GOBankingRates Logo By Levi Leidy of GOBankingRates | Slide 2 of 6: The coronavirus has changed the way Americans do many things — including voting. And this year, most states are allowing residents to request an absentee ballot; either due to COVID-19 concerns or for an unspecified reason. Some exceptions are the states that are sending ballots to every registered voter, regardless of whether they request one or not. These include Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Hawaii, New Jersey, Vermont and Washington, D.C. There are also states that are requiring a reason beyond COVID-19 to request a mail-in ballot, such as being elderly or otherwise immobile. These states include Texas, New York, Indiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana and South Carolina.
