Experts Warn Mail-In Voting Misinformation Could Threaten Elections
August 4, 2020
Election security experts warned Tuesday that a major threat to elections this year is disinformation and misinformation around perceived threats from mail-in voting.
The warnings came on the heels of sustained criticism of mail-in voting by President Trump, who last week suggested postponing the November general election due to concerns over the expected influx of mail-in voting, though Trump does not have the power to do so. He has also raised mostly unsubstantiated concerns that mail-in voting could cause an increase in voter fraud.
