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.

My wife and I have voted absentee for years. Never had a problem, but this year we are going to deposit the ballots in a mailbox rather than putting them in our mailbox for pickup by our mail carrier. Why? Because we get Trump and GOP stuff in the mail and I’m not taking a chance an activist mailman might just lose our ballot on the way back to the post office. If it’s dropped in a mailbox there is no way to tell what the ballot inside says. Yes I’m paranoid.
