GOP Mail Ballot Scare Tactics Continue To Backfire

  • 3 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

One of the principal unintended consequences we’ve been watching for from President Donald Trump’s low-information crusade against mail ballots is potentially damaging mistrust in the election system instilled in Republican voters, which could impact turnout in an election all polls already show Republicans set to lose badly.

This alert from Gunnison County Republicans late last week shows it’s a real concern:

Of course, Donald Trump is very much down on drop boxes for mail ballots too, so it’s possible this advice will be updated at some point. A large percentage of Colorado voters already utilized drop boxes before this election, out of convenience not paranoia–but despite the ongoing chicanery from the Trump-appointed postmaster general of the United States Postal Service, we do believe our local postal workers will get your properly postage-paid mail ballot to your clerk within the specified timeframes if you select that option. And new for 2020, every voter in Colorado can track their mail ballot from start to finish to make sure it happens.

So take heart, Gunnison County Republicans–mail it in, drop it off, or vote in person as long as you don’t give each other COVID! Just make sure you don’t get so caught up fearmongering about voting that your own voters decide not to bother.
