Oregon has all mail voting. The leftists in Washington are driving to make this state just like Oregon.
“It’s so convenient.” They say. “It increases turnout.” They crow.
But what they don’t ever want to discuss is that it has to go through the void that is the United States Postal Service.
Just six days before the Election, KING 5 News discovered absentee ballots being left unsecured in a University Place post office.
In fact, the postal service admits the ballots were put in a position where they could be compromised and they blame it on a bad decision.
Jackie Giles was stunned when she walked through the doors at her post office to drop off her absentee ballot.
“It was clear that they were sitting right out in the open there,” she said.
She was greeted with signs directing people to drop off their ballots in an unsecured cart set off to one side of the main counter. She was so concerned, she took pictures of the ballots sitting out in the open.
“In Washington State the last gubernatorial election was decided by 133 votes, so some missing ballots could really make a difference,” she said.
You ballot is just another piece of mail to the USPS.
There is no way I will ever vote by mail. The parking sucks and it is an area that I don’t really feel comfortable in, but if Pierce County ever goes to Mail Only I will drive my ballot to the County Auditor’s office and put it into the ballot machine myself.
