The COVID pandemic has disrupted many aspects of our lives and there was controversy during the November 2020 elections over the increased use of mail-in voting. Some voters were reluctant to vote in person and social distancing precautions may increase the wait time for voters that did. Voting by mail was proposed as a possible solution. Many states allow for all voters to vote by mail or at least allow some of their citizens to vote by mail if they are elderly, disabled, or will be out of the area during the voting period.
