Ballot Rejection Rates Historically Low in Key Battlegrounds

Mail-in bal­lot­ing rejec­tion rates from the 2016 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion to this one, par­tic­u­lar­ly in bat­tle­ground states, have dra­mat­i­cal­ly shrunk to infin­i­tes­i­mal num­bers, accord­ing to reports.

Despite mas­sive warn­ings about mail-in bal­lot rejec­tion rates being around 1% his­tor­i­cal­ly, 3% for first-time absen­tee bal­lot vot­ers and as high as 6.5% in some states, the rejec­tion rates in 2020 con­test­ed states like Geor­gia, Penn­syl­va­nia, and Neva­da were “strik­ing­ly” low, accord­ing to U.S. data (2016 from a con­gres­sion­al report and 2020 from the U.S. Elec­tions Project run by the Uni­ver­si­ty of Florida):

Geor­gia: 6.5% rejec­tions in 2016 to a mere 0.2%, more than 30 times lower.
Penn­syl­va­nia: 1% in 2016 to 0.03% this year.
Neva­da: 1.6% in 2016 to around 0.75% this year.
Michi­gan: 0.5% in 2016 to 0.1% this year.
North Car­oli­na: 2.7% in 2016 to 0.8% this year.
A num­ber of irreg­u­lar­i­ties can lead to the rejec­tion of a mail-in bal­lot, includ­ing for­got­ten or sig­nif­i­cant­ly dif­fer­ent sig­na­tures, mis­placed addressed, or improp­er mark­ings or completion.
