New York should use ballot drop-boxes

To the Editor:

This photo shows a ballot drop-box in Corvallis, Oregon.

This system that Oregon employs has been in use for decades with no instances of fraud. The rest of the country, including New York, would do well to adopt this system.

These ballot boxes are found all over the state. The state of Washington also uses a similar system with a similar lack of fraud.
