What’s your state’s policy on absentee and mail-in voting?

A record number of people are voting by mail because they’re scared of contracting coronavirus at their local polling place. Some states are even changing their voting policies because of the pandemic.Postmaster General Louis DeJoy told lawmakers the U.S. Postal Service plans to “send a letter to every American” explaining “what our process is” for mail-in voting. DeJoy expects that letter to go out in September, but until then, the USPS launched a brand new website with information for voters and election officials on how to properly vote by mail this fall.
