In one case, someone even microwaved their ballot in an attempt to get rid of any germs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ >> Click the link in bio for the full story

Since 2000, more than 250 million votes have been cast via mailed-out ballots in all 50 states, according to the National Vote at Home Institute. 5 Reasons to Have Confidence in Mail-in Voting 1. Voting by mail isn't new. 2. It's difficult to request a mail-in ballot or cast a vote by mail using someone else's name. 3. Nationwide security procedures protect the delivery of mail-in ballots. 4. Vote-by-mail programs do not favor one political party over another. 5. Voter impersonation and ballot falsification are exceedingly rare.
