Election notes:

Request absentee ballot

  • SSN, driver’s license #, age and signature (connected to DMV)
  • Eligibility based

Election laws exist, if fraud, often cannot vote again and prison time too

  • Signature matches
  • 1 time mailing to your house the ballot (address verified)
  • Barcodes included
  • Rhode Island and North Carolina require 2 signatures (witness)
  • Fraud is soooo small. One state said 0.0001%. 
    • Some fraud examples :
    • Mailman revenge
    • Republican candidate in NC (duplicates found)
    • 83 mailed by accident – computer glitch
    • 3rd party requesting – NY (too many requests)
    • Dead or in Jail – can’t vote, some pretended to be them (jail time for them)
    • Wrong forms used by 3rd party groups and caused duplicate voting also
  • Duplicate voting not allowed and must follow assigned voting list

Homeless count too, have other requirements too

Most require ballots returned by election dates to be counted – can by mail, in person, drop off in election boxes

5 states do their elections by mail and generally report less fraud than other states PLUS it seems to increase voting participation regardless of party affiliation

All States allow mail in ballots.  Most have Covid19 allowance in addition to the usual military, permanently disabled, essential worker (i.e. police, hospital), etc

Do note Federal and State have different election laws.  States often say disqualified from voting after leaving prison, this is not true for federal elections and have different rules.  Sure, simple to say, no to all when in reality election officers wrong.  You can call your election commissioner for more info.
