“Fraud”, “Disaster”, “Scam”… This is how Donald Trump sees the impact of the postal vote on the 2020 presidential election. Because due to the Covid-19 epidemic, twenty-three states out of the fifty in the country have made it easier to vote by mail. Almost 84% of Americans could therefore vote this way.

While the stake of a remote vote was primarily health, the inflammatory statements of Donald Trump made it a partisan issue: the Republicans are now attacking mail-in nerds (the “postal ballots”), while the Democrats call for mass voting by mail. The battle of opinion rages on as existing studies, however, tend to show this vote to be rather safe and neutral.

But beyond the political duel, the postal vote casts uncertainty on the results of the presidential election. The rules vary from one state to another, counting postal votes takes time and mail delays are to be feared: the ballot comes when the postal services are in difficulty after restructuring launched by their new boss. , Louis DeJoy, a relative of Donald Trump.
