Pennsylvania approves vote-by-mail but still the use is uncertain in general elections
The government in Pennsylvania tried to vote by mail last year, and it was a successful attempt, but it is still unclear that it will be utilized for presidential elections or not.
The researcher, Matt Barreto of UCLA's Voting Rights Project, told us in an interview: "We looked for three decades for all the instances of voter fraud. These have been tabulated and cataloged. We found that it's just not happening in a vote by mail."
Considering the present situation in the country due to Coronavirus, the demand for such elections had increased. This election could be conducted being at home and hence will keep people safe from interactions with the virus.

No official declaration had been made regarding the mail-in option for general elections, but states are already using it for absentee voting.
According to Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, who manages elections, said that mail could be a very safe method for voting and reduces the chances of voter fraud.

Foundation holds 40 years of information in its database.
In such a long time and a vast number of the election, it had tallied 213 instances of voter fraud related to mail-in ballots.
