I decided to try the email ballot this time in my county. My understanding is this type of voting was initially put in place for those who can’t get around easily due to a physical handicap.
I was assigned a unique number that was emailed to me separately. I could only print one marked ballot using this code, not thousands. I dropped it off at the county office and not USPS.
Honestly, I don’t trust my vote even when going down in person and waiting in line at the in-person polling location.
Elder for the win, even though he smokes lots of weed and waves guns around. /s
