    With the pandemic running thru PA it was suggested that we vote in the upcoming primary election by mail. Similar to an absentee ballot but no explanation needed to obtain the mail in ballot. tom.

    If we go to mail-in ballots in the Presidential election I think there will be problems in the count.Either unregistered voters or illegal ballots and turmoil will ensure that the election will be contested.

    I will vote in person as a matter of principle.

    First it’s vote by mail. Then it will be vote by Internet. By mail I’m sure is already loaded with fraud.

    Do you vote by absentee ballot? I have in the past but stopped many years ago. The election officials (volunteers?) compare the signature on the mail-in ballot to the voter registration and they reject the ballot if the signatures don't match.

    Does your voter registration list your party affiliation? Yes. So if the volunteer election official doesn't doesn't like voters registered as 'green party' or 'elephant party" then maybe the signatures don't match, in the opinion of the election official.

    Too paranoid? Maybe not.

    Who would be handling the ballots? USPS? LMFAO!!! They took over a month to ship a parcel to me from Amazon which was 2-day. No tracking, nothing. The distribution hub where my package was held up at basically told me hurry up and wait. If this is how they are planning to handle vote-by-mail, then yeah I'm totally against that, not reliable at all and wide open to people "losing" ballots for the candidate they don't like.
