CNN’s Kyra Phillips talked with Oregon’s Secretary of State, Bill Bradbury. Bradbury believe that an Oregon style mail-in election could work everywhere. Bradbury said that Oregon’s voter validation system is the most comprehensive in the Nation. Oregon uses voter signature to verify voter identity.

Bradbury said, “The best check you have of making sure the ballot is from the person it is supposed to be from is you check their signature. i want to emphasize the counties check every signature, not just some signatures. they check every signature on every ballot against that voter’s original voter registration signature. it is the most comprehensive fraud protection system in elections in america.”
