President Trump continues to rail against voting by mail but the NM GOP is putting a selective spin on the bashing to justify its own mailer to Bernalillo County voters that includes an absentee ballot application. The party quotes Trump as saying on July 30 that “I will be an absentee voter. We have a lot of absentee voters. It works. So we are in favor of absentee.”…
President Trump continues to draw false distinctions between mail-in and absentee ballots, claiming the former are rife with voter fraud while the latter — which he has used as president — require a voter to go through “a very strict process. The equivalent of going to a voting machine, or maybe even sometimes better.” Voting experts told us the verification process is the same for absentee and mail-in ballots, and many states consider them to be the same thing.
Conservatives are stuck with this self-image of being the only true hard-working Americans – therefore the only folks who deserve to vote. So, making it easier only applies to their votes.
