Systems that include voting by mail only have also been called "forced mail voting". It has been argued that these systems are proposed in order to reduce work for the elections officials, not to make elections more secure. This system is also known as VBM.



All elections are conducted by mail in Oregon and large parts of Washington State.

Arguments in favor of VBM

Arguments against VBM


In October 2006, Oregon Senator Ron Wyden, along with co-sponsors Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) and Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) introduced S.4018, The Vote By Mail Act of 2006. This federal legislation would provide grant money for states or localities to transition to Vote By Mail elections. To read the entire bill, go to and search for S. 4018
