Yea. I would be worried about an all mail in election. It would be too risky.

Mail in ballots have been around since the Civil War, and there has never been an proof of widespread fraud since then. Trump had an investigation into fraud after he won the 2016 election and found no issues. Trump and many of his staff have mailed in their votes in past elections. Why is it an issue now?

Mail-in ballots are more easily subject to voter-fraud.

28 Million Mail-In Ballots Went Missing in Last Four Elections
There’s little doubt that as the number of mail-in ballots increases, so does fraud. A 2012 report in The New York Times noted that voter fraud involving mail-in ballots “is vastly more prevalent than the in-person voting fraud that has attracted far more attention, election administrators say. In Florida, absentee-ballot scandals seem to arrive like clockwork around election time.” According to a Wall Street Journal report on voter exploitation in Hispanic communities in Texas, mail-in ballots have “spawned a mini-industry of consultants who get out the absentee vote, sometimes using questionable techniques.” Poor, elderly, and minority communities are most likely to be preyed upon by so-called ballot “brokers.”

Common sense tells me that presenting your ID to a person for verification in order to vote is much more secure than just mailing in a ballot. How many of you have received mailings to your home destined for the previous owner?

I defer to local election administrators. What do they say?

Conservatives are more independent thinkers - and do not need to side with the agenda of the money funding them and their party as those on the Left do.

Trump is trolling you liberals. He has no intention of delaying the election.

a president cant change the election date. Constitution sets the date. the only way it changes is if congress approves a change... which ain't gonna happen. we've voted by mail for a long time. montana clerk and recorders are calling for an all mail in election.

There's never been a better reason for mail-in voting than right now. Only a complete moron or someone that thought it would help him/her win an election no matter the cost, nor how, would think otherwise. Fortunately most people, be they republicans or democrats, recognize this.

Trump is putting together a new strategy though... I can't wait to hear how Trump supporters are okay with our new postmaster general (who literally owns stakes in UPS that competes with the USPS) is putting new policies and procedures in place to damage the USPS.
