September 30, 2020 — “Election experts agree that mail voting is secure and that the only way to make sure your vote doesn’t count is if you don’t vote. It’s important for voters to make a plan to vote now – whether that is by mail or in person – and for election officials to have the resources they need to make sure every vote is counted as cast. The American people deserve accurate and complete election results.”
Verified Voting, a non-partisan election integrity organization, advocates for evidence-based elections where voters mark paper ballots primarily by hand, voters verify the ballots before casting, there is a strong chain of custody of the ballots, and robust post-election audits such as risk-limiting audits (RLAs) are conducted. Verified Voting’s COVID-19 recommendations on election security and verification can be viewed here.
