The 2020 elections across the nation were marred with reports of fraud, especially surrounding the huge increase in mail-in ballots. Due to alleged COVID-19 concerns, states allowed them, superseding laws passed by state legislatures.
In plain language, state legislatures took time to pass election laws trying to prevent election fraud from taking place, BUT, leftists were able to find judges who allowed the temporary COVID emergency powers to override the state laws which ushered in universal mail-in ballots.
As a result, on election night and the days following Joe Biden who lost the election day voting counts ended up winning all the swing states in the end because of the massive advantage he experienced in the mail-in ballots which went for Democrats, well above the election day voting percentages.
Dinesh D’Souza released a documentary showing the massive amount of ballot harvesting and ballot stuffing that took place, especially in the swing states.
The same liberals are once again trying to demand the use of mail-in ballots, using COVID, but this time the courts are saying not so fast.
A judge in New York ruled that the continued use of COVID as the excuse for using absentee ballots in elections is not constitutional.
The New York Post reported on this ruling out of the state:
Allowing New Yorkers to vote by mail due to fear of COVID-19 is unconstitutional, a state judge said Friday in a ruling that Republican and Conservative Party leaders hailed as a victory for fair elections.
The 28-page ruling by Saratoga County Supreme Court Justice Dianne Freestone ordered local boards of election to stop counting the absentee ballots they’ve already received.
FOX News reported yesterday on this development in New York state:
A judge in New York ruled that voting by mail over fears of the coronavirus is unconstitutional.
The Democrat-controlled legislature “appears poised to continue the expanded absentee voting provisions of New York State Election Law … in an Orwellian perpetual state of health emergency and cloaked in the veneer of ‘voter enfranchisement,’” Saratoga County Supreme Court Justice Dianne Freestone, a Republican, wrote in her ruling Friday.
The 28-page ruling ordered local election boards to stop counting absentee ballots they’ve already received and to “preserve” them until after Election Day on Nov. 8 or after the resolution of a lawsuit filed by Republicans in the state. The ruling does not invalidate ballots that have already been mailed.In 2020, delays, litigation and mistakes by election boards that faced a flood of absentee ballots led to long waits for election results. The Democratic-controlled legislature eventually passed a law allowing for early counting of absentee voting.
