    Not requiring individuals who apply for absentee ballots to prove their identity and being a citizen of the united states. Meaning the ballots would be sent to anyone who simply requests one, even if they are an illegal alien.

    You just haven't been listening or paying any attention to the many pronouncements and objectives of your Democrat leaders. Before you defend them you should have some clue what they are doing and saying.

    YOU brought it up I don't have to go back to it. The Republican in NC......throw the book at him if the court finds him guilty as I said then. Now address what I said.

    I already showed you were ONE VOTE would have determined which party controlled the Virginia statehouse. Stop with the canard "Oh it takes LOTS of votes to affect an elections" there are thousands of small local elections in this country and lots of them can be quite close. And as I noted in 2000, who would become President was decided on 236 votes in Florida.

    Nancy needs to resign and spend her remaining senile days eating the gourmet ice cream from her $25,000 freezer.

    That decision will be made by Congress as we get closer to the event.... certainly no reason to postpone a November election in late April...

    The problem with Vote by mail is that it makes it to easy for registered voters to vote. If we move to a vote by mail system that allows everyone to vote, it will cause Republicans to loose elections. Due to this reason, and ONLY this reason, they do not want vote by mail.

    Republicans only win elections when turnout is low. THey rely on low turnout to impose the tryanny of the few upon the many.

    What would be accomplished by this postponement?

    November 3, 2020—Election Day
    During the general election your vote helps determine your State's electors. When you vote for a Presidential candidate, you aren't actually voting for President. You are telling your State which candidate you want your State to vote for at the meeting of the electors. The States use these general election results (also known as the popular vote) to appoint their electors. The winning candidate's State political party selects the individuals who will be the electors.

    Mid-November through December 14, 2020
    After the presidential election, the Governor of your State prepares seven Certificates of Ascertainment. “As soon as practicable,” after the election results in your State are certified, the Governor sends one of those original Certificates of Ascertainment to the Archivist.

    December 8, 2020
    States must make final decisions in any controversies over the appointment of their electors at least six days before the meeting of the electors. This is so their electoral votes will be presumed valid when presented to Congress. Decisions by States’ courts are conclusive, if decided under laws enacted before Election Day.

    December 14, 2020 - meeting of the electors
    The electors meet in their respective States and vote for President and Vice President on separate ballots. The electors record their votes on six Certificates of Vote, which are paired with the six remaining Certificates of Ascertainment. The electors sign, seal, and certify six sets of electoral votes. A set of electoral votes consists of one Certificate of Ascertainment and one Certificate of Vote.

    December 23, 2020 - statutory deadline to receive Certificates
    Electoral votes (the Certificates of Vote) must be received by the President of the Senate and the Archivist no later than nine days after the meeting of the electors. If votes are lost or delayed, the Archivist may take extraordinary measures to retrieve duplicate originals.

    So by December 8th all election challenges must be completed and the states must have time to do that. It got down to the last day Florida 2000. So how many days could you practically postpone it and what would you gain?

    Voting is a right held exclusively by the citizens of the united states, not those who are in the country illegally. Until a greater effort is made to show that illegal aliens and dead individuals are not casting votes, it is not an option.
