Well, to put it as simply as I can, it makes it very tough to “exploit” voting rules. As The Other McCain explains…..
A couple of months ago, I had a long phone conversation with an old friend from Douglas County, Georgia. Among other things, we talked about the election there and, when I mentioned suspicions of fraud, my friend said he didn’t believe Democrats had fabricated votes in Fulton County. Instead, he said, they had exploited the Secretary of State’s decision (contradicting state law) to permit widespread mail-in voting with drop boxes. What Democrats did with that loophole, my friend explained, was to deploy an army of ballot harvesters who were soliciting votes in grocery store parking lots and they knew whose votes they were looking for, IYKWIMAITYD. So, according to my friend, the election wasn’t exactly stolen, but it was not exactly legitimate, either.
That experiment in mass mail-in voting was made necessary, according to its defenders, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Be that as it may, the Georgia legislature was determined to prevent any future such improvisations, and passed a new election law which, as Gov. Brian Kemp has said, makes it “easier to vote, but harder to cheat.”
Without cheating, can Georgia Democrats win? They don’t think so:
GO READ IT ALL! The key to preventing fraud in voting is to put up barriers to, let’s call it, creative shenanigans in registering voters who, well, may not even exist, this piece by Mr. McCain lays out ways it can happen
