Luxury Apartments – The Hazards of Mail-In Voting in Massachusetts [PHIL-OSOPHY]
The tried-and-true absentee ballot request system has worked perfectly well for many decades. I’m an advocate for our absentee system, where you request a ballot be sent to you. I do have a problem, however, with millions of ballots being mailed out to people who’ve moved away or who’ve passed on. There’s a big difference between a massive bulk mailing and requesting a ballot be sent to you.
Regardless of why vote by mail didn’t make it for the governor to sign, the Senate will probably return to this in the future as a standalone piece of legislation. But in the meantime, if you agree with my viewpoints, then take a moment to call on Governor Charlie Baker, Senator Mark Montigny and the area legislators not to make voting by mail permanent.
