Republicans plan efforts to tout early voting tactics they once vilified2
Republican efforts to tout early voting tactics that they once vilified are becoming increasingly common. The Republican National Committee has launched a massive effort in the run-up to the 2020 election to encourage Republican voters to take advantage of early voting instead of waiting until Election Day. This includes encouraging people to use mail-in ballots, which they once criticized as open to fraud. Republican lawmakers across the country are advocating mail-in voting options for their constituents, particularly those in states where there is some form of early voting period. They are also touting the benefits of early voting to their constituents, emphasizing the convenience and flexibility it provides and the importance of getting votes in early so that election results are more quickly settled.
