States acted quickly to expand ways for voters to cast ballots amid the coronavirus pandemic. Now, some state Republican lawmakers are looking to limit the voting method for future elections as a way to boost confidence in the election process and prevent voter fraud.

Moves to expand absentee voting measures during both primaries and the 2020 general election were lambasted by many Republicans and former President Donald Trump. Many feared the voting method would result in a “fraudulent election” and help hand the election to now-President Joe Biden. Nearly half the votes cast in the 2020 election were done via absentee ballot, which led to historic voter turnout. According to the United States Election Project, registered Democrats cast nearly 8 million more mail-in ballots than Republicans in states that keep voters’ party affiliation records.
