More and more elections are turning toward mail in options. Supporters contend that it is convenient, cheap, and popular.
The state of Oregon first adopted the system in 1998 and now has some of the highest voter turnout rates in the U.S. The state of Washington has now followed suit with 38 of 39 counties now exclusively mail-in.
With proven results over the years of increased voter turn-out, and other states seriously trending towards changing to this system could indeed prove also to be a boon for the Postal Service in increased mail volume and revenue.
What do you think? Good for democracy? Good for the Postal Service? Comment here.
