Mail ballot access is an important way to make voting fair for all Americans. Robust mail ballot systems increase turnout across demographics, regardless of party affiliation, while maintaining security.
In this highly partisan environment, it is important to remember that an election is not just about who wins or loses — it’s about who votes. Voting at home offers America a unique opportunity to deliver on its ideals of fairness by bringing the ballot box to the voter.
Voting at home is about putting voters first and offering more options for them to take part. Factors like where you live and when you work should never dictate whether you can exercise your right to vote.
No voting method is perfect, but facts and research over decades of elections across the country show that voting at home is secure. Many security measures like barcoded ballots and signature verification help voters feel confident that the process of voting at home is safe and secure.
Voting is not and cannot be one-size-fits-all. While voting at home increases participation among historically underrepresented groups, we continue to refine our recommendations to better serve voters of color, voters with disabilities, rural voters, voters who are unhoused or without mailing addresses, and all communities.
While most voters agree that elections are fair, it is important to build more confidence in the election process. Transparency is a key tool that invites voters into the process long after they’ve cast their ballot and creates confidence in election outcomes.
Do you want to do more? Sign our petition to let legislators know that you want more vote at home options across the country.
Tell special interests and partisan politicians to stop attacking your right to vote at home
According to @CID_USC more California voters chose to #VoteAtHome than in past elections which ... increased voter turnout. The numbers don't lie! When lawmakers give voters more options to #VoteAtHome, participation in democracy increases.
