There is a big difference between the mass mailing of an actual ballot to every registered voter, alive or dead, still living there or moved, in a state and sending a request for such a ballot or having people request an absentee ballot. President Trump often says something controversial or vague just to get the opposition talking about the topic. I see he has started to use the word universal when talking about universal vote by mail. I hope he continues to clarify the difference between the two.
The state of Oregon says it has been using mail in voting for a long time with no problem. Of course the Democrats think there is no problem because in Oregon the Democrats win every statewide election.
For the life of me, I can’t understand why anyone who is capable of voting in person would ever want to vote by mail. I would have no confidence that the vote will ever be delivered, received, and counted.

Maybe each ballot should include a mini purple inkpad, to put the voters thumbprint on the return envelope? And the ballot include a return address sticker for that voter? Then, USPS could scan them (they scan all mail already) and link thumbprints to voters?
Then, do spot checks to verify authenticity and catch fraud.
Dont like that method? Then go vote in person, as originally intended.

The state of Utah has been doing the same and they're as Republican as you can get.
