As the coronavirus continues to spread across the U.S., state governments have been making plans for safely and securely voting remotely in this fall’s elections.
For some states, voting by mail is the normal way elections are done — business as usual. Others have wrestled with the idea of the pandemic being a valid reason to request an absentee ballot.

While a handful of states currently score an A, C is the most common grade — and one state earned a big, fat F. Read on to see how your state fared.
