How and Why to Vote by Mail

27 minutes

The 2020 General Election in the United States is destined to be a historic moment in American history. Yes, the election is likely to be the most hotly contested electoral competition since the Bush-Gore election in 2000. The election process will be the defining feature and possibly affect the outcome. Because of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, mail-in (or no-excuse absentee) voting will be the most popular method of voting in the 2020 election.  However, voting by mail is not new in the United States. In fact, it has existed since the American Civil War and it was used during both world wars and the 1918 Spanish flu. Yet many Americans are unfamiliar with the process and pitfalls of voting by mail. Join Robin, Hans, and Ben as they discuss the process of voting by mail, the rules in the different states, and the steps for voting by mail from abroad. Great information for voters in every state. This is a unique "how-to" episode that could ensure that you stay safe while voting and that your vote counts.
