Not necessarily the mail in ballots themselves, but the volume of them.
The sheer number of mail in ballots surprised me.

I mean, I can understand not wanting to go be in a large crowd on
election day to vote. However, with the early voting option, I had many
family members all over the country go vote in person without crowds.

I simply don't trust the mail enough to be 100% confident my ballot
wouldn't get lost accidentally, let alone any potential fraud. I've had
too many instances of mail not mine being delivered to my address to
feel otherwise, and not just my neighbors, but mail for addresses not in
my neighborhood.

Best regards!
