It shouldn’t be made as big a deal as it is. People had the option to do either in 2018. In 2016 something like 20% voted by mail and last I checked the side that is losing their shit over it’s candidate won. And the candidate losing his shit and trying to get creative with “absentee” balloting votes by mail.
Potential issues? Fuck yeah. But we’ve seen issues when we vote in person as well. Why not give people the option? Why not work now to take steps that make it less likely to have issues? Why not spread the election over three days and give people more time to vote?
Plenty of ways to do this and we’ve known corona would play into it for a long time now.
It should be. You can do your taxes, get your tags, check your money, etc. just like all the shit they can send you in the mail. We can trust the mail for birth certificates, census, taxes, social security cards, payments, etc but it can’t be trusted with voting?
