One out of every 12 ballots cast in a recent election in Alaska was rejected due to irregularities including postal service errors and voter identity inaccuracies.
The latest example of the shortcomings of the fraud-riddled voting method, mail-in ballots were used in the election due to fears of in-person voting prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The October election took place in Juneau and voters were deciding on a mayor, two Assembly members, three school board members, and an extension of a 3 percent sales tax.
“Very highly disappointing for both voters and for our office,” City Clerk Beth McEwen, who leads Juneau’s local elections, admitted.
A total of 700 ballots were rejected, roughly half of which were due to errors by the U.S. Postal Service.
“Some of those mailed ballots arrived too late, while others arrived late, but with no postal cancellation mark that would prove they were mailed on time,” notes a local paper.
Another 323 rejected ballots had issues related to either verifying a voter’s signature or identity through their date of birth, an Alaska driver’s license number, voter ID number, or partial Social Security number.
“A handful came from ineligible voters: they were registered to vote in another community, or they sent in more than one ballot, or they weren’t registered to vote in time. A few envelopes were returned without a ballot inside, and a few more ballots were returned without the official election envelope,” added a report.
The Juneau election follows Democrat’s massive campaign to universalize vote-by-mail elections in the U.S. at the federal level, as many believe the voting method was exploited by left-wing activists to ensure a victory for Joe Biden. While mainstream media outlets are quick to downplay claims of fraud against mail-in ballots following the 2020 elections, they previously had admitted the voting style has led to “high profile errors.”
