Voting by mail has become a hot button issue this election cycle and millions of Americans, including in Arizona, are planning to vote by mail this November — some for the first time ever, as the coronavirus pandemic remains widespread.
The sudden interest in voting by mail due to the pandemic has led to a variety of conspiracy theories and attacks, the most prominent of which have come from President Donald Trump.
Other vocal critics of vote by mail, such as Arizona U.S. Rep Paul Gosar, have in fact voted by mail themselves.
Arizona has been doing vote by mail successfully for nearly 30 years, and nearly 80% of the votes cast in the 2018 general election were cast by mail-in ballots.
