Two of the top Republicans on the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday sent letters to election authorities in New York City, Los Angeles and Ohio that are sending updated mail-in ballots to certain voters who got incorrect or mislabeled ballots, raising concerns about "error or fraud."

The letters ask the jurisdictions about whether or not they have an accurate count of mislabeled or incorrect ballots, how they are ensuring voters are destroying those ballots, how they plan to track any duplicate ballots, and how they jurisdictions will keep people who are submitting mail ballots from voting in-person.
"The right to vote is a hallmark of American democracy and it is critical that we protect the integrity of our elections. But, with issues arising from coast to coast, I'm concerned that blanket mail-in balloting and the dramatic growth in absentee ballots this election cycle is ripe for fraud, abuse and chaos," House Oversight Committee Ranking Member James Comer, R-Ky., said in a statement.

Redundancies are built into our system to ensure every voter is allotted only one vote. Sorting systems will drop out and not accept any replacement ballots that are submitted if a voter has already voted in person.— Franklin Co. Boe (@FranklinCoBOE) October 13, 2020
This Supreme Court decision is absolutely absurd.— Rep. Jody Hice (@CongressmanHice) October 20, 2020
PA can now accept ballots 3 days after the election — even if there's no postmark indicating they were mailed by election day.
Democrats are working to steal this election & John Roberts just handed them PA on a silver platter. https://t.co/FilTNVmrgK
