CNN Interviews "Dead" Voters

One of the many sham claims that the supporters of Donald Trump have made about the 2020 election is that there were dead people who voted. As more and more of these claims are investigated, more and more are getting debunked. Many of these irregularities can be explained by people having the same name. A “Joe Smith” could go into vote and the person checked off at the polling place could be a different “Joe Smith,” who though still on the voter roll, has since died. Republicans have long held the strategy of making these cases seem like widespread voter fraud in order to implement voter suppression tactics. They argue that Democratic machinery is casting votes in favor of their candidates and dead voters are their vehicle for doing it.

CNN investigated some of these “dead voter” claims and found them to be completely bogus. In one example, they researched a case of the late James Blalock, who voted in Georgia. What they found was that the vote was cast by the deceased man’s widow, who used the name “Mrs. James Blalock.” The bottom line is, when the right claims that all these dead people are voting in the United States, there is almost always a clerical error or a common-sense explanation that they’re not telling you about.
