Mail Ballots: Will They Even Get There?

The debate rages over the vulnerability of vote-by-mail to fraud.

But not in my mind, and here’s why:  though plausible, for the moment let’s set aside this notion of fraud.

Three weeks ago, my trusty assistant mailed a check to a bank in Fort Worth for a mortgage payment.   The check never showed.  She ended up hand delivering a new check to the bank some 30 miles away, to satisfy timely payment.

This is one of dozens of such USPS fails over the course of HCC’s history.

Then, will those mail-ins be counted?  For a contentious election year like this one, don’t be so sure.  Nobody knows what the rules are.

For my ballot it’s mask up, head to early voting.

At least I’ll feel like my vote had a chance of counting.
