Mr. Paul Lehto just sent me a link to this study, which basically supports my position, just say no to Vote-By Mail:
First, restrict or abolish on-demand absentee voting in favor of in-person early voting. The convenience that on-demand absentees produces is bought at a significant cost to the real and perceived integrity of the voting process. On the face of it, early voting can provide nearly equal convenience with significantly greater controls against fraud and coercion. Traditional absentee procedures for cause are still valuable for the limited situations they were originally intended for. States should return to those practices.
There’s a lot of information in this study that I will parse before posting more, but it’s a very informative analysis, and much more astute than many others I have read.
