Also
Time after time your posts have been rebuke.
I like the energy, but you have to think and try harder.

By the way Libtard.... I was giving my opinion...I guess if you don't like it like the typical loser you really are, you try to push others down... Go to your protest...is this really Tammy Kim..... Don't like others opinions...and this has nothing to do with trump...just giving my opinion...

Not sure how calling others libtards or losers helps your case. Can you explain to me how it does?

Vote by mail previously had to be specifically requested.  This reduced the chance of shenanigans.  Many of the people who speak against it are still in favor of being able to vote by mail by request.

Pros:
1. The ability to vote from the comfort of your home
2. The ability to avoid polling places.  (Irvine was never a problem, though)
3. The ability to avoid people with viruses.

Cons:
1. Mail in voting encourages early voting.  Early voting allows for politicians to win the election without having debates.  Now, most people already are decided who they are going to vote for.
2. Pre-filled ballot mailing allows for someone to intercept and vote using the prefilled ballot.
3. It makes it easier to vote on behalf of those that you know are not going to vote.
4. Mail carriers can throw away votes from houses with political signs they disagree with.  (be sure to drop off at the post office instead)
5. Mail in voting is more prone to error.
6. The number of mail in votes was lower in the past.  If the votes are to be counted on election day and we were overwhemled last election, then consider how long it will take to count this election. 

Concerns:
Last election we saw a much larger turnout of mail in votes.  We also saw our own election results get flipped when the mail in votes were counted.  That may have a rational reason, such as certain people are more likely to vote by mail.  It is concerning that the vote results greatly flipped and probably caused some people to change their mind on their openness to it. 



Well thought out post, but mail in voting is taken extremely seriously by the postal workers union and local election committees

The mail in ballots will be counted in spite of the President's failed attempt to suppress them.

Also, there are a multitude of agencies out there protecting the process due to the attacks in 2016. The non-partisan organizations are still being manned by civil servants who uphold their duty, unlike corrupted sycophants. AG Barr is a prime example of someone failing to serve the people of this country.

Civil servants work for the people, not the other way around.

@Spootiehoo....

I think you misspelled a few things in your phrase:

"Concerns:
Last election we saw a much larger turnout of mail in votes.  We also saw our own election results get flipped when the mail in votes were counted.
"

May I suggest:

"Concerns:
Last election we saw a much larger turnout of mail in votes.  We also saw our own election results get flipped when the ballots harvested by Democrat operatives were counted."


I think this is closer to the circumstances that occurred during the 2018 mid-terms.


Or maybe the People have spoken and chose officials based on who they thought best represented them and their values
