'I think it’s essential from a health reason because we want to keep people at home to vote.' Pelosi said

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) continued to push the controversial mail-in voting for the November election arguing it is “essential” for health reasons during the coronavirus pandemic.

During an interview on ABC’s “This Week," the Democratic speaker was asked by guest host Martha Raddatz:

“President Trump suggested that November’s election could be delayed over concerns over mail-in voting, that drew widespread criticism, what are your concerns come November?”

Pelosi responded:

“Well, I’m a former chair of the California Democratic Party, and I know the Republicans know how to do mail-in voting they would always prevail.”

'People shouldn’t have to choose between their health and their vote. That’s very important,' Pelosi said

She continued:

“In the most recent election we had in California, spring special election, that the president’s son Donald Trump Jr. and his daughter in law both did robos and ads saying mail in your ballots."

"It’s important for you to mail in your ballot," she added.

"So they were talking about mail-in voting at this most recent election.”

“I don’t think it benefits one party or another," Pelosi said.

"But I think it’s essential from a health reason because we want to keep people at home to vote without having them all collect on election day, but if they do want to vote in person, that we have sufficient spacing and all the rest, so it’s no risk to their health."

"People shouldn’t have to choose between their health and their vote. That’s very important.”

President Donald Trump warned in July that mail-in voting could lead to the most 'corrupt election' in US history.

But despite Pelosi's claims, an experiment into the reliability of mail-in ballots recently exposed a potentially dangerous issue in the method.

Concerns about the integrity of voting by mail prompted CBS This Morning to conduct an experiment.

The team sent out mock ballots to a fake local election office, and the results were far from encouraging.

In the experiment, the show's co-host Tony Dokoupil set up a P.O. Box to represent a local election office.

President Donald Trump warned in July that mail-in voting could lead to the most "corrupt election" in US history.

The president said mail-in voting could jeopardize the accuracy of the coming November election.

Trump wrote on Twitter:

“Mail-In Voting, unless changed by the courts, will lead to the most CORRUPT ELECTION in our Nation’s History! #RIGGEDELECTION."
