A large number of fraudulent ballots dubious voter rolls must be sorted out before elections in 2022




A series of messy elections around the country could result from fraudulent mail-in ballots and dirty voter names, experts warn, warning that they should not be underestimated as threats to election integrity.


"Dirty voters rolls" are often the result of deceased voters or those who failed to notify their state about their address changes, since in essence, they remain eligible to vote until they are removed from the register by the state. In many states, mail-in voting is on the rise, which enables more fraudulent votes to be cast. All elections are allowed to be conducted by mail in California, Colorado, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Vermont, and Washington.


Several lawsuits relating to voter fraud and electoral abuse have been filed in the wake of the 2020 presidential election. According to former president Donald Trump and his supporters, the voting process was marred by numerous irregularities. These incidents of fraud were alleged to have contributed to the loss of Joe Biden's presidential bid.


Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at Washington-based think tank The Heritage Foundation and a former member of the Federal Election Commission, said that citizens will never know whether these claims are credible, since nearly all lawsuits have been dismissed by the courts due to procedural violations.


“We never got to the substantive stage of trial where witnesses could testify and courts could examine their stories, their claims, and determine their credibility,” Spakovsky told The Epoch Times.


During the 2020 election, Spakovsky points out that fraudulent absentee ballots became a significant concern, and they should be curbed in time for the midterm elections in 2022 and the next presidential election in 2024. According to the Heritage Foundation, there are two ways to misuse absentee ballots: requesting them and voting without the knowledge of the actual voter, or obtaining the absentee ballot from the voter, filling it in and forging their signatures, or telling the voter who to vote for illegally.
