Between 2012 and 2018, 28.3 million mail-in ballots remain unaccounted for, according to data from the federal Election Assistance Commission. The missing ballots amount to nearly one in five of all absentee ballots and ballots mailed to voters residing in states that do elections exclusively by mail.
States and local authorities simply have no idea what happened to these ballots since they were mailed – and the figure of 28 million missing ballots is likely even higher because some areas in the country, notably Chicago, did not respond to the federal agency’s survey questions. This figure does not include ballots that were spoiled, undeliverable, or came back for any reason.
Although there is no evidence that the millions of missing ballots were used fraudulently, the Public Interest Legal Foundation, which compiled the public data provided from the Election Assistance Commission, says that the sheer volume of them raises serious doubts about election security.

The acquittal is illegitimate because the impeachment is illegitimate. There was no trial because the Democrats avoided the scrutiny of a trial.
The entire mess developed rapidly from the the fact that the Inspector General investigated a contrived “whistleblower” letter. Schiff created the rules, to create the letter, to create the committee inquiry. He issued subpoenas, even though the House did not vote for the impeachment process to begin. Only the House impeaches—not Schiff—therefore, the House calls witnesses by vote, not Schiff from his secret basement. By the time the House approved the impeachment process, Adam Schiff had already sent out dozens of subpoenas which, having been done before the House vote, were all legally invalid. This was nothing more than a case of premeditated punishment seeking a crime.
Every action after that unauthorized inception was invalid. The House impeachment articles should have been thrown out of court on the first day.
Trump was guilty of doing his job, which involved investigating a crime based on prima facie evidence. His impeachment was an Obstruction of Justice, used to prevent the investigation of the perpetrators of the crime. In this case, the perps they were protecting were their own.
