Re: Isn't Mail in (postal) voting the same as absentee voting?

Still, I don't like the idea of nationwide mail in voting.
So, the local election committee mails out ballots based on
registered voters from the prior election. Ones who may have
moved or passed away? I mean, how many nationwide ballots
would they have to mail? 150 mil?
I also read where some states will include a form where the person
receiving the ballot will sign that form which states they are basically
swearing under oath that they are who the ballot says they are.
No problems there as I'm sure everyone is honest.

Re: Isn't Mail in (postal) voting the same as absentee voting?

In Washington State, 40+ years ago, I registered for absentee voting. Now we have everyone voting by mail, no major problems I am aware of. We are all absentee/mail voters.

From the office of the Secretary of State:

Q: Can the election be rigged?
Washington employs the recommendations raised by security experts, and have done so for years. Such as paper based systems, including voter verifiable paper audit trails, independent testing, pre- and post-election audits, and physical security of tabulation equipment. Before a tabulation system can be used in Washington, we require testing at a federally approved independent testing lab. These expert testers include security reviews as a part of their overall testing efforts. Then, systems are tested here at the state level and reviewed by our own voting systems certification board, comprised of technology experts, accessibility experts, and certified county election officials. Counties must then perform acceptance testing and logic and accuracy testing prior to every election. In addition, we conduct post-election audits, where we draw precincts and races at random and compare the vote totals from the tabulator to a hand count of ballots before the election is certified.
