Democrats Put Provisions That Could Enable Widespread Voter Fraud Into Coronavirus Relief Bill
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has caused delays in passing the legislation designed to give Americans relief during the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.
She has inserted language into her version of legislation enabling public policy that the Democrats have supported for quite some time. Some of the language in her proposed bill would allow for early voting and same-day voter registration, opening the flood gates for electoral fraud.
Conservative Partnership Institute analyst Rachel Bovard exposed Pelosi’s shameful dealings that have harmed the most vulnerable during a time of unprecedented fear and panic.

Electoral watchdogs have sounded the alarm about the potential for fraud caused by same-day voter registration.
The Election Integrity Project California (EIPCa) exposed the possibilities for fraud with same-day registration when a similar measure was passed by the far-left state of California:
Allowing all polling places to hand out same-day voter registration could lead to mistakes being made by polling place volunteers, as well as potential voter fraud, the Election Integrity Project California (EIPCa) told The Epoch Times.
“This really allows for a great deal more fraudulent voting and a lot more error on the part of the election process that could terminate ineligible ballots that have been counted,” said Ruth Weiss, EIPCa’s director of legislative oversight.
“The reason is that poll workers are already extremely overworked and stressed. … Depending on the county, because training is not consistent throughout the state, they get very little training. In some counties, none of the people there had any training at all. In other counties, all of them are trained.”
“We saw a lot of poll workers accept registrations at the polls, even though it was not legal. We saw them not only accept the registration at the polls, but we saw them give non-provisional ballots to those same-day registrants,” said Weiss.
Concerns about potential voter fraud have been at the forefront of this law, in particular with EIPCa.
“A person can go in and register under a fraudulent name and Social Security number. The people at the polling places aren’t going to have the ability to check to see whether that’s correct or not,” Weiss said…
“In the last few election cycles, there have been so many changes in the election process, and a lot of them are hitting the voters by the broadside because when a law is passed, generally the people don’t know about the changes. There’s not a good process of letting people know what the new laws are. People are showing up at the polls and not having a clue as to what’s going on. What you have is a systematic effort to create chaos in our electoral process,” Weiss said.
Right now, Pelosi is blaming the Republicans for the stalling of the coronavirus relief legislation in Congress.
“The Senate Republicans’ bill, as presented, put corporations first, not workers and families. Today, House Democrats will unveil a bill that takes responsibility for the health, wages and well-being of America’s workers,” Pelosi said in a statement.
Pelosi is playing politics while millions of lives are in potential danger because of the coronavirus pandemic. Democrats will never let a crisis go to waste.
