Wait…. so he voted absentee last month…
and now he’s RE-voting?
Okaaaay….. he does live in Illinois.
Even so, it’s a comic strip.
For 11 or 12 years I was the California equivalent of an “Election Judge”.
I was what we call a “Precinct inspector”… in charge of a polling place with several “Clerks.”
It was a long, tiring, underpaid day… 6:30 am to about 10 pm….
actually, plus several hours on two other days, as well.
So I can tell you, Burl…
If you ask nicely, and we’re not running low, you can have 4 stickers, or 6…
no one has ever asked, but we give them to children who come in with their voting parents, so what the heck.
What you can’t do is re-vote.
People don’t understand that every ballot, voted on or unused, is checked, re-checked, and accounted for, by pad and serial number, which takes at least two hours after the polls close, even in my tiny precinct.
We count everything beforehand as well…. and we don’t throw away any stubs, so the county officials can do it again.
Our sign in sheets are cross referenced by address and lists of absentee voters… if you got a ballot in the mail you can’t vote at the polls, except on a provisional ballot that’s checked against mailed ones for duplication.
Unsigned absentee ballots… which we now call Vote-by-Mail cos you don’t need an excuse… and ones where the signatures don’t match the one on file, are also rejected… it’s like visiting your safe deposit box.
So stop with the stories of dead and duplicate voters…. it’s just political hype and nonsense.
Yes, in some states they have found dead people and criminals on the VOTER LISTS.
But their BALLOTS, presumably voted by imposters, are caught…. they don’t make it through to be counted.
That’s why they know the attempted fraud occurred…. because it was thwarted.
