This year is a new year for people to vote in a presidential election. But due to this pandemic that is affecting everyone from voting in person, it might be a bit more different and overwhelming for everyone. The new way of voting this year is mostly going to be done via mail. For example, In different states, there are different ways to vote. ¨In nine states, ballots were being automatically mailed to all registered voters. In nine other states, voters are automatically receiving applications to request mail-in ballots. And in 36 states, voters can use the coronavirus as a reason to get an absentee ballot.¨ This shows that you could still vote but it depends on your state and how they are going to decide how to vote. Also, president trump is trying to scare people so there can be fewer people voting but this eventually backfires. And because of this pandemic, there are going to be about 70 million people voting through the mail.
In my opinion the new way to vote is going to be great because of this COVID-19 virus. I believe this because there are going to be significantly less people standing close to each other if they go to voting booths. Also, it may be hectic for the people who are going to be in charge of checking the votes because they are going to be sent in the mail. All in all I believe its going to be very interesting election wise this year.
