I heard of a story where this man ran for office. He was doing well until the absentee and mail in ballots were totaled and then he lost. Well he did some looking and he went to a nursing home and talked to some of the residents. One ladies story was interesting - she was blind so he asked her how she filled out her absentee ballot? She said “oh this NICE young man helped me out. He read the ballot, and I told him what I wanted and he filled it out for me”.
I have heard of stories like this where maybe the residents fill in their ballots, then someone else drops them off for them (how nice of them). Or even where if someone is incoherent, someone will fill out there ballot for them because that person “knows how they would vote”.
Or they feed them false information about a candidate in order to influence their vote.
A guy on my Facebook page said his mother had someone offer to take in her absentee ballot.
How common is this?
