PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — In a matter of weeks, millions of registered voters in Oregon and Washington will start receiving their ballots for the 2020 general election in the mail.

Across the country a record number of Americans are expected to cast ballots without going to a polling place.

But, accusations of impropriety and unfairness are dominating the discussion when it comes to voting by mail.

In episode two of the KOIN Podcast Network’s coverage of the final weeks of the 2020 campaign we talk to Silvia Albert from a voter-advocacy group called Common Cause and KOIN 6 News Anchor Dan Tilkin.

They talk about how vote by mail works, what it does for voter engagement, why it’s not perfect and if the accusations of fraud popularized by President Trump hold water.
