhere around the world with a simple push of the send button. Perhaps it is time to give everyone a “VOTER PHONE” that can only be used by the person that it was delivered to by using a thumb print or eye scan to activate & access the voting page required on any given voting day. The rest of the behind the curtain “tech stuff” could be worked out as far as where the “votes” are sent & encryption & ???? to keep it from being “hacked” to death. With the up coming “StarLink” system to provide internet access to the whole planet, I’m sure we can rule out a “no service” situation. No more voting machines, people, lines, traveling, time off work, piles of votes found later, thugs standing outside the polling station, ect. ect. & lots of MONEY SAVED. A bonus is that the system could be used all year in a fashion of everyone that wants to could “vote” for each & every thing that is happening “on the hill” & the representative would have to cast the “vote” of the people & not the way they might be swayed to vote from who donates to them. Again a lot of things to hammer out behind the scenes but this is just an overlay to what could be a better & cheaper way for the voice of the people to actually get to Washington D.C.. Bonus #2, everyone would have to register to obtain their voting device so that would clear up another lil problem that keeps getting worse and won’t go away. Bonus #3, lots of trees would be saved without all those #2 pencils being used……that’s a joke, son !!!

Mail-in ballots (as opposed to Absentee Ballots) is an attempt by the Dimocrats to obtain as MANY votes as possible. It doesn't matter at all to them that Many of these "ballots" will be sent by ineligible "voters", including Illegal Aliens, Felons, Deceased people, etc. Bcuz of the changing demographics in the USA, Dims want to speed up the process, and in the hopes that most Blacks and Hispanics vote Dimocrat (as they historically do) they're goal of achieving a One Party system - i.e. Socialism - will finally be realized.

Imagine being so pro-Trump that you pretend that absentee ballots are different from mail in voting and that the former's perfectly fine while the latter's the most unsafe form of voting (apparently even less safer than voting over the internet). If there was a time to prove that you don't have a Republican bias, it would be know. If you had the balls to admit that mail in voting is perfectly safe and that Trump's a hypocrite for wanting to stop it despite doing it himself, it would increase your credibility. Remember, mail in voting is just giving everyone an absentee ballot.

So, you are saying, absentee ballots are used by people who can't safely get to their local polling place (elderly and disabled were specifically mentioned). They submit those absentee ballots by mailing them in. In contrast, voting by mail is done by people who aren't going to the polls maybe because they can't safely get to their local polling place. They submit those mail in ballots by mailing them in. Now I see the difference! Wow, thank you PragerU for clearing up our confusion.

@Rioters Aren't Protesters "Malt liquor", eh? You aren't trying to single out a specific group, are you? But to your point, LOTS of people would not make that trip due to the pandemic. Most who get gas pay at the pump and don't have to worry about standing in a long crowded line like you do at the polls. With regard to groceries, that's why so many stores that never delivered before are now doing so now. We've made so many changes to try to make reduce risks during the pandemic. The main driver behind the opposition against expanding vote by mail is the common knowledge that higher voter turn-out usually favors the Democrats. And before you accuse me of favoring mail-in voting due to the pandemic, I've never voted Democrat; I've always voted Republican with the exception of 2016 when I left the presidential line of the ballot blank. Just because there are fools who take risks for beer insignificant items is no reason to insist that the non-fools of the population must take risks when there's a safer way to vote.about

The Democrat strategy for "winning" in November is a multi-step process. First they want to destroy the economy with massive over-reaction to the CCP virus. Second, they're fomenting crime and chaos in the streets by directing their terrorist goon squads to loot and riot, while at the same time releasing tens of thousands of criminals from prison. They're also working hard defund the police, with the aim of removing and neutralizing the only significant armed opposition to their power grab. Once that's accomplished they'll use the massive chaos they themselves created as justification for setting up new "public safety" squads, which of course will be staffed by heavily armed goons loyal only to them. And finally, they want to destroy the integrity of the election process with mass mail in ballots so they can try to steal the election through ballot harvesting and other shady tactics. And if they can't steal enough votes, they'll use their allies in mainstream media to throw doubt on the election results, which will be easy because the whole process will inevitably be a massive cluster f*ck. Of course, if the Democrats do manage to steal enough votes to win, then their corrupt allies in the press will obediently say mail in balloting worked great. Move on, nothing to see here citizen. The allied factions of radical leftists, deeply corrupt politicians, and globalist interests infecting the Democratic party have stepped way over the line, moving from traditional political "dirty tricks" into open sedition and rebellion, which makes them traitors. I do not say this lightly, because the implications are so serious it could actually mean the end of our country if they are not stopped. More than ever we need President Trump to be re-elected in 2020, and just as importantly, we need a Republican majority in the House and the Senate! Wake up people! The far left is not as disorganized as it appears. They have a long-term, multi-step plan and they are executing it. If we continue to let them get away with it, eventually they will be executing us.

I don't know why we can't just vote by internet. We can spend all day going over all the "bad things" about it, but honestly, I have beaten that debate to death.....there is absolutely no reason we couldn't create a system, under individual registration, to vote through a hashing algorithm, where no one else can see who you voted for but you can identify that your vote is being counted in the registry.....and through magic of mathematics with the algorithm, it will tell exactly how many each candidate got in votes. But then again, I think we need a different type of voting style altogether.....we need a vote of policy, not candidate. We need people to stop blindly voting a color just because of "feelings"...I am constantly hearing democrats saying they are voting democrat because they don't like Trump, yet when I ask them about certain topics, they are libertarians by policy, it's baffling people don't know who they are inside. So what should be done is each candidate has a list of policies that they want to tackle if they get office, the list of all policies are tabulated and given to all candidates to pick whether they agree or disagree.....next, the people vote, and the candidate that closely matches with the highest number of policy "yes" gets the seat. Here's the kicker, of all the policies they were running for, they can only actually attempt to complete the policies that received more than 70% votes. That's it, done deal.....and this should work for all "seats" of power. Any new dockets that come across the table are voted on as a "temporary measure" and can only last until the next election cycle, a candidate must put that policy on their raster if they want to have it become permanent (and they have to receive more than 70% voting for it to do it). Why? Because we already got the biggest laws in the books, like rape and murder....any other law that is made isn't important enough to require impatience. In fact, we have some laws that should just be abolished, like weed....c'mon already.

Funny how the "greatest democracy in the world" can't pull off mail-in voting. In other countries like Germany (28%) or Switzerland (80%) large parts of the people choose mail-in voting and it works fine. In Oregon it seems to be working fine for many years now. Why are so many people trying to undermine this essential part of a functioning democracy?

So being exposed or exposing others to deadly disease is not a valid reason for you Prager U? I am dissapointed. Also your main points of contention are 1) Unreliability of the Postal Service (not a problem of the voting itself, but infrastructure). 2) People's inability to fill out forms properly (an instructional problem, again not voting itself). Also 1200 cases of voter fraud within apopulation of over 300 million is not even a notable variance. By your own statements, absentee voting is just as fraudulent. That is a double standard. This video is the type of unfactual smear I expect from a DNC or Trump press release, not a PragerU video.

Colonrado has been doing mail-in voting since 2013, and to my knowledge there have been few problems; however, I don't have easy access to the Secretary of State's and County Clerks' data to know for certain. In our neighborhood, the postal service is hit and miss, which means we drop our ballots off at the Post Office or an official ballot drop-box as there is no way that we put sensitive documents of any kind in our mailbox for the carrier to pick up. Now what really concerns me is same day voter registration and ballot harvesting.

It’s bizarre how ill intentioned people always seek loopholes to exploit, shut shop guys, yes shut shop to these people , retaining only those with validity

Here's an idea: make voting booths essential for Election Day. If grocery stores, Walmart, and those other big places are essential, why can't voting places be?

"Why would anyone want to support a system a voting system that makes fair elections less likely?" How about because the potential for increased fraud is greatly outweighed by the benefits of encouraging those who normally don't bother voting to do so, because it allows a wider demographic and wider age range to more easily vote and might as a result actually result in a more accurate election.

There’s zero difference in the safety / security of the ballot whether voting absentee or by mail. It all gets delivered and counted the same.

But doesn’t several states already have mail in voting with low fraud?

Why is this made difficult? If you feel unsafe about voting in person, you should be able to request a ballot mailed to you. Otherwise, mask up and go vote. If you can shop and/or go to work, there's no excuse. Mailed ballots should only be by request, not sent to "everyone" registered to vote (lists that can include dead people and likely pets).

The biggest difference, that I don't hear mentioned, is that for all mail-in voting, ballots are sent to every voter listed in voter databases. The databases are rarely purged of dead and relocated voters, and Democrats have even blocked efforts to purge dead and invalid voters.

can you provide any evidence of this, or is this just a claim that you pulled out of your ass?

More people die in car accidents than bus accidents, so why would anyone support riding in a car? This is pure political propaganda riddled with half-truths. Shame on PragerU for this worthlessness that's void of any critical thought. The lesson from COVID is risk MITIGATION - not risk elimination. So, let’s apply the same grown-up logic to mail-in ballots. Bottom line: fill out your ballot correctly, mail it early, and go to your polling station if your ballot doesn’t arrive. Here is why this video is hot garbage and why everyone who gave it a thumbs-up isn't thinking critically. #1: absentee-ballot versus mail-in ballot: ok, so technically there’s a difference, but so what? They both get mailed in! And while the original intent was for people to vote absentee because they weren’t at home, NOW there are a lot of people who want to vote while sheltering at home. Duh. And does USPS know the difference between an absentee ballot envelop versus a “mail-in” ballot envelop? I don’t think so. #2: “mail-in ballots are the most vulnerable to being altered, stolen, or forged” -ok, it’s the most vulnerable, but what’s the chance my ballot is being altered, stolen or forged? Inform me so I can make a better decision. Wooden houses are the most vulnerable to fire - am I supposed to stop using wood? #3: “twice the rejection rate of votes cast in person.” Oh, so you DO have a rate - what is it? Why are they being rejected? Why aren’t you informing me? Is there a 75% chance my vote randomly won’t be counted? Or are votes being rejected because perhaps they’re, idk, fraudulent? Or maybe they're incorrectly filled-out because, uh, the sick and elderly are most likely to use mail-in ballots, so I'd expect them to make more mistakes because they're senile. And let’s be real: if you can’t fill-out a ballot correctly, then we don’t want you voting anyway. #4: “WI and MD are dumb and previously didn’t send out the ballots early enough.” First, most of us don’t live in WI or MD. Second, it’s August and the election is in November - there’s time to get ahead of this. Third, there was a guy who died while walking, so you shouldn’t walk either. Fourth, do we really want people from WI or MD voting in a federal election? #whocares #5: “USPS is also dumb and sometimes doesn’t postmark ballots that dumb voters don’t send until the last possible moment.” Self explanatory - and see the end of #3. #6: “in the last FOUR federal elections, an ESTIMATED 2.7 million mail-in ballots were MISDELIVERED and 1.3 million were REJECTED.” Wow. So much stupidity here. First, why are we counting the last FOUR elections? Was the 0.68 million average per national election not scary enough? Second, uh, "estimated?" Please elaborate. Third, Penn State says 138 million Americans voted in the 2016 presidential election, so if all 2.7 million “misdelivered” ballots happened in 2016, that’s 2% of total cast votes, but what’s the percentage of mailed-in ballots? Inform me! This can be relevant, but you need to do some research. Fourth, see #1 - no one cares about differentiating between absentee versus mail-in ballots. Fifth, please define “misdelivered” - do we mean late or went missing? Were they ever counted? I mean, how did they get to 2.7 million? Fifth, see #3 - stop with the good news, already, you're making me giddy! #7: “database of over 1,200 proven instances of voter fraud.” Are these individual ballots or does each one represent a campaign of voter fraud? How many years does this database cover? And ok, fraud is happening - you said that already - what’s the risk my vote won't be counted? And surely there are lessons-learned that local governments can implement to mitigate the risk of fraud - what are they? Overall, this statement lacks context and magnitude, so do some research and get back to us. Finally, that’s why we have the electoral college - it limits the impact of fraud. 4,000 banks are robbed annually, so should we stop using them? #8: “in-person voting is less vulnerable to fraud.” Face-to-face conversations are most effective, so let’s ban emails, texts, and phone calls - right? You still haven’t given me any substantial evidence to make an informed decision. #9: “why would anyone support a voting system that makes fair elections less likely?” See the first sentence.

NO ISSUE is more important than this. People can vote in-person once AND can also at the same time vote with mass-mailed out ballots too at least once or more. Ballot Harvesting of all them floating around, discarded, etc.

We have problems with mail-in voting? Well. Better give it up all together than solve them. That's the American spirit of democracy. That's not like we have a need for it to work anyway like a pandemic or something.
