For the second in our series of #MethodsMondays blog posts on voting methodology, this one focuses on election data security. Tomorrow's election has the potential to be the most legally contested election in U.S. history. The primary legal grounds for these lawsuits will be election security specifics. As a result, I wanted to look into the issue of election security and share the sources for information I found:
Although this issue is important for our country, on a personal level, I honestly am not concerned about the security of my vote. I take solace in the miniscule number of cases of voter fraud in the past. And, since I trust the post office to deliver checks and personal information without stealing it, I also trust that if I chose to mail my ballot they would deliver it safely. I am far more concerned that we are all good citizens tomorrow and remember to be good neighbors by showing each other consideration and respect in the lines at the voting booths. In addition, I urge everyone going to vote tomorrow to show gratitude to the individuals staffing our voting facilities during Covid. Let's Vote!
