Absentee voting, using the US Postal Service as your medium of transmission, requires that, first the prospective voter REQUESTS the ballot be mailed to his address, then the completed ballot is returned, postmarked BEFORE the date on which the polls are closed. No agent goes around to the addresses and solicits the return of the ballots to the agent, who then shall graciously transport them to the ballot clerk, so-called “ballot harvesting”, a blatantly transparent scheme to juggle the actual ballots received by the county clerk’s office, where the ballots are counted.

Chain of custody of the ballot is very important here, and like the chain of custody of material evidence has to be maintained for medical procedures or legal proceedings, any compromise completely invalidates the possibly corrupted material evidence, and is thus unacceptable and inadmissible.

I voted absentee one time (I was in another state doing some corporate training on Election Day). I thought the process was fairly secure. I had to apply for my absentee ballot and explain why I needed to vote absentee. They checked my registration and sent it to me, along with a deadline by which it had to be returned. The absentee ballots for voters registered at my polling place were delivered to that polling place in sealed envelopes the morning of the election, and were opened and counted along with the machine totals by the local election board when the polls closed.

Whether your ballot has been received back yet at the election office is a public record - so the ballot harvesters can go door knocking with a list.

With all the election fliers I get every day, it is pretty clear to my mailman which party I am registered with. Anyone with any doubts about their mailman should drop their ballot off at the post office rather than leave it in their mailbox. Probably should anyway.
