The Election Integrity Crisis
“You have these leftists urging people to vote by mail, knowing that their votes are going to be lost. I think that’s awful,” Fitton stated in last week’s Weekly Update.
Addressing voters across the country, Fitton dedicated part of last week’s Weekly Update to the risks of mail-in-voting. With millions of Americans gearing up to cast their votes by mail this year, Fitton warned voters that “potentially millions of ballots could be thrown out on election day.” As Fitton explains, an estimated 550,000 ballots were thrown out in this year’s primary elections alone, over 200,000 more than those thrown out in the 2016 general election. “Imagine a similar number of ballots in November.”
Fitton also encouraged viewers to challenge state rulings which “undermine the security of our elections,” such as the weakening of voter-ID requirements, or in in the case of Pennsylvania “a state supreme court ruling that changed the ballot deadline from election day to 3 days after election day.” As Fitton explained, the ruling requires with no verification of the ballot mail-in-date by post-mark, meaning “there’s really no way to effectively challenge those ballots.”
“We’re facing a big crisis, on election integrity we [Judicial Watch] have been basically alone,” Fitton stated. Fighting to scrub an estimated 2.5 million extra names from voter rolls across the country, and push states to strengthen voter-ID requirements, Judicial Watch is leading the way to stop the Left from “eliminating voter ID… and swamping the mail with ballots from lists they know are dirty.”
Furthermore, “I’m concerned about violence on election day,” Fitton explains. “ANTIFA and the violent left, even the New York Times talk about violence, damage and revolution if President Trump is seen as having won.” As it stands, uncertainty will breed chaos this November, in Fitton’s words. The Transition Integrity Project’s wargaming appears to have led Democrats to suggest the Joint Chiefs of Staff “need to forcibly remove the president if there’s an election dispute.” Zuckerberg, the founder and owner of Facebook seems to have suggested that “it’s perfectly reasonable if we don’t know who won for week and weeks.”
As Fitton rebuts, “it isn’t reasonable. They’re sending ballots to people who aren’t there. They don’t have security measures in place to make sure that those who vote are eligible to vote.”
“I want a system in place that’s fair and I want there to be reasonable checks to make sure that voter fraud is not countenanced or encouraged,” Fitton concluded.
If you too want a more secure election, where nobody’s vote is lost, support Judicial Watch today. As your watchdog in Washington, DC we will never stop doing the “heavy lifting” to ensure clean, secure elections.
