There are fewer than 35 days to go until the Presidential Election.
Time is running out and voters were in for a surprise.
And that’s because Vice President Mike Pence was just taken off the ballot for one mind-blowing reason.
Donald Trump’s warnings about the dangers of mail-in ballots proved prophetic when a chaotic situation emerged in the key swing state of Michigan.
Democrats are determined to win back Michigan as a centerpiece of their effort to deny President Trump a second term.
And with Michigan ballots being mailed out, there was already a catastrophe.
Ballots sent to voters overseas were mailed with Libertarian Party Vice President Jeremy Cohen in place of Mike Pence.
The Associated Press reported that “Local election clerks in Michigan downloading absentee ballots for residents overseas were given ballots that listed Trump’s Republican running mate as Jeremy Cohen, who is the Libertarian Party candidate for vice president, the Michigan secretary of state’s office said.”
Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s spokeswoman Tracy Wimmer claimed the mishap affected 400 ballots.
“Approximately 400 ballots were downloaded by clerks during this period; we don’t know how many were sent,” Wimmer stated.
Wimmer added that corrected ballots would be sent out to voters, but that anyone who returned one of the ballots with Cohen in place of Pence would still have their vote counted.
“If a voter does happen to return the incorrect ballot instead of the correct ballot, it will still count. The clerk will be instructed to duplicate a vote for Trump onto a ballot for Trump/Pence,” Wimmer continued.
Even if the correct ballots reach voters it will lead to confusion and chaos.
And that is Donald Trump’s main argument against mail-in voting.
In New York City, 100,000 incorrect ballots were mailed out in a widespread error that the city promised to correct by mailing out correct ballots.
In Virginia, over 1,000 voters received two ballots in the mail.
States can hold vote-by-mail elections free from chaos and fraud.
But like any other practice it takes time to work out the kinks.
The safest way to make sure every vote counts and is done so securely is to vote in person.
That is what President Trump advocated because it has led to free and fair elections since the nation’s founding.
Democrats’ push for risky mail-in voting schemes threatens the orderly conduct of elections that define the American political system.
But to Democrats, chaos is the entire point.
A confusing election where Democrats and Republicans are filing legal challenges to mail-in ballots in swing states across America is how the Democrats plan to overturn the results that may very well show Republicans winning on Election Night.
