The Herald recently reported that, “Thousands of ballots are arriving at elections offices with flaws that will result in some votes not being counted.” The flaw for many of these absentee ballots has to do with questionable signatures.
Somewhere, someone had made the decision the signatures were significantly different. However, many people who send in these ballots are aged or ill. Therefore, it is not unusual for signatures to change dramatically from one signing to another.
Some suggest this is another example of voter suppression and, without proof of voter fraud, it certainly appears that that’s exactly what this is.
