Opinion - How the World Votes by Susan Ruch
The 2020 Presidential election in my opinion was the most corrupt election in the history of the United States. Under the guise of an epidemic, the Covid Virus, we had millions of mail-in-ballots sent throughout the entire United States. Thankfully to President Trump much of the corruption in the swing states plus other states has been exposed. One very important detail which we learned is the ability of the Dominion Voting Systems to be controlled by corrupt software enabling the votes to be counted bi-directionally or fractionally. It was also discovered that Dominion systems have the ability to except photocopied ballots as in Georgia and possibly Arizona as well as the signature verification can be set to a very low rate to accept signatures that are questionable. The Voter Registrar of Clark County, Nevada, Joe Gloria, stated he did this in the 2021 election legislative hearing. These facts demonstrate why we must return to In Person Voting, demand Voter ID, discontinue the use of All Mail-in-Ballots and move away from Electronic Voting Systems such as Dominion and ES&S. Germany and France have already banned electronic voting systems.
In 1976 France banned all mail-in-ballots due to the massive amount of fraud that occurred in Corsica, where postal ballots were stolen or bought, and voters cast multiple votes. Mail-in ballots were used to cast the votes of dead people. Unfortunately, this exactly what occurred in the 2020 Election here in the United States.
In 1991, Mexico's election mandated voter photo IDs and banned absentee ballots. Leading up to that year, the Revolutionary Party used the mail-in-ballots as a method of fraud and also intimidation to win elections. In 2006 absentee ballots were allowed again, but only for those living abroad and who requested them at least six months in advance.
Among the 27 countries in the European Union, 63 percent ban mail-in voting unless living abroad and another 22 percent require a photo ID to obtain a mail-in ballot. Twenty-two percent ban the practice even for those who live abroad. There are 16 countries in the rest of Europe that have more restrictive voter laws. Every single one bans mail-in-ballot voting for those living in the country or at least requires a photo ID to obtain a mail-in ballot. Sixty-three percent don't allow mail-in ballots even for citizens living outside of the country. All require voter ID. 
Japan and Poland have limited mail-in voting certificates for those who have severe health issues. Canada has a special ID voter document. Canadians are trying the mail-in-ballots this September. To do this though they had to apply for a ballot by the week before the election. The ballot has to be delivered by the election day, no exceptions. In India they issue a State Form of photo ID but an electronic ballot is available which is returned by mail. Ironically, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has alleged that postal ballots "will adversely affect the verifiability of a large number of voters, thus, transparency and integrity of the process", and expressed concerns with "instances of manipulation and malpractice" with postal ballots.
Liberals and progressives often argue we should model the United States on Western European countries laws, but you never hear them claiming that we should adopt their voting systems. There is a reason for that — most European countries either ban mail-in voting or require people to use photo IDs to obtain a mail-in ballot. This year France has banned electronic voting systems after what occurred in our 2020 election. All of this demonstrates we must return to in person voting, demand voter ID, discontinue the use of all mail-in-ballots and stop using electronic voting systems like a number of other developed countries have done. The U.S. 2020 election exposed the corruption, now we need we must demand fair, honest elections. We are a Federalist Country therefore state by state will need to repair the damaged election process, not our federal government. God Bless America, Nevada and you.
