    that the envelope has a D for Democrat and an R for Republican in the Code on the envelope. If so that's ripe for fraud. Like that military base..."Oops, we "lost" 9 ballots and they all just happened to be for Trump".

    Have no idea but have no intention of handing my filled out ballot to anyone and especially have it handle by election officials. I vote IN PERSON. We are already seeing problems with mail in voting.

    There should ZERO way to ID a ballot as D or R from the outside.

    Your name is associated with that ballot as it is handed to a government official.....and they then control your ballot.............................no way.

    There is no such "code" on my ballot envelope. Furthermore, you link says nothing about envelopes being marked with a :D: or an "R", but it DOES say improperly discarded ballots (9) were detected. So it seems the system is working properly.

    Soooooo does each person get two envelopes?
    If you want your vote counted why not stuff your R vote in a D envelope?

    Yeee gods but Trump supports must think that he will only get about a dozen votes if they are panicking over 9 (or was it seven?) votes

    Not True. There is no "D" or "R" on the outside of the envelope. Is there an "I" for independent? A "G" for Green Party? What happens if a Dem votes for
    a Republican candidate? Does it magically turn the "D" to an "R"?

    we have received a handful of ballot requests letters and one even said ballot enclosed - many are confused and that is the goal of the right it seems

    Only because someone noticed them and two could be associated back to the voter. How many were successfully thrown away so they would not he counted?

    maybe we need to hire the banks to make voting atm's, we get a vote card, we drive through and vote, just like taking a withdrawal from the bank

    we have an online account, so we can see what our vote was and that it was counted

    Sounds fake. How would that even work? Would it just be based on registration? It sure as hell can't be based on how you actually voted unless you put the letter on there yourself.

    Mail in voting is a recipe for disaster.

    But the USA is too ass-backwards to streamline and secure the voting process.

    Well, we (wife and I) have received 4 ballots in the mail, if we were good vote frauders, we would fill all 4 out and still vote at the polls for Biden.

    So what are the odds all 9 were for Trump, given we hear how most military will vote Biden?

    The whole thing about the letters is fake news. You were just asking a question. I'm saying that the story you heard that lead you to ask the question was fake news.

    That would actually make you pretty crappy "vote frauders." Only one vote would actually count for each of you and you'd basically be putting a flashing sign in your yard sayin "I'm a felon, please arrest me."

    Your link stated primary ballots are so marked, you read that far into it? Right?
    So no the "whole thing" is not.
