Do NOT let the Democrats memory-hole who was on which side of this issue.
Republicans have been shouting from the rooftops that the very nature of large-scale vote-by-mail operations opens up all sorts of opportunities for interference that simply are not present in the vote-in-person method.
For one thing, it’s harder to pass yourself off as someone else if you are voting in-person.
For another, when you vote in person, there is a known chain of custody where the ballot is under the watchful eye of at least one (hopefully more than one) authorized official.
Tampering, interference, or diversion of ballots from their end destination becomes much more difficult in such circumstances.
Democrats, and their media enablers, framed that concern as an effort to suppress the vote. In fact, it was exactly the opposite. We are seeing our wisdom and their folly playing out in real time.

Here’s the release that was given to Virginian voters.
This morning, the Department of Elections was made aware that six outdoor mail collection boxes were broken into sometime between Saturday afternoon and this morning. At this time, the United States Postal Service is investigating. Neither the Department nor USPS has any information about whether any election mail was contained in the boxes.
Anyone who dropped mail in the boxes at the post offices between 3 p.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. this morning should contact a USPS hotline at 877-876-2455 to report it. Voters can track their ballot online to see if it has been received by going to “check my registration” at elections.virginia.gov/voterinformation. If a voter needs a new ballot issued, they should contact their local general registrar’s office at elections.virginia.gov/localGR. The following post offices were affected [all are in the Richmond area]:
4990 Sadler Place
2000 Starling Drive
2100 E. Parham Road
7510 Lady Blair Lane
1201 Sycamore Square Drive
805 Glenburnie Road
Wouldn’t it have been simpler to vote in person?
If we can arrange drive-by COVID testing, surely we can arrange for voting to be done by some similar method.
