Massachusetts’ New Voting Law Allows State To Count Dead People’s Votes

While the handling of COVID-19 has sent the Democrats into a circus of hysteria, this next story is just a sample of how deranged the party has become. Thanks to the left, it is now temporarily legal for the state of Massachusetts to count the votes of people who have died before the election. The new law passed by the state’s legislature gives Democrats the opportunity to steal the election using the silent voice of the deceased.

Before the new pandemic style voting system, residents of Massachusetts would have their ballot canceled if they were to die before the election night. This was due in part with the ever-changing platform of politics. People change and therefore their vote could change too. But thanks to COVID and the Massachusetts Secretary of State Bill Galvin, the temporary law could become the new normal for how elections are handled. While Massachusetts is making headlines, they aren’t the first state to pass similar laws.

Giving a press conference, Galvin said, “These are people who are alive and competent when they voted, but they may have died unexpectedly after they voted. In past times, if the local officials knew they were dead — had died — even though they had legally voted when they cast the ballot, they would have discarded the ballot, not counted it.”

While Galvin makes it sound like he has the people’s best interest in mind, let’s take a look at just how the law came to pass. To do that, one needs to only go back to the state’s early voting expansion bill. While heavy, there is a little section with a single line that rejects officials from not counting votes, “solely because the voter became ineligible to vote by reason by death after casting the ballot.” Many citizens didn’t even know the line was slipped into the massive expansion bill, but the Democrats sure did.

As for the impact this could have on the election, Galvin says the change in numbers should be extremely low. He told reporters, “It’s certainly not going to affect the outcome of the election. And if it were to — I speculate here — but if it were to, obviously there’d probably be some follow-up litigation. But since I’m already reaching my quota of being sued this year, I’m not going to go there.”

Do you agree that protesting is acceptable, but rioting is not?
