Amber McReynolds, Executive Director of the National Vote at Home Institute, debunks myths and falsehoods regarding the top 10 objections to 'vote at home' or 'vote by mail' election systems.

McReynolds shares how the nonpartisan organization has witnessed good progress at this year's state legislative sessions, but have also seen a number of myths surrounding these systems, which all or most voters in a state or county are sent ballots in the mail and not required to go to traditional polling places.

McReynolds argues that polling-place-centric elections poorly serve millions and polling-place models also suffer from execution problems that can disenfranchise large numbers of eligible voters.
