With bipartisan workers checking and rechecking and rechecking several times at the door, as they are processed, and during their recheck it would take 100% from both parties to pull something like this off. I guess the GOP workers approve of this. Watch some of the streamed Georgia count. There are so many safeguards by both sides that something like this can only really be a myth.
I thinkpotential fraud is ripe in same-day voting. Remember the 11 year old that changes votes using the 2016 machines in 10 minutes. Mail-in and the scrutiny they get and having a paper-trail seems far less susceptible.
Agreed, until that second paragraph.
Not sure why you would think same-day voting is susceptible to fraud. Maybe I'm wrong or naive, there is a paper-trail for all types of voting, whether mail, in-person early, or in-person day-of.
And I agree with your first paragraph. There are so many checks and balances in place for our election process that it would be nearly impossible to pull off widespread voter fraud like Trump is claiming. Election officials are not going to risk their jobs, careers, and reputations to do anything that even appears to be corrupt. And there are so many people working, it would be impossible to root out any potential whistle-blower if you tried to pull off widespread voter fraud. It would take a team of people conspiring together to pull it off and to cover it up from any scrutiny.
And voter fraud is a federal crime. And is prosecuted. And if you google, you can see how rare and small-scale it actually is. It's usually some idiot thinking he can submit a second ballot in someone else's name. Even if he got away with it, 1 vote is not going to change anything.
Regardless of who is the eventual victor, hopefully the gap in each state will be thousands of votes to minimize claims from the losing side.
