Doubts about America’s foray into mass mail voting have been pooh-poohed for months. Western states have pulled off all-absentee balloting for years, the news write-ups say in a throwaway line. What do they have that the rest of us lack? Well, for one thing, check out their solid deadlines. zQ9世界播

几个月来,人们对美国进军群发邮件投票的疑虑不屑一顾。新闻报道称,西部各州多年来一直在进行全缺席投票。他们有什么是我们其他人所缺少的?嗯,首先,看看他们坚定的最后期限。zQ9世界播


In Colorado, registered voters are to be mailed a ballot by Oct. 16. Election officials can begin counting incoming ballots on Oct. 19. If people register to vote within eight days of the election, they won’t be sent a ballot by mail and must go get one themselves. That makes it much less likely that voters will go to court after Election Day, claiming that the mailman didn’t bring their ballots until Nov. 3 or after. zQ9世界播

在科罗拉多州,登记选民将在10月16日之前收到一张选票。选举官员可以从10月19日开始清点收到的选票。如果人们在选举后八天内登记投票,他们将不会收到邮寄的选票,必须自己去领取。这使得选民在选举日之后走上法庭的可能性大大降低,声称邮递员直到11月3日或之后才带来选票。zQ9世界播


Oregon is even more strict. If you’re not registered to vote today, it’s already too late. To participate in an election, Oregonians must be on the rolls 21 days in advance. Residents not registered by Oct. 13 will sit out November and cast their next presidential vote in 2024. Ballots start being mailed out on Oct. 14. There’s no provision for laggards, no allowance for requesting a late mail ballot or picking one up at the county office. zQ9世界播

俄勒冈州甚至更加严格。如果你今天没有登记投票,那就太晚了。要参加选举,俄勒冈州人必须提前21天进入名单。在10月13日之前没有登记的居民将坐在11月,在2024年举行下一次总统选举。选票从10月14日开始邮寄。没有规定落后的人,也没有要求延迟邮寄选票或到县办公室领取选票的津贴。zQ9世界播


If Oregon were a GOP state, its rules might be characterized as “voter suppression,” a cynical attempt to blockade the ballot box. But a deadline is a neutral rule, and running a tight ship is especially vital when many or all ballots are going by the U.S. Postal Service. zQ9世界播

如果俄勒冈州是一个共和党州,它的规则可能会被描述为“选民压制”,一种愤世嫉俗的封锁投票箱的企图。但最后期限是一条中立的规则,当许多或所有选票都通过美国邮政服务(U.S.Postal Service)进行时,管理严密的船队尤其至关重要。zQ9世界播


This year’s big potential swing states are taking a loosey-goosey approach. Pennsylvania and Wisconsin don’t start processing piled-up mail votes until Election Day. Minnesotans can apply for an absentee ballot on Nov. 2. Politicians want to experiment with mass mail voting, but without making the concessions to reality that are evident in the West. There’s still time for Pennsylvania to learn from better examples. zQ9世界播

今年潜在的大摇摆州正在采取一种松懈的方式。宾夕法尼亚州和威斯康星州直到选举日才开始处理堆积如山的邮件选票。明尼苏达州人可以在11月2日申请缺席投票。政客们希望试验集体邮件投票,但不会向现实做出西方明显的让步。宾夕法尼亚州还有时间向更好的例子学习。zQ9世界播
