For the early votes that are rejected, I heard that the county would get in touch with voters to

remedy the deficiency. Is there anything the Biden campaign or democratic groups can do to make sure the early voters that got rejected know how to fix it?

3. It varies from state to state

There have already been a number of court clashes trying to improve the number of situations where elections officials must try to contact voters whose ballots are rejected.

5. Thanks, good to know.

I guess there isn't a lot the campaigns can do because that could potentially be tempering or influencing the actual votes if the Biden campaign get in there and help. I am sure Trump and republicans will shout voter frauds even though Biden campaign is simply trying to get voters to fix the deficiency.

4. my state has been all mail in for years and once I had a ballot queationed because of..

..my signature. I cant remember if I had to go in and change it or if they sent it back but I was contacted and able to make it right before the election.

This just reinforces that the ballots must be sent in ASAP so one will have time to fix things.

7. I guess that also depends on when you mail your votes in. If you mail it on Nov. 2,

there is no way they can notify you before election day. I really wish every state have a ballot tracking system and so everyone can check their status. We live in 2020 afterall and we have these technology available to us. My state didn't even have a ballot checking system back during the primary in June but thankfully they added it for the general.

8. Here is the list of state-by-state rules for mail-in-ballot correction

It only mentions for signature discrepancy, but I wonder if it also applies to other errors, such as overvoting, affidavit signature in states that require it, etc.

From the National Council of State Legislatures website:
