1. How much will the postage cost for a mail in ballot and is that not considered a poll tax?
2. Not all pieces of mail receive a dated postmark, how can we determine legitimately late delivery versus fraudulent balloting attempts if a postmark is missing?
3. If the USPS is understaffed and going broke under current conditions, then how can it afford this massive balloting effort without collapsing completely from the workload?
4. Covid can live on paper for a few days, aren’t we putting are most basic infrastructure (the entire postal service) under tremendous risk?
5. How can voting be both anonymous and secure, without any verification of voter eligibility?
On Tuesday night, the Trump campaign filed a lawsuit against the state’s election plan. The suit claims that New Jersey’s July 7 primary violated the U.S. Constitution’s Electors and Elections Clauses as well as the 14th Amendment. The suit argues that only the state legislature can enact large changes to elections, and that Murphy is bypassing that process by issuing an executive order.
The lawsuit references several cases of voter fraud conducted through mail-in ballots in New Jersey over the years. It cites Paterson’s May municipal elections as the most recent example.
“The Governor’s inconsistencies, coupled with the Order’s timing amid a nationwide push by the Democratic Party for the same measures, reveal that the Order is less about protecting the health of New Jerseyans and more about protecting the electoral prospects of the Governor’s political party,” the lawsuit states.[...]
And those magic bar codes will figure it all out except those are not post marks but sort marks and the sorting machines that make them are being moved around (removed).

I live in a state with mail in voting. Since we have had it, we have had a Democrat majority in our state Senate, in our major city councils, and bills requiring citizen votes have passed in favor of Democrats by narrow majority for over 20 years. We used to be a red state, with viable industry. It's all gone now.
