What is the controversy surrounding mail-in ballots? by Kenyans247(1): Thu 05, November, 2020 02:34pm
For months, Trump has claimed that making mail-in voting more accessible to citizens (which several states have done in light of the pandemic) will result in a sharp jump in voter fraud. However, there is little evidence of mail-in ballots leading to significant voter fraud.

According to a 2017 study by the Brennan Center for Justice, the rate of voting fraud overall in the US is less than 0.0009 percent. A BBC report quotes the Federal Election Commission head, Ellen Weintraub, "There's simply no basis for the conspiracy theory that voting by mail causes fraud."

There was a major surge in mail-in ballots due to the COVID-19 pandemic and people wanting to avoid standing in queues for long hours on Election Day. The Democrats also encouraged their voter base to opt for this voting method. This, in turn, resulted in a historic high when it comes to voter turnout a U.S. Presidential election which stands at 67 percent.

In this piece, CNBC-TV18's Abhishek Jha explains the controversy surrounding postal ballots.
