America has one of the worst voter turnout rates of all developed countries. But by passing Vote by Mail in every state, we can make it easier for everyone to vote, and still prioritize security and accuracy.
Here's how Vote by Mail works in Colorado, known as the gold standard for this policy:
-All registered voters are automatically mailed a ballot before every election.
-All signatures on mail ballots are compared to on-file signatures. Any discrepancies are examined by a bipartisan team of judges, and then further investigated if needed.
-Voters can submit ballots at secure 24/7 drop boxes or voting centers.
-It’s required that all votes are cast on paper ballots, to ensure there’s a paper trail that can be verified.
-Voters can still go vote in person, both during an extended early voting period and on Election Day.
-Post-election audits are mandatory after every election to ensure accuracy
