Over the past few weeks especially, the issues surrounding mail-in voting have been on the minds of many Americans ahead of the general election coming up on November third.
President Trump, while staunchly against mail-in voting, made clear in his remarks this past Saturday that he has been pushing for increased funding of the Postal Service. President Trump noted, “The Democrats aren’t approving the proper funding for Postal, and they’re not approving the proper funding for this ridiculous thing that they want to do, which is all mail-in voting. “Universal,” you could call it, mail-in voting.”
Moments later, the President went on to state his approval of absentee voting, while once again reminding the nation about his feelings on mail-in voting, “Absentee voting is great… I’m an absentee voter because I requested, I got, and then I sent in my vote. So that works out very well… But now they want to send in millions and millions of ballots. And you see what’s happening. They’re being lost, they’re being discarded. They’re finding them in piles. It’s going to be a catastrophe. So — and this is beyond the Post Office.”
As the election nears, mail-in voting will certainly be an on-going dispute in the United States.
