Then we mail the ballots in pre-paid envelopes. (Actually, I drop ours into the town collection box to save the taxpayers the postage.) Obviously, the state then has valid, re-countable ballots and also signed envelopes to check against authentic signatures on our voter registration and driver's licenses.

This is the best system I have ever seen. I think everyone should use it.

It depends on what your goals are. If a strong voter turnout doesn't serve your political ends, it's preferable to keep people standing in line out in the rain or snow to discourage them.
