Pelosi's Coronavirus Bill Pushes Nationwide Ballot Harvesting for 2020 Election
Democrats’ latest coronavirus relief package also demands mail-in voting
House Democrats unveiled their whopping $3 trillion coronavirus relief package on Tuesday that was, as expected, loaded with far-left demands.
Among the Democrats' wish list of measures are requirements to introduce nationwide ballot harvesting and mail-in voting ahead of the November presidential election.
California changed its rules before the 2018 midterm elections to allow persons other than family members to collect and submit ballots but the practice is still illegal in many states.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) newest legislation is packed with an effort to open up the radical voting methods to every registered voter in America.
The bill seeks to nationally legalize ballot harvesting for everyone on the voter rolls.
Since the 2012 election, for example, about 28.4 million mail-in ballots have gone missing.
Also included in the plan is the legalization of ballot harvesting, allowing political operatives to collect and deliver as many ballots as they want so long as they are not paid based on the number of ballots they deliver.
This loophole still allows these operatives to be paid.

The plan guts voter ID requirements and witness signature requirements for mail-in voting.
For instance, states would be effectively banned from requiring an ID from a registered voter requesting an absentee ballot.
Likewise, states would be banned from requiring witness signatures on mail-in ballots — gutting the process used to trace voter fraud.

In North Carolina, prosecutors said they were able to trace voter fraud in a highly-contested congressional race by using the state’s requirement for witness signatures on mail-in ballots.
The case revealed that more than 160 mail-in ballots were signed by the same political operatives.
States which allow voter registration when a resident obtains their driver’s license would be banned from requiring registrants to provide their entire Social Security Number — only mandating they provide their last four digits.
The plan is similar to Pelosi’s March coronavirus relief package that sought to nationally legalize ballot harvesting in elections and provide all registered voters with mail-in ballots.
