Letter to the Editor: Vote by Mail

Washington County News

Dear Editor, 

Voting by mail should replace voting at the polls in it's entirety.  The two institutions that can definitely be trusted is the County Board of Elections and the United States Postal Service.  The money saved by eliminating the need for poll workers could be used to offer free postage on the envelopes

used to vote by mail. 

The person voting would also have more time to consider what they are voting for and would not be confined to the hours of the polling place.  It would also prevent unwanted entry to schools and

churches from anyone trying to harm someone.   In addition the voter would not be harassed by someone trying to place unsolicited campaign literature into their hand.   

Letter to the editor

The additional revenue would boost the Postal Service and perhaps keep it afloat until we as a country are able to vote online. Voting by mail would solve the registered voter problem and guarantee safe

passage of the ballots to the County Board of Elections.  It might even prevent further spread of the Covid-19 Virus.
