‘Ballot-harvesting’ burns Democrats in North Carolina

Is ‘ballot-harvesting,’ finally about to get discredited?

Seems the slimey practice of dispatching political operatives to “collect” ballots from voters as a “service” to them, and, umm, turn them in to electoral authorities for them, with no chain of custody, may just be finally exposed as the recipe for fraud that it is.

That’s because this time, a Democrat’s ox was gored, not a Republican’s.

It certainly seems the case in North Carolina, where a GOP operative in the state’s 9th district seems to have gone ballot-harvesting, flipping Democrat Dan McCready’s congressional seat red. Republican Mike Harris officially won that election, but in the wake of new ballot-harvesting allegations, McCready has “withdrawn” his concession.

An investigation into whether political operatives in North Carolina illegally collected and possibly stole absentee ballots in a still-undecided congressional race has drawn attention to a widespread but little-known political tool called ballot harvesting.

It’s a practice long used by special-interest groups and both major political parties that is viewed either as a voter service that boosts turnout or a nefarious activity that subjects voters to intimidation and makes elections vulnerable to fraud.
