Michelle Obama Jumps Aboard the ‘Vote By Mail’ Bandwagon

Will we really be mailing in our ballots come November?

With the threat of coronavirus still existing out in the great unknown spaces of our scientific community, it has been hard for Americans to put a timeline on much of anything.

Baseball still has no opening day scheduled, and that’s despite rumored plans to possibly begin the season with teams quarantined in Arizona and playing in front of empty seats.  Some concerts and music tours have been rescheduled, but plenty are still simply up in the air.

And let’s not forget about the Fourth of July, Halloween, or even Election Day – with that last one posing a very unique challenge in and of itself.  As such, a great many politicians have gotten behind the idea of preparing the nation to possibly vote by mail.

Former first lady Michelle Obama and her celebrity-backed voting “rights” group are announcing on Monday support for a Democrat-sponsored bill to increase vote-by-mail options in U.S. elections.

“Launched in 2018 by co-chairs Michelle Obama, Tom Hanks, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Janelle Monae, Chris Paul, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, When We All Vote is changing the culture around voting using a data-driven and multifaceted approach to increase participation in elections,” the organization’s website states.

“There is nothing partisan about striving to live up to the promise of our country; making the democracy we all cherish more accessible; and protecting our neighbors, friends and loved ones as they participate in this cornerstone of American life,” Obama said in a statement to Axios.

Of course, the plan has its share of detractors as well, many of whom are concerned about the possibility of voter fraud.
