Buyer’s remorse? Some states allow early voters to change ballots

Donald Trump’s camp is hoping that some states’ allowing voters to recast their ballots will give him a boost after the news the FBI is reopening the case of Hillary Clinton’s email server.

Early voters who have buyer’s remorse can switch their votes before Election Day in several Midwestern states, and the Trump campaign is hoping to peel off some who backed Hillary Clinton but are having a rethink in the wake of the renewed FBI investigation into her emails.

Voters in Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota and Pennsylvania are allowed to void their early or absentee ballots and cast a new vote. While normally not an issue, that could end up playing a bigger role this year, with October surprises and each campaign fighting vigorously to disqualify the other.

Dan Scavino, who handles social media for Donald Trump, sent out a tweet on Tuesday telling early or absentee voters in the four states there was still time to switch if they regretted voting for Mrs. Clinton.
“Feeling duped?” he said in his invitation for do-overs.

He also posted voter hotlines for each state and deadlines for switching. Minnesota’s deadline was the close of business Tuesday, while Wisconsin’s is Thursday and Michigan’s is Monday.

    Just one more reason why early voting is not a good idea.

    Early voting, absentee ballots, no voter ID, and registration and voting the same day, are all conducive to voting fraud.

    Likewise, electronic voting and the Electoral College are also adding opportunity for tampering with the voting process.

    I am in favor of:
    requiring registration to vote;
    registration to be done far enough ahead of voting to permit verification of eligibility;
    absentee ballots only for limited reasons;
    voting only on ‘Election Day’ (absentee ballots will cover the excuses);
    Voter ID required before voting;
    paper ballots;
    verification (by registered, trained poll watchers) of each step of the process.

    This process is fundamental to the proper working of the entire political system the United States of America is founded on. As such, it is too important to introduce unnecessary opportunities for fraud that diminish trust that the system truthfully represent the will of the voters.

    THEY SHOULD BE ALLOWED.

    GOOGLE 2 THINGS, (THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015) AND, (HUMA ABEDIN TERRIOST), LISTEN TO BOTH, THEN VOTE.

    I BELIEVE WASHINGTON IS A NEST OF MUSLIM SPYS.

    IF YOU SEND THIS TO ALL IN YOU EMAIL, AND ASK THEM TO DO THE SAME TODAY, MILLIONS WILL SEE BY TUESDAY AND A LOT WILL CHANGE THEIR VOTE.

    This is good for those who finally see the light and smell the stench. Too bad it took Wikileaks along with others to make them see the light. Now she needs to be prosecuted before we vote for the last time.

    To me, the choice was obvious! Four more years of charlatan, fraud ridden politics, or four years of oxygen filled fresh air, and an attempt to at least stem the tide of losing control of this country to the left and regaining America’s Greatness! Make America Great Again!
