California GOP installed unofficial ballot drop-off boxes. State officials

The President approves and wants to fight it in court.

Looks like the leftist really don’t want to make it easier for everyone to vote.
They just want to make it easier for leftist to vote and harder for conservatives.

The California law allows people to hand their ballots over to any designated person, who then delivers the ballot. Under that law, California Democrats have held “ballot parties” where attendees fill out their mail-in ballots and leave them with volunteers who return the ballots en masse. But Republicans in the state often decry ballot harvesting, and the California GOP sued Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) this year over the practice.

Now, the party is using the same law to justify the unofficial ballot boxes, arguing that its boxes are akin to volunteers who collect ballots from voters. “This procedure has been in place since 2016 — not sure why people are all of a sudden surprised,” the California GOP tweeted.

20133. Determination of Drop-off Locations and Number of Drop Boxes.

  1. Drop-off locations shall be determined by the county elections official. In determining locations, the elections official shall, at a minimum, consider concentrations of population, geographic areas, voter convenience, proximity to public transportation, community-based locations, security, and available funding.
  2. Staffed drop box locations may include, but are not limited to, city offices, public libraries, county offices, assisted living facilities, local businesses, and offices of community organizations.
  3. The number of drop-off locations and drop boxes shall be determined by the county elections official.

#1 Setting up your own personal drop box to collect ballots is not “designating person” as a drop box is not a person.

#2 The law also requires that drop boxes be designated by county election officials, placed in only approved locations, and be constructed to achieve certain security requirements.

Quoting the news article is great, but often you© need to look behind the curtain and actually look at the law.

Now I see some of the spin I expected. But please guys do go on how it’s always the Democrats who commit voter fraud.

It would appear there is some confusion then as democrats have been doing the same as the Republicans are now doing.

Really, could you link to an example of the DNC setting up fraudulent drop boxes in Orange County California and labeling them as “Official” without official designation by the country election officials?

Thank you in advance.

No, I can’t. Not from the article.

However, I can’t imagine ballot parties are meeting the requirements, either.

They were greeted by members of the Democratic Party of Orange County, who were hosting a “ballot party” focused on encouraging the workers to participate in the 2020 elections.

Organizers gave speeches, answered questions and handed out party recommendation pamphlets. Then workers were told that, if they wanted to, they could fill out their mail-in ballots and leave them in a sealed envelope that organizers would turn in on their behalf.

The law clearly states that a person has to be designated.

A mailbox is not a person.

If people were turning in ballots to them for the primary without proper designation, then the DNC violated the law. They should be prosecuted just like the GOP in California attempting voter fraud.

However they did NOT setup an unmanned Drop Box and label it “official” so fail on that part.

So they admit to election fraud in multiple elections? Just because you weren’t caught before doesn’t make it legal.

There could easily be a designated person for every drop off box who is responsible for “harvesting” and delivering the ballots. The GOP was taking advantage of the ballot harvesting law passed by Democrats.

If you are using the work “akin” to link what you are doing to a law, you are violating the law and are using weasel words to get yourself out of trouble.

No what the GOP did was illegal. Voter fraud runs rampant with the GOP

They try to win by voter suppression; if they can’t suppress the votes, they try to win by voter fraud; if they can’t win by voter fraud, they try to claim you won by voter fraud, and therefore they need to suppress the vote.

The California GOP breaks the law, Trump’s default position is don’t comply – go to court, and his MAGA supporters argue that mail boxes are people.

Hey, corporations might still be people but mailboxes never were.

Multiple occasions keep happening. It’s just a sad fact now.

I wonder if they repurposed all those mailboxes Postmaster DeJoy had hoovered up to prevent mail in ballots to be used for these drop boxes.

They’ll fraud you from the front and fraud you from the back.

Embarrassing to be a Republican these days.

Why do you think they’re doing it?

Only the California GOP would dig in to continue to commit voter fraud in a State they won’t win.

Seems like it would be more useful to commit voter fraud in a battle ground state.

#1 The unofficial drop boxes are illegal.

#2 To allow an individual (and a drop box is not an individual) to transfer a mail in ballot for someone else they person must be authorized and the ballot has to be signed.

So when these GOP ballot are delivered to election officials they will be rejected and the votes not counted. Now that is brilliant.
