2. "Why 'Vote-by-Mail' Elections are a Terrible Idea for Democracy"
Here's one article by Brad Friedman, who has spoken with activists in Oregon:

Why 'Vote-by-Mail' Elections are a Terrible Idea for Democracy
....
"Many Oregonians will tell you they believe their system is wonderful, yet many of the Election Integrity advocates on the ground there, including many we've spoke with at the Oregon Voting Rights Coalition, warn that the success of the state's VBM program is largely based on good procedures put in place by Bradbury, and which they fear may disappear, as they are not statutory, when he is someday no longer the state's SoS."
