Joe thinks you can’t tell the difference between absentee voting and universal mail-in voting.

Absentee voting is safe and secure. If you requested an absentee ballot, you should use it.

Universal mail-in voting is vulnerable to abuse and mistakes.

Here are examples. THREAD:
More than 1 in 5 mail-in ballots were rejected in New York City during a recent election - as many as 84,000 ballots were invalidated - delaying the results of the election for more than a month.

As NPR reported in July, mail-in voting “is fraught with potential problems. Hundreds of thousands of ballots go uncounted each year because people make mistakes, such as forgetting to sign the form or sending it in too late”

And the claim that requiring universal mail-in voting - in all 50 states by November - is risk-free is simply false.

As this analysis in the Washington Post points out, universal mail-in voting would present significant risks and potential mistakes

I explored a lot of this in my podcast with Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow and manager of the Heritage Foundation’s Election Law Reform Initiative, who examines the risks and how we can better protect the integrity of our election system.

Bottom line: absentee ballots & universal mail-in voting are different.

Absentee ballots are requested by voters & voters return them. The voter must be eligible and verified.
In many states, universal mail-in ballots are sent to ALL people on voter rolls. If rolls are inaccurate, and they almost always are, ballots are sent to people and places they shouldn’t be. Anyone can end up returning the ballot, and it’s impossible to guarantee integrity.
