If the US went 100% vote by mail, it would be cheaper, more secure, and best of all we’d lose the breathless election night coverage where East Coast election reporting influences West Coast turnout

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE election night! But I’d give it up for the sake of democracy, y’all

@andrhia @darius that’d be rad but there are people who don’t have a permanent address to have a ballot mailed to, or who just moved. Maybe if people could pick up a mail-in ballot somewhere

@coaxmetal @andrhia Oregon is 100% mail in and we already have solutions in place for that (they could be better though)

@andrhia A serious problem with vote by mail is that people could be pressured by people near them to vote in a particular way.
