Vermonters, respond: should mail-in voting be permanent? - True North Reports

The think-tankers at the Ethan Allen Institute want your opinion about making mail-in voting permanent. They’re not the only ones pondering it - so are Secretary of State Jim Condos, likely Senate Pro Tem Becca Balint, and Gov. Phil Scott.

"EAI’s November Survey is the product of that question. A few days later, Governor Scott was already proposing the possibility of mailing ballots for Town Meeting Day, which is set for Tuesday, March 2, 2021. The survey asks a single question “should Vermont mail ballots to all registered voters for every future statewide election, like we did in the 2020 election? (Assuming Covid-19 is under control by 2022).” 55 of you responded so far in just the first week of the survey."

    I think voters who want to vote by mail should do as we’ve always done in Vermont – request and absentee ballot. Our economy doesn’t need the added expenditure of printing and mailing out ballots to people that don’t request them. These funds should be used to help stimulate jobs.

    Not whloesale mailings, Most can get to town hall in a 12 hour day.
    Requesting Absentee ballots is great and gives everyone full chance to vote, if they can lift a finger,
    and likely they will be up to date on issues to make responsible choices.
