It Begins: Mail In Ballots Could Change The Election

Many Utahns are now upset because they believe a mistake invalidated their most recent votes, adding to the ongoing worries about issues with mail-in ballots that threaten the legitimacy of American elections.

Every registered voter in Utah receives a mail-in ballot for each election. Postmarking the ballot by a specific date is necessary for its counting. The deadline for the primary election that took place towards the end of last month was June 24.

Why do our votes go across state lines? When Utah state election officials travel to Las Vegas, of all places, spend days there, and then return across state lines, where is the chain of custody?

Nonetheless, a number of Utah residents assert that they mailed in their ballots by the deadline, but officials later declined to count them due to an erroneous June 25 postmark. They claim that the U.S. Postal Service sent all of those ballots across state lines to Las Vegas for processing, which is partially to blame for the issue. Apparently, the Las Vegas facility has erroneously dated so many mail-in ballots that opponents have even termed them “Vegas cancellations.”

Furthermore, certain officials have proven that the votes should be valid. According to Iron County Clerk Jon Whittaker, he personally witnessed multiple invalidated hand-stamped ballots with postmarks as early as June 20. Postal workers promptly addressed these mail-in ballots at the mail facility upon the voter’s request.

Even though they arrived at the mail stream on the 24th, the arduous 340-mile journey to the Vegas sort center and back likely resulted in their stamping after midnight. This is not acceptable. Whittaker wrote an email to USPS.

For that reason, Whittaker said, the final vote total will only include 14 of the 429 allegedly late mail-in ballots from Iron County.

The Republican primary between Colby Jenkins, the opponent, and incumbent Republican Rep. Celeste Maloy—who is backed by former President Donald Trump—for Utah’s second congressional district is very significant. Out of over 107,000 votes cast, Maloy has a mere 314 lead as of Friday.

Jenkins believes he has to acquire a net of roughly thirty more votes in order to force a recount. About 350 ballots are “in postmark limbo” in Washington County, which favors Jenkins by nearly 20%, according to Jenkins, who spoke with Blaze News about the situation.

“Why do our votes go beyond state lines? He said, “Where’s the custody chain by Utah election officials traveling to, of all places, Las Vegas, sitting for days, and then returning across state lines?”

Jenkins claims that in addition to the allegedly late ballots, over 500 ballots within Washington County remain uncounted. According to Jenkins, the primary reason for this is that the ballot signatures do not appear to match. Jenkins thinks he may have more than enough votes to compel a recount between the 350 “late” ballots and the 500 uncured votes.

Jenkins is not alone in thinking that Utah’s existing system may have denied voters their right to vote. Paul Cozzens, the commissioner for Iron County, has received similar grievances from his residents.

“We mailed our ballots around the 22nd, 23rd, or 24th,” my pals told me as we were chatting.” Cozzens disclosed this to Blaze News. “I personally brought those ballots to the post office before 4 o’clock,” my friend texts me.

Five sworn documents, according to Cozzens, are from people making similar claims. He deemed such affidavits to be “quite credible.”

Hundreds of voters followed state law, but their ballots will not count; therefore, Cozzens stated he “can’t, in good conscience, do so on Monday afternoon, when Iron County commissioners were expected to vote to certify the election results.”

In keeping with his word, Commissioner Mike Bleak cast the crucial vote in favor of certification during the Monday meeting, leaving Commissioner Kenneth Carpenter—a stand-in for Commissioner Marilyn Wood—to cast the final vote.

Carpenter asked for a 24-hour postponement of the final vote so that the county may consult with the state attorney general’s office. The motion was approved.

Carpenter has doubts about the purportedly tampered votes, telling Blaze News that they have produced a “moral dilemma” and a “difficult scenario.” He did, however, stress that he must abide by the law.

He told Blaze News, “I believe that the legislation is very clear that the mail-in votes have to be post-dated the day prior to Election Day.” “And if they are not post-dated before Election Day, we cannot count them.”

  1. It’s axiomatic: The more complex you make an operation, the more things will go wrong with it. I fear the motives behind promoting election complexities are less than honorable.

  2. Paper ballots and finger print . Should be required. This would really put a stop to illegals and dead peoples votes . And absolutely no DNC or GOP or any other party Just Legal Americans to hold office . And illegals must have a citizenship card to prove they are now legal . No country in the world allows people from other countries to come and vote in their elections . California has nothing but illegals in their government . And now the legal citizen is run out ! Except the idiots they put in DC . No country except America allows this . This is their agenda of removing America. Now tell me how many fools sit in our entire government . Because of illegals / democrats and republicans who want to steal our country blind. As for me I want my representatives to represent legal Americans no matter their color. So far two groups of color are the benefactors of everything . Including representation. No drivers licenses as ID . They give illegals those. In order to vote one must be a legal citizen . Mail in ballots / stuffed fake votes in ballot boxes give us the evil fools we already have plus more. No illegal has any rights to anything They need to be deported ASAP . Along with every person who has been part of this invasion. If our laws were upheld the borders would be lined with bodies People who come the right way don’t invade . They Have invaded our sovereign nation . They are suppose to be shot. Send the so called elected morons that cause this back with them . May they lie with their choices of treasonous destruction . Democrats are demons who crave power. Republicans are nothing but their anus connections Democrats agendas are about nothing but death to anyone who doesn’t want to be ruled by their insane demonic agendas. I can’t believe we have as many braindead Americans as we do. Only a fool who wants what Democrats and rinos are doing . They have taken America back over 200 yrs . America had progressed to the point we were self sufficient . Just wait until their man made disasters hit you And dumbo has tried to remove the gas stoves and gas vehicles and refrigerators and air conditioning The list is enormous It’s everything a human needs to survive. Now everything including our medicines are made by our enemies . And illegals have robbed us blind And Every other country has what belongs to our people . Democrats are running on the Abortions Their Agenda to rid America of its people who would continue America. Their plan is to turn America brown. Blacks think they are their special people Not so ! And it’s about to be front and center. Why do you think abortions and welfare were created by the plantation owners which have always been democrats. And mail in ballots give them more illegals and fake and dead votes. But in reality democrats/ republicans have made every one vote of a legal American null and void with at least 10 illegals votes to your one.
    Keep voting for the same people no matter which party expecting a different outcome And May God take over before another demon democrat ever sits in any of our chambers. Especially our house And let’s hope that person is for Americans. It is by the way America not Africa or Ukraine Or Mexico etc:
    And let’s hope that person has more than two brain cells . And can find the toilet instead of bending over and taking a crap in his depends while standing next to a world leader at And International event.
    Please God take over.
