Despite running the most popular candidate in generations, President Trump was denied victory in 2020 to Joe Biden, a corrupt politician, with dementia who did not campaign. Trump won on election night but then millions of votes trickled in until Joe Biden was awarded state after state days after the election.
In 2022, Republicans vowed to wait to cast their vote in several states. In Arizona, the election officials jammed up the machines on Election Day. Over 60 percent of voting centers had broken machines that were unable to count the wrong-sized ballots. Thousands of conservatives, who made up more than 72% of Election Day voters were denied their right to vote.
Democrats believe when over 61% of machines are inoperable on Election Day – this makes a free and fair election. Democrats believe when tens of thousands of unaccounted-for ballots end up being counted after Election Day, this makes a free and fair election. Democrats believe unattended drop boxes where operatives can dump stacks of ballots in the days leading up to Election Day make a free and fair election. Democrats believe that bloated voter rolls and eliminating voter ID laws make up a free and fair election.
Democrats harvested ballots, voted early and used bloated voter rolls and mail-in ballots to win in 2020 and 2024.
By the time election day came, Democrats already had a huge advantage.
Now Republicans think that if they push their voters to vote early they can beat a corrupt voter system.
Republicans are not serious. They are arguably on the other side.
The Republican Party is dangerous at this point. They cannot accept our election systems are broken and corrupt and until they do – they will continue to lose.

‘Beat Dems at their own game’: GOP embraces major change ahead of 2024 fights
Republicans are going on the offensive ahead of the 2024 cycle, vowing to defeat Democrats by using one of their greatest assets against them: early voting.
The Republican National Committee posted a short tweet on Friday, claiming the GOP would “beat the Dems at their own early voting game in 2024.” The statement comes as Republicans have begun reconsidering their stance on early voting and ballot harvesting, particularly after the party’s lackluster performance in the midterm elections.
“Our voters need to vote early,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told Fox News in December after the 2022 elections. “There were many in 2020 saying, ‘Don’t vote by mail, don’t vote early,’ and we have to stop that and understand that if Democrats are getting ballots in for a month, we can’t expect to get it all done in one day.”
Since the 2020 election, several Republicans have taken a staunch anti-absentee and mail-in voting stance, claiming the practice has made elections susceptible to widespread voter fraud. Former President Donald Trump especially clung to these theories, claiming baselessly that such fraud was responsible for his loss in the 2020 presidential election.

For the last two elections, when it comes to voting, the two parties have not even been playing the same game.
