California’s Disastrous Universal Mail-in Election Lost 10 Million Ballots in 2022


California’s Emergency has the results! The COVID excuse is to abandon most in-person voting and move to universal mail-in votes. Gov. Gavin Newsom tried to help Democrats, but it was disastrous if election integrity is important.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), which analyzed the results of California’s 2022 general and primary elections, found that California lost ten million of its ballots. This situation is worse. More details will follow. Let’s take a moment to consider the 10,000,000 ballots that were lost.

Gavin Newsom’s universal mail-in voting system was designed to benefit incumbents and Democrats. However, I will repeat that I lost more votes than the population of all 50 American states. I did include Michigan, even though it only has 10,135,438 inhabitants — basically a rounding error. If you find it insulting to refer to 135,438 residents as a rounding error then congratulations! You are beginning to understand the gravity of losing a number almost equal to one of the most important states in the union.

I believe that this is a feature and not a problem in this rigged system.

In fact, Newsom made the Democrat-endorsed universal mail-in system permanent when he signed into Law AB 37 in 2021. He signed AB 37 in 2021 without realizing the effect, other than to benefit Democrats and vote cheats. The first major test was the November 2022 election.

California is home to 39,000,000 people. According to the California Secretary-of-State’s Office, 21,940 274 people had registered to vote before October 2022. This is close to the World Population Review estimate that the state has a 55% voter turnout. Interestingly, PILF reported that California sent out 22,184,707 ballots. Of these, 9,781,328 were approved. (See below for details). Ten million were sent to unknown parts and never returned.

It is possible that California lost 49% of its automatically mailed ballots. This is highly unlikely. Or officials lost control and sent them out as a cash cannon at an exhibition.

PILF, an organization that encourages greater voter participation, suggests that California election officials may have a math problem. According to the organization, there is an accounting of all election materials when a polling station opens or closes. When incidents happen, such as when ballots are lost at the poll closing time, it can cause serious problems. Problems accumulate in mass mail elections.” This is a mild way of putting it.

However, “after accounting polling place votes [and] reject[,]] more than 10,000,000 ballots [were] still outstanding, meaning that election officials don’t know what happened.”

This is not necessarily a bad thing. PILF explains that “it’s fair to assume the bulk of these were ignored or eventually thrown out” by intended recipients. And here’s the problem with universal mail-in ballots: It’s a mess.

PILF suggests that the state be able to tell what happened to these ballots.

“Under mass mail election, we can only suppose what happened.” “Mail voting practices leave an insurmountable information gap.” “It is impossible for the public to know the number of ballots that were not counted, sent to the wrong mailboxes, or withheld from the correct recipient by the same person.”

These are the main reasons that some mail-in ballots did not make it back to California.

Californians made more than 120,000 mistakes and their votes were not counted because they weren’t mailed in before the deadline.

A factotum from the elections office could not match the signature on the file.

The voter did not need an ID to cast his vote

You can also see some other reasons, as you will see below.

Universal mail-in voting is not something we support. It results in voters being disenfranchised. How can sending out more ballots disenfranchise voters? There could be 226,250 causes; this is the number of ballots rejected by California election officials. Adams says:

“Mail ballots disenfranchise. Mail ballots can fail to count for many reasons. It is impossible to correct an error made by a voter at home before it is too late. California’s vote-by-mail demonstration should be a warning to other state legislators.”

The universal mail-in ballot’s unstated goal is to flood the area with ballots and leave the sacredness of elections in the hands of the U.S. Postal Service (USPS). Consider that the USPS considers a 94% delivery rate for political mail to be a success. Adams said to me recently that a similar standard would be applied to an airline. Take a look at the debacle at Washington’s only post office before the August primary, July 29, 2022.

California considers everyone who registers at any time to be an active voter. It can take many years before they become inactive voters. Let me give you an example: I am an “active” voter in California, even though I moved from California more than three years back. My voter pamphlet is always in my mailbox. I get my ballots almost every day. California only sent me a postcard in the last election asking if I was still alive or a voter.

Election officials and county counterparts sent ballots to all “active” voters in the state’s database in November 2022. Consider that California lost enough people during the 2020 census to lose a Congressional seat. During COVID, the state lost 144,000 more. Many of these people, including me, were likely to have received ballots. This makes it difficult to imagine how the loss of population has affected the number of “active” voters who were mailed ballots. Did all those ballots go missing? What happened to all those ballots?

What is the denominator for this fraction, anyway?
