The blue state of Massachusetts just rushed a new law into effect that literally forces election officials to count election ballots filed by dead people.
The new election law states that anyone who posted their ballot by mail before the November 3 Election Day deadline, but passed away after sending it in, will still be counted in the final vote tally, CBS Boston reported.
Democrats claimed this law was an “absolute must” because so many people are dying of COVID… except, they really aren’t.
By the state’s fake numbers, about 9,500 people have “died” from COVID-19. Granted, we already know these numbers are heavily over reported. But, let’s just use the state’s fake number. If 9,500 people have died (and let’s even say they are ALL voters — which they aren’t), and the Bay State has just over 4 and a half million registered voters, the voters “killed” by COVID makes up about .20 percent of the voters. That is hardly a number worth re-writing election laws for, is it?
The previous law maintained that if you died ten days or less prior to the counting of the votes on Election Day, your ballot could be invalidated because of your lack of using oxygen.
The announcement was made by leftist Mass. Secretary of State Bill Galvin.
“To be clear, these are people who are alive and competent when they voted, but they may have died unexpectedly after they voted,” Galvin said during a Monday press cnference. “In past times, if the local officials knew they were dead – had died – even though they had legally voted when they cast the ballot, they would have discarded the ballot, not counted it.”
He went on to give two “examples.”
“If somebody voted at 8 o’clock in the morning in person and then two hours later died, their ballot being in the box, it would have been counted. If somebody voted on an absentee ballot the day, or two days, before the election and died on Election Day and there’s no chance the material determined that they had died, they would always be counted. So that’s not new. What this did is (the legislation) took it out further. It’s not a significant number of ballots.”
First of all, it IS “new.” Secondly, if it is an insignificant number of ballots, why jump through all these hoops?
Now, Massachusetts joins Illinois by carefully counting the votes of dead Democrats.
