Hal still doesn't get the difference.

Absentee: voter specifically requests a ballot be mailed to them, and they return it.

Mail in: voter does not request ballot, and county just mails everyone on their registered list a ballot, and hopes for the best.

NY STILL has some primary voting results undetermined due to not being able to validate almost 25% of ballots in some districts. 1000's of ballots had to be thrown out due to minor errors. They voted in June.

Most cities, counties and states are NO WHERE NEAR prepared for the onslaught of ALL mail-in, let alone absentee, voting.

Perfect.

CNN. yeah, sure. leader in "truth in reporting".

Why is NY having such problems just finishing their primary elections then (6 weeks later now), if there's no difference or issues with it?

There's no consistent definition of differences between absentee and mail-in voting by state.

On a national scale, that's going to be all fooked up in processing and validating. See NY primary vote for instance.

The problem is counting mail-in ballots. Hasn't New York had absentee and mail-in balloting all along...and these problems never cropped up before? What's changed?

Something funny is going on.

Isn't the act of registering to vote the same thing as requesting a ballot? It's not like they just mail them out to anyone. In my little neighborhood, we only have mail in/ absentee ballots. No poling stations. It seems to work fine.

Yes, but voter registration is not audited annually for accuracy.

People die. People move. People go to jail. Duplicate registrations. All sorts un-kept records on voter registration. I doubt they're audited every 2 or 4 year election, unless a manual count is required for very close races.

In small rural areas, the totals are probably not meaningful. But in larger metro areas, 1000's of ballots can be disqualified if irregularities found. NY is dealing with this now, 6 weeks later.

I agree we should start making absentee and/or mail-in voting more easy, but more importantly, more verifiable.

Most states are not ready yet to handle this on a national scale, and expect reliability, consistency, expediency and most of all, ACCURACY.

Dunno if it's been said here but Hawaii, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, and Utah conduct their elections almost entirely by mail.

Good listen on the subject here, unless you believe the NYT is incapable of being truthful.


TLDL; we could do mail in, or polling stations, but not both. Both is very difficult, see Georgia's primary this year. And, Trump is a fuckin liar about the amount of fraud. "Kids ransacking mailboxes" Jesus fucking christ.
