It mindlessly complains about loosening requirements around mail-in ballots like "California’s legislature passed a law that requires a mailed ballot merely to be postmarked by election day. These ballots then have over a month to get counted."
Mail-in ballots are also heavily used by the military. Restrictions limiting mail-in ballots also hurt the number of their votes that get counted as well.
And the truth is that if the mail-in ballots were predominantly REPUBLICAN votes, Repubs wouldn't have a problem. But when it swings towards Dems using them more, suddenly they are something that should be restricted.
The lack of thought that goes into these arguments on the right clearly shows their interest in targeted voter disenfranchisement.
