4. No, this is overkill

There are environmental and other costs associated with a special trip. I do business via mail so I have watched postal performance carefully. There are definitely delays, typically 2 days. Sometimes five or six days, in rare cases. But so far everything I have mailed has gotten to the intended recipient. So mail a week early. Or 10 days early to be safe.

And honestly your single vote is not going to change the result. I vote as a moral act, not as a practical act. And it makes me feel good. If your vote is lost? Joe is still going to win in California by three million. He is still going to lose in Wyoming. But it really does cost you several dollars in gas and repairs to drive. And it does add pollution to the air.

Just vote by mail.
