There needs to be a time-certain for all ballots to be on site for counting. This would help alleviate the large amount of last-minute absentee ballots to be processed by clerks and their election staff.
An en example, early in the morning of Wednesday Nov 5th in the 20202 election, a van pulled into the TCF counting center and was off-loading ballots. The public was told this was video equipment being delivered along with food. Subsequently a video was obtained that proved that there were around 60 boxes of ballots coming into the TCF center. This kind of lax delivery process fuels speculation of fraud. Require a specific time for all ballots to be delivered, otherwise ballots will be excluded.
