Re: Pros and Cons of Mail-in Voting4 weeks ago
When you file your taxes, there is a place on the tax return that asks 1) are you a Cdn citizen and 2) if yes, do you want to send your info to Elections Canada. Before a vote, everyone is sent a "registration card" and when you vote at your local voting station, you need to bring the card with you to show the people who cross your name off the registration list. Unless your cat or dog files a tax return, there is little chance of voter fraud. Also, when one passes away, you file a Tax Return for the deceased and you need a "clearance certificate" to be issued by Revenue Canada who, in turn, notifies Elections Canada that you're 6 feet under. Thus, voter fraud is more unlikely (not to say there isn't any at all).
What the Dems are promoting definitely does make fraud a bigger issue in the U.S. simply by mailing out millions of ballots without any sort of verification makes it a stupid policy, especially if one wants a fair vote. But apparently it's all about taking power - screw the citizens if there are "a few' ballots that shouldn't be counted, but WTH, lets count them anyway.
As for Saskatchewan, their mail-in is likely a lot safer than any in the U.S. as experience in New York & Wisconsin is any indication (oh and Colorado too apparently). Just sayin...
