Half-Million Mail-In Ballots Nationwide Were Rejected So Far in 2020; New Jersey Ranked in Top 5

TRENTON, NJ – So far in 2020, with COVID-19 as an excuse, states hosted mail-in ballot elections this spring.   In total 558,032 ballots were rejected by NPR this weekend.    In the 2016 general election, just 318,000 ballots were rejected.  This statistic is grim news for the integrity of the 2020 general election where a call for a total mail-in ballot is being sought by Democrats.  Democrat states lead the nation in the number of ballots rejected and voters disenfranchised.

California led the country in disenfranchised voters with 102,428.  The Golden State was followed by Washington State (95,000), New York (84,000), Pennsylvania (37,000), Maryland (35,000) and New Jersey (35,000) by NPR county, but New Jersey’s estimate has been as high as 40,000.
