Hans von Spakovsky joined The Tipping Point on One America News to discuss how postmarking issues could result in nearly 20,000 ballots in New York being tossed out. Von Spakovsky explains that this is one of many examples demonstrating the weaknesses of using a mail-in voting system.
Simply put, the absentee ballot system introduces huge blind spots in the chain of custody. It is in these blind spots where abuses often occur.
Moving to all-mail elections would be dangerous. Ironically, it would likely disenfranchise many voters—the opposite outcome of what proponents of such a change desire.
Hans von Spakovsky is an authority on a wide range of issues – including civil rights, civil justice, the First Amendment, immigration, the rule of law and government reform — as a senior legal fellow in The Heritage Foundation’s Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies. As manager of the think tank’s Election Law Reform Initiative, von Spakovsky also studies and writes about campaign finance restrictions, voter fraud and voter ID, enforcement of federal voting rights laws, administration of elections and voting equipment standards.
