Exactly. This is bad and also coming from the guy (me) that is usually not that concerned over stuff but this is worrying me. There is too much opportunity for the party in power to **** with mail-in ballots through something as simple as delaying their arrival to disqualify them. Just a little more food for thought:

Florida - DeSantis - GOP
Ohio - DeWine - GOP
Arizona - Ducey - GOP


Three States that are very important this election. Not liking this idea. There are other ways to deal with it and there is still time to do so. I still say they should have drive-thru polling stations in addition to walk in and mail-in.

Do some more research, this widespread mail-in ballot issue could benefit Trump more than Biden. COVID or not I am voting in person and it appears many people feel the same way. THe trust factor just isn't there once you drop the ballot in the mail.
states like Oregon have figured out how to do mail-in voting without issue for what, like 20 years now?

it is not an inherently flawed method. and doesn't research support lower rates of mail-in fraud than in-person fraud?

EDIT - realize that you are arguing something different.

Ok follow me here for a minute because this is an old political trick they may be using:

1) Sound the alarm for voter fraud and blame the other side
2) Put the other side on the defensive that there is no voter fraud and the accusing party is being ridiculous
3) The accusers actually perpetrate fraud while the other side is on the defensive

Not a new scenario and this is starting to reek like that.

I would find it amazing if the Democrats are the ones to yell voter fraud over mail in ballots after all is said and done.

The last 2 cases involving it have aided the Republicans NC-9 and that WV mail worker (Aid may be a bit strong here)
