Political Rewind: The Stance On Voting By Mail

May 22, 2020

Friday on Political Rewind, President Donald Trump is threatening to deny federal funds to the state of Michigan because of the promotion of absentee ballots in 2020’s elections.

The president, as well as many Republicans in the state of Georgia, say voting by mail is too vulnerable to fraud.


In Georgia, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger sent out 6.9 million absentee ballot request forms to registered voters and has urged Georgians to vote by mail.
