House Rejects CA Congressman’s Amendment On A Bill To Stop Foreign Interference In Elections

November 1, 2019 | Media News

Professor Steven F. Huefner was recently referenced in an article by the California Globe titled, “House Rejects CA Congressman’s Amendment On A Bill To Stop Foreign Interference In Elections.”

Steven F. Huefner, a law professor from Moritz College of Law at The Ohio State University, wrote the four ways in which ballot harvesting by political operatives increases the risk of voting fraud:

  • Ballot harvesters can destroy or discard ballots from those whom they know or believe voted for the “wrong” candidate.
  • Ballot harvesters can collect ballots in unsealed envelopes, or open sealed envelopes, and either alter votes or fill in blank portions of undervoted ballots (those in which the voter did not vote in some races).
  • Ballot harvesters can exert improper influence on voters while the voters are completing their ballots.
  • Ballot harvesters can collect unfilled ballots and fill them in themselves.”
