New voting laws revive fights over ‘ballot harvesting’

Richard L. Hasen, a law professor and elections expert at the University of California, Irvine, School of Law, said  …. “On the one hand, there’s going to be much more need for the use of absentee ballots because of the potential safety concerns of voting in person,” Hasen said of the 2020 election. “On the other hand, there are going to be more people who are going to be receiving absentee ballots and more potential for interfering with them.” Hasen said that’s particularly true for states like Nevada that plan to send ballots to voters in the mail regardless of whether they requested one.
