2020 is a unique election year. Whereas in the past, a minority of US citizens voted by mail, this year given the massive unemployment rate, tanked economy, and raging deadly pandemic, many more people will opt for mail in voting. About half of US states’ electoral infrastructure is not set up for the unprecedented scale of mail in ballots which are expected in the 2020 presidential election. Due to this year’s enormous scale, critics of mail in voting worry about the number of blank ballots in circulation (a result of them being sent to wrong addresses or inactive voters).
Claims that mail-in voting has led to increased voter fraud lacks evidence according to many reputable sources.
