Why Not Mail-in Ballots?
You may be asking yourself at this point, “so why not use mail-in ballots?” Mail-in ballots may seem like a good alternative to traditional in-person voting, but they are expensive and insecure. Mail-in ballots can cost over $20 per vote and there is nothing preventing someone from your building, or your mail carrier, from altering or destroying your ballot! Mail-in ballots are problematic for both governments and corporations.
In addition to all of these problems, engaging with your government or corporation a yearly basis via an election does not provide adequate communication and connection. We need a better system that provides a platform for trusted ongoing engagement with our governments and corporations.
