More Americans may be voting by mail in this fall’s 2020 presidential election rather in person due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
President Donald Trump has suggested that voting by mail has potential for fraud. That’s even though reports of fraud associated with mail-in voting are almost non-existent.
In the meantime, the U.S. Postal Service said last week there is no guarantee ballots could be returned in time for the November 3rd election after overtime for postal workers were eliminated and sorting machines removed. Those changes were rescinded on Tuesday until after the election.
Pennsylvania’s Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Bookvar is on Smart Talk to discuss mail-in voting and what’s being done to ensure those ballots are counted.
