Letter suggests voting by mail rather than at the polls

To the Editor:
Voting by mail should replace voting at the polls in it’s entirety. The two
institutions that can definitely be trusted is the County Board of Elections
and the United States Postal Service. The money saved by eliminating the
need for poll workers could be used to offer free postage on the envelopes
used to vote by mail. The person voting would also have more time to
consider what they are voting for and would not be confined to the hours
of the polling place. It would also prevent unwanted entry to schools and
churches from anyone trying to harm someone.
In addition, the voter would not be harassed by someone trying to place unsolicited campaign literature into their hand. The additional revenue would boost the Postal Service and perhaps keep it afloat until we as a country are able to vote online. Voting by mail would solve the registered voter problem and guarantee safe
passage of the ballots to the County Board of Elections. It might even
prevent further spread of the COVID-19 Virus.
