it's easy thing to defraud, because you don't know who mailed in the ballot.

This is the main problem with them, imho.
I'm sure there at least a million ballots mailed out to people who no longer lived there, or were dead, or were not capable of voting for some reason.
And I'm sure a lot of those were filled out illegally and mailed in.
total TDS there, total denial of anything wrong (fantasy land).

The funny thing is how the articles all dismiss even the possibility of fraud in their headlines, ignoring what is actually going on right now in court.
Thanks https://www.theepochtimes.com/ looks pretty good.
I think it's run by Chinese who hate the CCP.
Voting is private and anonymous for a reason.
Ask people about who would be a "good" voter and you'll often get responses that a voter should:
• be knowledgeable about the candidates
• be knowledgeable about the issues
• understand politics, economics, business; all the things that make the country prosperous
• have the country's best interest at heart
• be engaged with society and desire to make a positive difference
• have skin in the game
The problem is that vote-by-mail brings in additional votes from people who do not have any of the above attributes. It brings in people who receive a ballot (because they filled out forms to get a drivers license), but have no interest in voting. It brings in people who would normally not vote because they are so uninformed they don't even know what day to vote or where their polling place is. It brings in people who are too lazy to go to their polling place. Vote harvesting minimizes those attributes even further. Someone just hands over a blank ballot when asked (illegal). Or, someone who is otherwise too lazy and unengaged to vote, is just pestered to fill out a single selection and sign while the harvester waits, takes the ballot, and then does the rest.
Perhaps Republicans should start harvesting as well. But with both parties continuously raising the stakes, the only final outcome is a bidding war for who pays the most money for the ballot. That would decrease the quality of votes further (if it's even possible).
We're looking at the immediate aftermath of what has already been done, and the only path for Trump is to claim fraud. But in the long term we need to increase the quality of votes by promoting things that increase engagement and information of the voters. Vote-by-mail is a very clear step in the wrong direction.
