Democrats Encourage Voters To Vote In Person Rather Than By Mail

Now that Election Day is only four days away, it might be too late to send in a ballot by mail and have your vote count for the election.

Democrats are pushing this information out heavily, as many more Democrats than Republicans planned to vote by mail instead of in-person this year. If the voters who had planned on voting by mail continue to plan on doing, it puts the party at major risk of losing key battleground states to the Republicans.

They are also attempting to get this message out in case the Supreme Court makes any further changes in how certain states accept votes. On Monday night, SCOTUS declined to extend mail ballot deadlines in Wisconsin, after a lower court had allowed the state to count ballots postmarked by Election Day but received after that date. Many battle ground states are split evenly between Democrat Joe Biden and President Donald Trump.

“Bank it, bank it, bank it. Bank it!” said Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman (D). “If you have a ballot, deliver it to a secure ballot box. Don’t mail it in. I am not advocating at this point to trust mail.”

Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, agreed that citizens should not depend on the United States Postal Service to get their ballots in on time.

“We are too close to Election Day, and the right to vote is too important, to rely on the Postal Service to deliver absentee ballots on time,” Benson said. “Citizens who already have an absentee ballot should sign the back of the envelope and hand-deliver it to their city or township clerk’s office or ballot drop box as soon as possible.”
