Opinion: Trump is wrong about the dangers of absentee ballots

Richard L. Hasen, professor of law and political science at the University of California at Irvine School of Law, and author of “Election Meltdown: Dirty Tricks, Distrust, and the Threat to American Democracy,” writes, “Given that expanded mail-in voting is going to be an inevitable piece of the November election because of the coronavirus pandemic, it is important that Americans understand what risks come from voting by mail and what can be done about those risks before November, so that voters can have confidence that the election can be fairly conducted, in part, through mail-in balloting.”
