Everett Herald editorial critical of vote by mail

An editorial critical of vote by mail, from Sunday's Everett (WA) Herald. Not fully accurate--as with any voting method, the question to ask is not whether the method is prone to fraud, but whether it is more prone than other methods.

Election officials in Oregon (and I tend to agree with them) admit that vote by mail has flaws and might be taken advantage of (although this is a Class C felony). However, the question is whether traditional voting methods, where all you do is show up at a precinct, sign a paper (with a never verified signature) and vote is more or less prone.
