President Trump voting by mail in 2020

After months of unfounded attacks on mail-in voting, President Donald Trump on Friday said he planned to vote via an absentee ballot in the 2020 election. 

“Absentee ballots are great … I’m going to be voting absentee,” Trump told reporters as he once again condemned mail-in voting, which is practically identical to absentee voting in terms of process and security measures. 

Trump has repeatedly drawn a false distinction between absentee and mail-in voting, according to voting experts.

“No-excuse mail voting or absentee voting whatever you call it — is essentially the same thing,” David Becker, the founder of the nonpartisan Center for Election Innovation and Research, told CNN in mid-July.
