More Than 200,000 Ballots In Nevada Mailed To The Wrong Addresses

The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), an election integrity watch-dog group, reviewed the 1.3 million mail-in ballots Nevada's Clark County sent during the June primary and found more than 223,000 of the ballots were sent to outdated addresses.

These undeliverable ballots accounted for 17 percent of all ballots mailed to registered voters.

PILF's president and general counsel J. Christian Adams says:

“These numbers show how vote by mail fails. New proponents of mail balloting don’t often understand how it actually works. States like Oregon and Washington spent many years building their mail voting systems and are notably aggressive with voter list maintenance efforts. Pride in their own systems does not somehow transfer across state lines. Nevada, New York, and others are not and will not be ready for November.”

As the Washington Free Beacon points out, “the new figures come as Nevada takes center stage in a debate over mail-in voting. President Donald Trump's campaign sued the state over its plans to mail ballots to every registered voter for the November election. As Democrats across the country push for mail-in voting amid the coronavirus pandemic, critics have said the practice can lead to a number of problems such as lost ballots. Recent reports also showed that 84,000 mail-in Democratic primary ballots cast in New York City were disqualified.”

Jazz Shaw at rightly notes that:

"this is a preview of what we can expect in November. Thus far, many media commentators are only focusing on the fact that it may take longer before the official results can be called. And so what, right? We can afford to wait a few weeks. But if a state like Florida fails to deliver 17% of its ballots to the proper address, you’re going to be looking at a complete collapse in voter confidence and the integrity of the election. And it will be their own fault."
