    My point was just proven. Roberts joined the three liberals to reject a stay (in two cases,
    here and here) of a Pennsylvania Supreme Court Order that permits mail-in ballots to be counted if received three days after Election Day ó even if the envelope has no postmark. Thatís right, even if there is no postmark. Justices Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh would have granted the stay.

If you cant be responsible and send in your ballot by the end of October knowing it needs to get there, sucks to be you.


    Its not like we are expecting the usual full results election night anyway. Everyone is expecting this one to be drawn out a couple days at least, so 3 days is reasonable under the current circumstances.

    Though I think with all these delays reporting on the results shouldnt be public. No need to encourage either side to magically "find" or "lose" ballots due to how the progress is going. (crap! We are behind! Quick! "Find" some more ballots for our side. )
    From what Iíve read, it has to be postmarked by the 3rd or WITHOUT a postmark. Not sure what that means exactly, how something can be non post marked, but thatís where it gets sketchy to me.


    Everyone thinks this benefits democrats, but mail in voting in Florida has been pretty much even, with a dem lead. That lead is being eroded now that early voting has begun, and the republican counties havenít even began early voting yet.

    Ah, thanks, beat me by a minute lol. I thought I read that but didnít have a link. So what does that mean exactly, how can it not have a postmark? Are they hand delivered ballots? Thatís super sketchy and I hope feds are keeping a close eye on this

    the no postmark thing is outright BS. The postmark should be the gold standard 3rd party confirmation that its legit and on time. No postmark? Where is the proof it was received on time and not delayed for other reasons. No postmark should be DQ'd after the polls close.


    Somebody get the damned rail and warm up the tar.... Who has the chicken feathers?

    I suspect that it's bulk mail, or prepaid postage, not mail with an actual stamp, which is how the ballots would be mailed.

    I also get mail without a postmark and it is as you said, junk or prepaid. Jim.

    You'll disenfranchise poor voters by demanding they use a stamp.

    Who the heck has stamps anymore?

    Well, other than my wife who still insists on mailing checks to pay for things.

    Out of curiosity, when they catch somebody with a bunch of bogus ballots, what do they do?
