California: Mail-In Ballots Rejected [Party Affiliations Not Reported]
7-13-20, AP & EpochTimes -- Thousands of mail-in ballots were rejected by California election officials during the March 2020 presidential primary, highlighting a glaring gap in the state’s effort to ensure every vote is counted. Pres Trump, National Republicans and Democrats have all argued over the safety and security of votes traveling through the U.S. Postal Service. [The data didn’t break down the uncounted ballots by party affiliation.]
The California election data showed 102,428 mail-in ballots were disqualified in 58 counties, about 1.5 percent of the nearly 7 million mail-in ballots disallowed. Percentage is the highest in a primary since 2014 and the overall number is the highest in a statewide election since 2010 [Obama was prez]. The problems were:
The tally of nullified votes can make a difference in a close contest. There are expected to be several tightly contested U.S. House races [Nancy Pelosi in SanFran] where a relatively few votes could tip the balance. California traditionally has offered mail-in voting only to those who request ballots by signed affidavits. Over time, the number has grown to represent more than half of all cast ballots. Researchers found that an average of nearly two of every 100 mail-in ballots were voided in California's elections between 2010 and 2018. In March 2020 the highest rejection rate in California was in Democrat Nancy Peolosi's district of San Francisco, where 9,407 ballots, or nearly 5 percent of the total were disallowed. By contrast, in rural Plumas County northeast of Sacramento, all of the 8,207 mail-in ballots received were accepted. More here
