California now allows “Ballot Harvesting”. In other states, if you ballot harvests, you go to prison. Especially, when you consider that some of those 7 seats were decided as late as 3 weeks after the election.
The reason it’s illegal in other states that you can commit voter fraud and it’s almost impossible to prove. Ballot harvesting is when a third party gathers ballots from people and they turn in all the ballots they gathered. On election night, all seven races were led by Republicans, including one race where the Republican led by a whopping 6.4% of the vote.
They simply kept counting votes until they won all seven races.
The Daily Caller has more on this outrageous practice used by Democrats.
The results drew the attention of House Speaker Paul Ryan.
“California just defies logic to me,” said Ryan at a Washington Post live event. “We were only down 26 seats the night of the election, and three weeks later, we lost basically every California contested race. This election system they have — I can’t begin to understand what ‘ballot harvesting’ is.” (RELATED: Bloomberg Drops Millions On California Dems Ahead Of Midterm Elections)
The stunning turnaround in California, of all states, can be attributed to several factors, as conservative critics like The Federalist’s Bre Payton wrote, but the most significant of those seemed to be the practice of “ballot harvesting.”
Passed as a barely noticed change in the state’s vote by mail procedures in 2016 and signed by then-Governor Jerry Brown, California’s AB 1921 allows voters to give any third party — not just a relative or someone living in the same household, as was previously the law — to collect and turn in anyone else’s completed ballot.
Called “ballot harvesting,” critics say the practice is ripe for fraud. Consider “Lulu,” who was recorded trying to “harvest” what she thought was a Democratic voter’s ballot in Rep. Knight’s district.
