Voting at home might be a good thing for increasing participation. Of the top 10 states in turnout in the general election of 2016, three sent ballots to everyone at home. An impressive result for such a laudable reform! But four others in the top 10 were battleground states, defined as states where the popular vote margin ended up less than 3%. (check all my math). So if both campaigns ran to win the national popular vote, turning every state into a battleground, we can guess that this reform would produce a similar increase in turnout. Both reforms together might give America a truly participatory democracy.
