Absentee ballots are a major source of fraud. Probably there'd be no real need for >99% of them if you could vote at any polling place.

Once you have absentee ballots, requiring the same effort as voting to get, with a caveat for delivery to shut ins(as voting IS that important) I simply do not see how they are any more a source for fraud than anything else.

Playing make believe that absentee ballots are any easier to abuse than a system with no way to stop it from being used for fraud as we have now is a lot like the Zimmerman trial

It is simply something to be used to divert attention from the real stuff that is very dirty and actually important.
