28 million mail-in ballots lost since 2012
Data from the past four election cycles –– 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018 –– show that almost 30 million mail-in ballots have been lost.
In short, the presidential election will be close — and according to what the numbers suggest, millions of American votes would simply vanish with nationwide mail-in voting.
million mail-in voting ballots have disappeared:
In the 2018 election, about 42.4 million ballots were mailed to registered voters. Of those mailed, more than one million were undeliverable, more than 430,000 were rejected, and nearly 10.5 million went missing.
The 2016 election showed similar discrepancies. That year, about 41.6 million ballots were mailed to registered voters. Of those mailed, more than 568,000 were undeliverable, nearly 320,000 were rejected, and close to six million went missing.
Most notably, 10.5 million mailed ballots of 42.4 million total were lost in 2018. In 2016, six million mailed ballots out of 41.6 million went missing as well.
That means between 2016 and 2018 combined, an average of 19.59 percent of mail-in ballots were lost (this doesn’t include mailed-in ballots considered “undelivered” or “rejected”).
Just imagine what would happen if the Democrats got what they wanted and every American had to vote via mail.
The average number of ballots lost over the 2016 and 2018 elections (19.59 percent) times the number of registered voters (153.07 million) totals an average of 29.9 million mailed-in ballots that could be lost in 2020.
Nearly 30 million votes would vanish into thin air this year… if the Democrats get there way.
