Thanks for the replies as to why so many vote by mail. I guess my experiences with the post office have not been such that I “trust the people at my post office to do it right.” And I always fill out the sample ballot provided prior to visiting the polling place so my time in the booth is pretty short.
I suppose if there were long lines I’d be more apt to vote by mail but so far that hasn’t been the case for me. My work hours were never the 9-5 kind and now I don’t have to go to work so I’m one of the lucky ones.
I hope we are all “lucky ones” after this election is over.
