Re: Mail-In Voting, Pandemic, Postponement
As a Security expert I am well versed in Risk Analysis and the fact of the matter is that it is still more dangerous to drive a vehicle in the US than the risk of dying from COVID-19.  Prior posters suggest that mail-in ballots need to be required to keep people safe, that poster needs to realize that at this point there is little to nothing the government can do to keep everyone safe. COVID is out there and it now has a documented risk factor, it is everyone's personal responsibility to manage this risk for themselves.  Back to my initial statement we never forced mail-in ballots in the past because it was to dangerous to drive to the polls, so why would we now all of the sudden be worried about people going to the polls.  I guess in summary with all of the threats out there COVID is not the biggest threat in the world at this time.

Fair elections
Require ID cards to secure a punch ballot and ink stain finger of voter. Anything else invites voter fraud - just ask the Democrats in Chicago how easy it has been to cast fraudulent ballots for decades. The more digital the greater the fraud - it's that simple.

Mail-In Voting, Pandemic, Postponement
While presently mail-in voting is only a reality for a subset of states doesn't it make sense that instead of endangering the lives of citizens of this country that we postpone the election until after this global crisis is resolved?

That or more heavily invest in alternative methods of voting that don't involve a physical presence.
