Democratic Slogan: Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste

If you've been following the news, the Democrats and their allies are already pushing for an all-mail election this November on the pretext it would be dangerous to vote in person.
First, over 65's who are in the higher risk Covid-19 group already can vote by mail in Texas and other states.
Second, reliable research shows that vote by mail is the easiest voting method to defraud. The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) has studied this in depth and has found numerous areas of concern.
(1) Between 2012 and 2018, 28 million ballots mailed to registered voters went missing.
(2) PILF studied the proposed ballot by mail plan for New Mexico now subject to litigation and found:
(a) Inadequate voter lists, specifically 1,500 voters 100 years old or older. 1,681 registrants were found to have published obituaries. Those who passed away and still on the rolls showed death dates from 1983 to 2018.
(b) In-county/in-state duplicate registrations. 1,584 found in a small sampling effort.
(c) Use of non-residential commercial addresses for voter registrations. 190 instances of registrants not living at home which under N.M. law requires street address where you reside. Note: This is a problem in Texas where commercial addresses and post office box private companies are used.
The problem with ballot by mail is that it opens up significant opportunity to commit fraud by "ballot harvesting." As described by Joel Ross of Citadel Realty Advisors here is what is going on here:
"If you can't get them (the liberals) to go vote use vote harvesting which is what all the vote by mail is all about. It is a way to control huge numbers of votes… What Trump objects to with mail in voting, happened in CA where they allowed vote harvesting, where Democratic operatives sat in a living room and got people to sign mail in ballots on election day, and then when they got delivered they reversed the outcome in six (6) Congressional seats where Republicans had won at the ballot box."
State Senator and former Harris County Tax Assessor (and Voters Registrar) Paul Bettencourt observed:
"The real problem in Texas is voter harvesting, which is one person votes for other people and sometimes as many as 500. Our laws have rules currently and our prosecutors have shown a reluctance to pursue them. Vote harvesters actually sell the votes they can 'harvest.'"
"We need to clean up our elections before opening doors to widespread fraud."
