PAID BALLOT RETRIEVAL NEED
The KCGOP has an urgent need for PAID get-out-the-vote (GOTV) Canvassers through Election Day. Temporary workers will work in teams to assist voters to return their ballots in locations throughout King County.
Workday: 10am-8pm through Nov 6th
Contact: King County GOP 425-990-0404 or by email
Please forward this information along to interested Republicans.
Spot on. If a Republican tries to grab your ballot then beat the fucking shit out of them.
It is illegal to examine secret ballots so if it could be shown that somebody was collecting ballots and examining them to see what candidates were selected then that might be prosecutable.
This law might also be appropriate if the home (or wherever ballots are being collected) is considered a "polling place" due to our all mail-in election.
The problem is of course proving that they stole your ballot and that it was never delivered.
Destroying King County votes is statistically in their favor, but probably not considering they are probably calling their existing phone bank of supposed supporters.
How is the GOP effort any different? What am I not getting here?
They surely have every intention of delivering unaltered ballots, but can they help it if somebody breaks into the vehicle where the ballots are safely stored and steals all the envelopes with the names of registered Democrats?
Methinks me smells a rat here...
The Democrats doing this would also be questionable.
It doesn't bother me if the GOP just does "Hey, are you a Republican who hasn't mailed in your ballot? I will help you!" To me, that's just GOTV, just like driving people to the polling places used to be. But if the GOP is offering to collect EVERYONE'S ballots, it's not cool, because they have a vested interest in throwing away the ballots of people who disagree with them.
If there is no proper ID, then this is fishy.
My current script reads something like, Did you get your ballot, Do you plan to vote, do you know you can mail or take to a drop box (there is the location closest to them on my sheet, I optionally ask if they would share if they either Support the President or Other or Neither. Some decline, but most share.
I thank them, they often thank me..... My experience.
Please vote America!
The entire GOP has become a giant wackjob universe. Certainly don't let them handle anything you value, especially your vote.

Do NOT give your ballot to some stranger in a van!
