There is a LOT of noise surrounding vote by mail(vbm)/remote voting. It’s important to note that racial disparities exist in the rejection rate of vbm ballots cast by people of color. Also, the current shenanigans surrounding the USPS raise the level of distrust. All of this argues for why areas that are trying to expand vbm, must have other ways to cast ballots, including utilizing dropboxes, expanding early voting, and in-person methods. We need to increase opportunities to cast ballots, not limit them.
