President Trump has waged an all-out war on the concept of vote-by-mail—an attack that is particularly ironic since he and several high-profile members of his administration have taken advantage of mail-in ballots themselves.
The chaos surrounding voting in a pandemic is a manifestation of a landmark Supreme Court case that gutted a key provision of the Voting Rights Act.
There is zero evidence that vote-by-mail leads to widespread fraud. Even a commission convened by Trump himself found no real evidence of fraud before it was disbanded in 2018.
