Anonymous Ballot

If these claims of 4 Chan figuring out ways to electronically cancel Washington and Oregon mail-in ballots, America may be farther down the path of decline than we thought.

The Gateway Pundit investigated and found that the methods making the rounds online cannot in fact be used to change someone else's registration in Washington and Oregon or vote in another's name. However, the claim that an already cast ballot can be cancelled via these means has yet to be debunked.

Oregon’s voting rules do require a valid state ID number or the last four digits of your social security number in order to return an absentee ballot.

However, people on social media who were digging into the alleged vulnerability also claimed that by starting the process of changing a person’s registration online in Washington, it cancels any ballot that the person has already cast.

We have not yet been able to confirm or debunk this claim.

Might 4Chan's claims be erroneous? Of course. Even if true, might the affected states fix the problem in time for the election? Possibly.

The question is, do you really want to take that risk?

If you're going to vote, vote in person. A serious polity should require all voting to take place in person after presenting a valid ID, anyway.


Good message!
