No-excuse mail-in began in 2014 leading to large increase in absentee/mail-in ballots and votes.

  • A 1987 law made it possible for precincts to switch to mail-in only
  • In 2016 the thresholds from 1987 were lowered; outside metro precincts with fewer than 1,000 registered voters, metro areas with fewer than 400, could opt for mail-in only
  • There are currently 1,000+ precincts (out of 4,000 statewide) whose voters may ONLY vote by mail (mail ballots can be hand-delivered, but no in-precinct election day voting allowed)
