The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in many Americans voting by mail – to avoid coming into contact at polling stations with people who might potentially have the virus. However, public health experts such as Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx have stressed that voting in person is safe. 

The survey of 1,842 Likely Voters was conducted by Rasmussen using a mixed mode approach from October 23-24, 2020. It included 828 Respondents who have already voted.
