The left idealizes mail-in balloting as a way to get more people to vote. The political right has warned of potential voter fraud. A discovery in Louisville substantiates the latter’s concern. A contractor in Eastern Jefferson County discovered 112 unopened absentee ballots in a dumpster. By the way, this part of town happens to be a Republican area.  Since the discovery a U.S. Postal Service worker has been fired and an investigation is underway.  The Jefferson County Clerk says that any voter who fails to receive an absentee ballot by Oct. 28 “can go to any polling site, sign an affidavit saying they did not receive the ballot and vote in person.” There are eight days until the final day to vote on November 3.
