Biden Cast a Vote In Person in Delaware Primary After Calling for Mass Mail-In Balloting

If you needed another piece of evidence that the Democrats’ push for wider mail-in voting to protect us all from the nasty coronavirus, this should suffice.
The elderly Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden and his wife on Monday went to vote in person in Delaware’s primary, according to The Epoch Times:
The couple traveled to the New Castle County Board of Elections in Wilmington, a 15-minute car ride from their home.
Biden’s campaign said the nominee and his wife made an appointment to cast their ballots.
Asked what his message is to Delaware voters, Biden said: “Vote, vote, vote.”
He said he was voting early, one day before the primary, because he planned to travel on Sept. 15.
“Because I’m going to be in—where am I tomorrow?” Biden asked those with him. Aides and his wife shouted, “Florida.”
His needing to be reminded where he’s going on Tuesday aside, this is the same Joe Biden who, like the rest of his party, has been employing healthy doses of fear porn to scare Americans into letting Democrats steal the election with mass voter fraud.
How? As experts and studies have noted repeatedly, mass mail-in balloting differs from absentee balloting in very substantial ways, and primarily this way: Absentee ballots have to be requested and certified, but in mass mail-in voting, ballots are sent to every address on chronically outdated voter registration rolls, allowing them to be stolen and filled out by anyone.
Biden said just last month that Americans should be mailing in their ballots.
"Voting by mail is safe and secure," Biden tweeted. "And don't take my word for it: Take it from the President, who just requested his mail-in ballot for the Florida primary on Tuesday."
Yes, well, again, the president and first lady Melania Trump requested absentee ballots; they are not the same as mass mail-in voting.
And the Trump campaign called him out for it.
“Joe Biden is disingenuously misleading millions of Americans on universal vote-by-mail and absentee voting -- they are not the same thing. Fundamentally changing how Americans vote 81 days before Election Day is inviting chaos into our election system," Trump 2020 Campaign Deputy National Press Secretary Ken Farnaso responded Friday.
Biden's jab comes on the heels of weeks of harsh criticism from the president regarding the use of mail-in ballots, telling the American people that mail-in voting would boost bad actors attempting election fraud in the upcoming November election.
What's more, the U.S. Postal Service has also warned that the massive influx of mail-in ballots this year could seriously overwhelm local systems and thus delay the delivery of ballots.
“This mismatch creates a risk that ballots requested near the deadline under state law will not be returned by mail in time to be counted," said Thomas J. Marshall, general counsel for the Postal Service, who further warned that “certain deadlines for requesting and casting mail-in ballots are incongruous with the Postal Service’s delivery standards.”
So, the best thing to do in order to make sure your vote counts is to “Do What Joe Did.” Vote in person.
