Oregon Man Receives Dead Friend’s Ballot

Oregon Man Receives Dead Friend's Ballot

(TargetLiberty.org) – Oregon is the poster child for mail-in voting. The famously liberal state has been using postal ballots since 1987 and switched exclusively to mail-in voting in 1998 for all elections. It’s regularly praised in left-wing media for showing the country the safety and security of the system. But now, one Oregon man is wondering why, if the state’s mail-in voting process is so reliable, he’s just been sent a ballot with his dead friend’s name on it.

The man, who wants to remain anonymous to avoid harassment, says his friend Richard Gonzales died in April, at age 73. The VA told state authorities that Gonzales had died – proved by the fact they locked his bank accounts around two weeks after his death. But, to his friend’s surprise, in July, he received a postcard addressed to Gonzales, confirming he was registered to vote. On October 15, Gonzalez’s actual ballot arrived in the mail.

This isn’t the only weird incident surrounding Oregon, either:

Ten Oregon residents were convicted of electoral fraud in the 2016 general election, mostly for casting multiple votes. Considering repeated mistakes like the one that led to Gonzales still being registered to vote six months after his death – or to one couple receiving a registration form for their deceased CAT – it seems likely this is just the tip of the iceberg.
