Another report on the perils of postal voting. This one is here, and was written by Hans A. von Spakovsky, Attorney and Government Affairs Consultant.
His conclusions, whoever he is, are as follows:
- Absentee ballots make the job of vote thieves easier
- No fault absentee ballot laws do not increase voter turnout and may lead to greater declines in turnout
- Absentee ballots make vote buying and voter intimidation easier to commit and make poll watching impossible
- When voters cast absentee ballots in large numbers, the costs of political campaigns, which are already prohibitive for many citizens, are significantly increased
He also cites several studies, so it’s a good source to keep track of for further research just for the footnotes alone.
