As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:
A new report from a conservative group on the potential problems with large-scale mail-in voting argues that a recent push from states to send ballots to all registered voters for November’s election would not only expose them to possible fraud but could likely result in a significant waste of taxpayer dollars.
The report, by the Honest Elections Project, cites problems that have already arisen in a number of states showing that including inactive voters – including those who have changed addresses or died – would result in money being spent on ballots that would never reach their intended recipients.
The article goes on to state the following:
When ballots were sent to inactive voters in Nevada’s May primary, ballots were found piled up in post office trays, outside apartment complexes, and on community bulletin boards in and around Las Vegas. One report said ballots were even found in a trash can.
The report states that in Clark County, Nevada, it was estimated that $323,000 would be wasted mailing ballots to inactive voter registrants.

Story 2 – Maryland GOP governor who’s criticized Trump says he’s considering 2024 presidential run
The Hill reports: Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R), a frequent critic of President Trump, on Tuesday announced a virtual book tour for his forthcoming memoir and said he is considering a 2024 presidential bid.
“After this November election is over, regardless of who wins, there are a large majority of Americans who are completely convinced our political system is fundamentally broken, and they’re going to be looking for something different,” Hogan told the New York Times.
“We have an election coming up — we’ll see what happens there — but I’ve been leading the nation’s governors through one of the biggest crises in our lifetime,” Hogan said.
It is about our combined successes in the face of extraordinary challenges – the inside story of moving beyond extremism, breaking partisan gridlock, and bringing people together to advance bold, common-sense solutions that have defined the last six years in Maryland.

Story 3 – Republicans in danger of losing huge portion of their women senators
Politico reports: Senate Republicans could lose nearly half of the women currently in their caucus come November after recently making painstaking gains — the latest potential blow to the party in the Trump era.
Out of nine Senate GOP women serving, four face highly competitive races this year in Arizona, Maine, Georgia and Iowa. It’s a dynamic that exists in part because Republicans have had some success in chipping away at the gender gap in Congress: the Senate GOP currently has an all-time high of women after nearly doubling the number of women in its conference since 2016. House Republicans have also enhanced their recruitment efforts after seeing their ranks shrink in 2018.

Story 4 – Spencer Cox defeats Jon Huntsman in Utah GOP governor primary
The Hill reports: Utah Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox fended off former Gov. Jon Huntsman in the Republican primary race to succeed Gov. Gary Herbert, delivering a blow to one of the state’s most prominent political heavyweights.
Cox prevailed in a crowded June 30 Republican primary with 36.4 percent of the vote, according to The Associated Press. Huntsman received 34.6 percent of the vote.
Utah conducts its elections entirely by mail, but in response to the coronavirus pandemic, state officials accepted mail-in ballots that were postmarked by Election Day, leading to a nearly weeklong delay in the primary results.
Working for his campaign was the best decision I’ve made in my professional life, but being his daughter is by far the greatest gift of all. Love this man with all of my heart, and am heartbroken Utah won’t get to… https://t.co/a3uAnvpP3K
