Dear Assembly Member,

 

I am writing to urge you to vote in opposition to AB321. It is my understanding that this bill was developed in order to ensure that all Americans have the ability to cast their vote while protecting them from a novel virus that, at one time, still held a great deal of unknowns and yet had a vaccine to combat.

 

Many Nevadans, including me, couldn’t help but wonder if this was an opportunity to capitalize on an emergency in order to pass legislation that law makers knew would open up opportunities for deviousness and fraud. Regardless of our suspicions, it is undeniable that this election process would be susceptible to vulnerabilities that the county and many states therein had never faced and yet, had very little time to prepare for. This alone, raises enormous questions as to the overall integrity of the election process within Nevada and the United States as a whole.

Bills like AB321 are essentially proposing to make these changes permanent. If I had doubts about the sincerity of efforts like these, I can tell you that if this bill moves forward, all my suspicions will be confirmed. Mass mail in ballots hold far too many liabilities that challenge the integrity of the election process. If the primary objective here is to ensure the maximum participation of voters – we can figure out ways to do it without enlisting a voting method that is riddled with problems.

Until we can ensure that mail in ballots will not be mailed, filled out and returned by the wrong person, that ballot harvesting will not take place, and that poll workers or other “in-betweeners” cannot alter or discard these ballots, we need to stick with traditional election methods or consider some other method that will eliminate these concerns. If not, the overall intention is clear with this legislation – use what means necessary to tip the scales in favor of a single political party.

As a result, I am adamantly opposed to any legislation that allows for the permanent use of mail-in ballots for any state or national election process.

 

 

Respectfully,

[Your Name]
