As California switched to all-mail voting, 10 million ballots went missing. This trend cannot continue into future elections.

From The Federalist. The 2022 midterms were the first major elections to occur in California after the Golden State approved all-mail voting in September 2021. Under the new system, all registered voters in the state are automatically mailed a ballot for each election cycle (Californians can still opt to vote in person if they wish). But during California’s first foray into mass mail-in balloting for the 2022 midterms, 226,250 mail ballots were rejected and more than 10 million remain unaccounted for, according to a new report by the Public Interest Legal Foundation.

Get involved in state level prayer with IFA.


Per the report, the most common reason for rejection of mail ballots in the 2022 cycle was late arrival (48 percent of rejects). Under California law, mail ballots must be postmarked no later than Election Day and arrive at the tabulation center within seven days. For the state’s 2022 general elections, more than 57,000 ballots arrived after Nov. 15 (the seven-day mark). Largely as a result of the switch to mail-in balloting, more than 57,000 Californians were disenfranchised. Such voter disenfranchisement is sure to continue as long as the state keeps its vote-by-mail system. …

Another concerning figure coming from California’s midterm election cycle is that 10 million ballots still remain unaccounted for, after processing all polling place votes and rejected ballots. …

Unaccounted mail-in ballots are a serious liability for states with all-mail voting. … While there is no way of knowing whether these missing mail-in ballots were used fraudulently, they still pose a risk to election integrity. …

Just to be very brief here. In 2019, when Nancy Pelosi was looking and determining the Nation’s budget. She mentioned that we need more money for election software to bring about a more streamline approach to out elections as needed in each state. I was immediately suspicious. I knew something was up with our elections.
