If these people could not get out to go and mail their ballot, they could also not go out and get a stamp. In this case, again, however it would appear that Arizona provides postage paid en...

re: Supreme Court to debate voting rights case that advocates worry will limit access to polls - AggieHank86
Sorry, Eduardo, but "chain of custody" is rather important with ballots. The USPS does not really have any incentive to jack with mailed ballots, but "voting advocacy groups" (Left OR Right) usually have EVERY incentive to do so. I gotta say "comply with the law."...
