One of the concerns of the coronavirus is how we’ll handle voting in the 2020 election. Democrats have called for a blanket vote-by-mail system, while the Republicans have said that system would favor Democrats. But what does the data tell us about vote-by-mail?
A recent paper from soon to be Asst. Prof at UCLA, Dan Thompson, gives us the best data yet on how vote-by-mail effects turn out and partisans differences in elections. The results are surprising, and should change the debate over vote-by-mail.
