    Democrats: You're not allowed to leave your house.

    Also Democrats: You need to pass this bill if you still want to vote, because we're not letting you leave your house.

    This is extortion!

    What’s wrong with voting by mail? I’ve done it a few times now.

    Pelosi will pursue any tiny opening or loop hole that she feels will allow more non-citizens to vote for Democrats. She is as subtle as a train wreck.

    Vote by mail is just set up for total corruption. Certanly it's an alternative, when necessary, but should not be the norm.

    I am not at all surprise to see Nancy and the Dems continue to use this medical emergency to extort the American people.

    The left got completely upset about the vote harvesting in SC because its not part of their laws to be allowed. The left doesn't even want to investigate claims of ballot harvesting corruption in CA because its legal there.

    why is it ok as an alternative for the military for instance, but not for someone else. I had someone at my polling station that had voted by mail and was denied to vote again in person, that worked on that instance.

    Because the majority of the time, military is stationed away from their polling stations and cant vote by mail AND in person.

    ANY ease with which we are allowed to vote, will as Trump says, see no REPUBLICAN ever be voted again, into office.

    The reality is, there are far more Democrats, or those believing in those tenets, than Republicans. This is patently obvious, as the comfortable, the cacooned, the pampered, are Republicans, by and large. Most of us cannot come up with 400 dollars in an emergency, which this SURELY is. The lessons this period teaches us, in addition to the aforementioned majority, WILL see us sweep Republicans from the scene, and usher in a new reality.

    Leaving only the packed court that surely will be impacted as well, by that new reality.

    Republicans are fighting for survival. Their comeuppance is upon them.

    You aren't supposed to be able to, but that wouldn't stop some people from trying to. Not to mention the high ability of "losing" some ballots or "finding" a **** ton of new votes for a particular candidate. Vote by mail is a ploy to get around voter ID.

    If Nancy gets the virus.....she is trying to make sure her vote will be counted from the cemetery along with all the other Dem voters there.

    I have a cousin who lives in Washington, every election she calls me up and asks how she should vote. So I tell her. I'm not sure, but that may be akin for me voting in Washington state. Call it a proxy vote.

    There have been times she told me awhile back where ballots were stolen out of their mail boxes. They could all be filled out by one person who cast who knows how many ballots. Now there are problems with this, but under the circumstances, it may be the only reasonable solution.

    Isn't that exactly what is being proposed here, the option to implement it if the pandemic makes it necessary?It should have been a separate bill to the emergency support measures they've already brought in and they're all equally guilty of playing politics with the situation just as they always do.

    The US electoral system seems to be full of corruption in general so even with vote-by-mail being imperfect, it's the least of your problems over all. You still have the core problem of political interference (from all sides) in the process and could really do to shift the entire system to a truly independent election commission.

    No, what's being proposed doesn't limit it to the Chinese Virus.

    Do you trust the Democrats to be honorable and to do the right thing?

    Never trust evil to not be evil.

    Hell no, maybe in the 50-60's but todays Dems are corrupt as it gets! Not down playing the Right either but to their defense, when in a corrupt environment you must play by the same ruleset or be wiped out..

    You say that garbage like a mantra. We do too, but then we back it alllllllll up with facts, and quotes. REAL quotes, not fake ones. And taken out of text and parsed.

    I don't disagree, the democrats have clearly backed up that claim over the decades and more recently the last three years of lying bullshit, fabrication and misinformation to fulfill a threat of impeachment made on day 1 of a new President being sworn in..

    Calm down lil buddy, be proud own that sh%t :)

    Because the military requires, (or at least did) that you certify your ballot with the unit voting assistance officer who certifies that your vote was in fact your vote.
