California Becomes First State to Mail Ballots to All Voters
California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an executive order requiring election officials to send mail-in ballots to every registered voter ahead of the November general election.
Newsom acknowledged attempting traditional voting on a mass scale would likely still be too dangerous even in November due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In-person voting is still expected to occur, but the number of people voting at polling places is expected to decline.
