D. Specious Numbers
1. Higher voter participation cannot be consistently attributed to mail-in voting. Voter participation increases according to what is at stake in an election more than to the effect of any one given method of voting.
2. Cost savings are exaggerated. For information on the voter turn-out question, see “Your Ballot’s in the Mail: Vote by Mail and Absentee Voting,” Policy Brief Number 13, Project Vote, Washington, DC, 2009, http://www.projectvote.org/images/publications/Policy%20Briefs/PB13-Vote...
