Verified Voting Special Report: Managing the Surge of Mail-in Ballots in 2020 election

Just got this email from Verified Voting. If you don't know about them, you need to. Highly recommend signing up for their email list.

Check out our latest report:
https://www.verifiedvoting.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/VV-Scanning-Report-Fin-073120.pdf
“COVID-19 and the Surge of Mail Ballots: Managing an Unprecedented Volume in the November 2020 Election.”

"As we look ahead to the general election, jurisdictions across the country are predicted to see an unprecedented increase in requests for mail ballots. Our latest report helps to answer the question - will election officials be ready to handle this surge of mail ballots in November?

At Verified Voting, we believe in evidence-based recommendations and policy. Our team took the election technology data contained in our Verifier, and did an analysis of the equipment used to count mail ballots. Our findings confirm that there are creative solutions for processing a high volume of mail ballots in any state, but election officials need additional staff, resources and extended canvasing time to be ready. We’ve been pushing for Congress to appropriate additional federal funding, getting our recommendations in the hands of officials and policymakers, and spreading the message that voters need clear communication and transparency around when and how votes are counted.

But we need your help. The clock is ticking for election officials to get the resources they need, so please help us spread the word about our report by making a contribution to support our work and sharing our report on social media via Facebook and Twitter. Together, let’s ensure that every voter can have their vote counted as cast in November - not just in theory, but in reality.

With thanks,
The Verified Voting Team
