(LibertySociety.com) – The controversy over mail-in voting rages on with just over 20 days left until the November 3 election. Democrats claim it’s the safest way to vote during the pandemic, while Republicans believe it could lead to widespread fraud. Now, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) Chairman, James E. Trainor III, has something to say about it, too.
During a recent interview with Washington Examiner reporter Paul Bedard, Trainor said the “safest best way for anyone” to vote is in-person.

Mail-in votes are “the easiest ballots to get discarded” because of all the requirements that must be met. For instance, officials can toss ballots for signature discrepancies or failure to follow the instructions on the envelope.
If people want to make sure their vote counts, going to their local precinct is much safer than taking a chance by mail. And, in an election this important, every vote counts.
