It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. We have all heard that story about the cat that got the absentee ballot in the mail. If you haven’t heard about it
the cat belongs to a “friend” who is never named.
Here in Minnesota, the only way that cat could get a ballot is if it requested the ballot as a registered voter or if someone else ordered a ballot for the cat. The cat would need a social security number or a Minnesota driver’s license number.
I have asked for information about the owner of the cat but that is always a closely guarded secret. We are just supposed to believe the story. We never find out if the cat’s voted or if the ballot was counted. We never find out who the cat voted for.
If a cat did vote that would be voter fraud. The people who are outraged by the fraud are totally unwilling to turn the cat but they instead protect the cat’s identity.
I am going to go out on a limb and say that the story about the cat is made up.
Voter suppression is a much bigger problem than voter fraud is. For the 2020 election Please put your plan in place for voting.
Consider early in-person voting or using an absentee ballot and dropping it off at your county election office or mail it back by Mid-October and track it to make sure it is counted. Personally, I can tell you that neither snow, nor rain, nor dark of night nor fascism can stop me from voting.
Vote like your life depends upon it and if you happen to hear about that cat get a name and address.
