Is Voter Fraud Real?
I recently came across a great 5-minute video produced by PragerU concerning three sources of fraud where they state, “What is the greatest threat to free and fair elections in America? Here’s a hint: it’s not Russia or any other foreign power. It’s not a person, either. It’s something much more subtle, and much more dangerous.” The interesting side note is that Nebraska has all three offenses.
The first up on the list is bloated voter rolls. The State of Nebraska going into the 2020 election had 10 counties with more registered voters than those who were eligible. The current Secretary of State ended up discovering this but quickly dismissed it as nonconsequential. Having voters still on the registration database leads to fraud. These extra names on the rolls that don’t exist are used by those who look to cheat by voting for them. The only way to discover if a name is used like this is to canvass select homes and find out.
The second is ballot harvesting, which is currently legal in Nebraska. Current Secretary of State Bob Evnen has campaign ads stating he is against it but did nothing to reduce it. In fact, in 2020, he petitioned the State Legislature to change election laws that saw many counties use only drop boxes and mail-in to get votes counted. Unmonitored drop boxes simply encourage ballot harvesting because they are not monitored, which is another Evnen decision!
The third easy way for voter fraud is allowing non-citizens to vote. In our state, no one at the polls asks if they are a citizen. No one checks to see if a mail-in ballot is being sent to a non-citizen. At the time of obtaining a driver's license, there is a simple yes/no question asking if they are a citizen. No one at the DMV checks to verify. Bob Evnen’s office has been asked to provide information on if non-citizens have voted and they simply cannot answer that question.
