President Donald Trump said he will only lose the November election if Democrats cheat with mail-in ballots and harvesting.
Citing strong recent examples of voter fraud and ballot mishaps, especially in Democrat run states like New Jersey and Nevada, Trump warned a patriotic crowd in Newport News, Virginia Friday evening.
“That’s the only way we’re going to lose, is if there’s mischief,” Trump said, as millions watched through online streaming and limited television. “And it will have to be on a big scale. So be careful.”
Ahead of 2020 elections, 38 states have made changes to their general election procedures.
Election officials in many jurisdictions are preparing for large numbers of absentee and mail-in ballots. All 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the five permanently inhabited U.S. territories offer absentee/mail-in voting to at least some voters. Voters must meet specific eligibility requirements, such as disability or illness.
In this year’s general election, all but seven of those states (and three territories) allow any voter to vote by mail.
Twelve states generally require voters who cast their ballots by mail to obtain the signature of a witness or notary in order for their vote to be counted.
Six states have suspended, reduced, or otherwise modified their statutory or regulatory witness or notary requirements.
- North Carolina (reduced from two witnesses to one)
- Oklahoma (voters can submit copies of their identification in lieu of having their ballots notarized)
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
The other six states still require voters using absentee or mail-in ballots to obtain the signature of a witness or notary in order to process their ballot.
- Alabama: Two witnesses or one notary
- Alaska: One witness
- Mississippi: Notary or other officer authorized to administer oaths
- Missouri: Notary or other officer authorized to administer oaths
- North Carolina: One witness
- Wisconsin: One witness
Witness signature and notary requirements have been the subject of litigation throughout 2020. States may make further changes to these procedures as the general election approaches.
