Opinion: for sake of fair, prompt election, vote in person if possible - Fractals of Change

If you can march in a protest or a Fourth of July celebration, you can march to the voting booth.

“We’ve already seen in primaries that mass numbers of mail ballots lead to long delays in tabulating results, especially if ballots which were mailed but not received by election day are allowed. A long delay in knowing who the next president is going to be would be a terrible event for the country. It may happen; but better if we can avoid the delay by voting in person. Mail ballots are more vulnerable to fraud than in-person ones, if only because we’ve had less experience with the former than the latter. So far there has only been one egregious case of such fraud discovered (committed by a Republican). But we cannot be naïve about either the number of people who would like to hack an election or the ingenuity of hackers. Mail in votes will be subject to even more challenges than hanging chad; some challenges will be legit; all need to be heard. If you want to reduce the chance of dragged out election results, vote in person if you can."

    Check out the the experiment that CBS News did on mail in voting ! They mailed out 100 ballots from different locations to the same post office and tracked the progress in getting them back. Even CBS had to come to the conclusion that mail in voting is not trustworthy.

    This election is set to be a white hot mess.
