Barr: Secrecy May Be Broken in Mail Voting US NEWS

The Attorney General believes that there is a higher risk of intimidation and coercion when voting by mail

US Attorney General William Barr criticized the mail-order vote, saying the secrecy of such a vote could be violated.

Barr issued this warning during a visit to Arizona, where about 80 percent of voters receive ballots by mail.

The Attorney General also suggested that there is a higher risk of intimidation and coercion when voting by mail than when voting in person.

“The government and people involved in the process can find out how you voted. And that opens up an opportunity for intimidation, ”Barr said.
