  •  there are concerns about Vote By Mail (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    If you've followed any of the stories of absentee vote fraud in Florida, that is one line of concern.

    I know some voting security experts who very much look askance at the problems of securing Vote By Mail. It's a somewhat subtle policy issue: it isn't that VBM is utterly awful and some alternative is bulletproof.

    Also, there is something to be said for having an election day on which people (if they are able) go out and vote. Voting is a quintessential public act; maybe it matters whether we can see each other doing it.

    This morning I don't know my bottom line on that issue, and I can't do it justice. I do see good arguments on both sides.

    Election protection: there's an app for that!
