U.S. President Donald Trump has requested a mail-in ballot for Florida's Tuesday primary election, despite weeks of criticizing the practice.
Following multiple claims that mail-in voting was unsafe and vulnerable to fraud, Trump changed his mind about the practice last week, at least in Florida."Whether you call it Vote by Mail or Absentee Voting, in Florida the election system is Safe and Secure, Tried and True," Trump tweeted last Tuesday. "Florida's Voting system has been cleaned up (we defeated Democrats attempts at change), so in Florida I encourage all to request a Ballot & Vote by Mail!"
Meanwhile, Trump's campaign and the GOP are suing Nevada over its new vote-by-mail law. Nevada officials joined several states that plan on automatically sending voters mail ballots. Two states, California and Vermont, moved earlier this summer to adopt automatic mail ballot policies.
Five other states have relied on mail-in ballots since even before the coronavirus pandemic raised concerns about voting in person, but there is no evidence to support Trump's assertion that voting by mail leads to widespread fraud.Florida voters must request a mail-in ballot in order to receive one.
Statewide in-person early voting began Saturday in Florida while the state continues to grapple with a high number of coronavirus cases, highlighted by more than 8,800 fatalities and at least 550,000 known virus cases since the pandemic began.Voters are mainly choosing party nominees for Congress and the state Legislature. While both parties have pushed voters to cast ballots by mail in recent elections, this year there's been a stronger push during the pandemic.
More than 4.2 million Florida voters have requested a vote-by-mail ballot, and nearly 1.5 million had been returned by Saturday morning, according to a Department of State website. That compares to nearly 1.3 million cast in the entire 2016 primary election.Read more: CTV News »

Is he not the ONLY one trying to stop mail in Any canadians reading this, I once thought trump was the enemy too. Until I got rid of cable and realized mainstream media is the enemy. They lie and focus on people or events to distract you from our very own corruption. In Florida Oh, I get it. So that is where he is going to retire after November. 😉
He’s coming again.. like it or not CTV. Track down Trudeau, he’s robbing Canada.. DemonRats are trying to Rig the election .. If Trump wins re-election your rights are gone. He will become dictator president for life ABSENTEE BALLOTS were sent. There is no issue with absentee ballots, Trump has said as much. The issue is with a hundred million ballots being sent EVERYWHERE with no ID or signature requirements. The potential problems with this are obvious, but CTV is playing games here.
WE 'charity' sells properties, lays off staff? “It never stops, this fetid, foul stew of corruption and moral blindness. Even during a pandemic, the Trudeau government’s descent into the muck continues unabated. There’s a name for a government like Justin Trudeau’s – It’s a kleptocracy.” W.K. Did you say peace broke out in the Middle East?

Absentee Affidavit Ballots not mail in ballots Different than what WA and OR do This is not the way you pick the leader of the world.. Show up and vote. You misspelled absentee ballot. EnemyOfThePeople
Yes, because they want to see how many people vote for the candidate they know best. The Kremlin sock puppets are lying to you. Absentee ballots and mail-in ballots are interchangeable and fraud is beyond minimal. 250,000,000 votes have been cast by mail in the past 20 years. Trump is trying to cheat his way to a 2nd term by torpedoing the post office.
Defund CTV red pilling their readers with a daily dose of biased news. OUCH. After all the warnings they send Unrequested Ballots to the worst possible address. FakeNews EnemyOfThePeople Stupid arguments. Vote in person with ID This article completely neglects the word “absentee ballot.” There is a big difference between requesting an absentee ballot and the practice of universal mail-in ballots, but CTV isn’t being honest. This isn’t journalism, this is trash 🗑
Absentee ballot.... fake news WRONG. Absentee ballots. Is there a reason you keep conflating ABSENTEE VOTING & UNIVERSAL MAIL IN BALLOTS? Uh huh. FAKENEWS There's nothing wrong with absentee ballots, or mail-in-ballots being REQUESTED for another reason. The problem is with a hundred million ballots mailed out all over the countryside without proper ID's, signatures, etc. CTV knows this, but is conflating the two issues.
No, it's an absentee ballot not a mail-in ballot. Absentee ballots are requested by the voter, mail-in ballots are sent to animals and dead people. Bone spurs prevent Trump from walking to the voting booth. fuckery is afoot
Trump opposes U.S. postal service funding, admits mail-in voting hard without itU.S. President Donald Trump said Thursday that he opposes additional funding for the U.S. Postal Service, acknowledging that his position would starve the agency of money Democrats say it needs to process an anticipated surge in mail-in ballots during the coronavirus pandemic. Maybe just for a day you could show something other then your blatant bias against Trump...just one 🙏 Communities should be organizing private, trusted couriers as back up. Trump needs to be stopped. Post Offices operate by anti Trump unions. Everyone should be home during Covid which makes voting in person the best viable option.

Analysis: Trump may not be able to attack Kamala Harris like he did Hillary ClintonWithin minutes of Biden \u0027s announcement on Tuesday, Trump had called Harris \u0027nasty,\u0027 \u0027horrible\u0027 and \u0027disrespectful, while his campaign painted her as an extremist He’s not debating Kamala Harris.

Well, that’s why you folks still employ Rexie... 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣. More.
