Hmmm. Shoe on the other foot.


Amazon.com Inc. is asking the National Labor Relations Board to consider having workers vote in person -- rather than by mail -- on a proposal to form a union at an Alabama warehouse.

The company formally requested a postponement of the vote so the labor regulator can reconsider its earlier ruling. Under the current plan, workers will have most of the next two months to vote by mail.

...

The world’s largest online retailer said that a mail election raised the risk of fraud and the coercion of workers. It also said the process would depress turnout, arguing that as many as 29% of its more than 5,800 employees eligible to vote wouldn’t do so or would return incorrectly completed ballots.

Breathing rarified air.
Did Amazon ever release a statement arguing for voting by mail in the general election? I ask because thats what your OP seems to imply.

The owner of Amazon also owns the WaPo.

I guess Bezos doesn't trust mail in voting eh? He fears fraud if used in a Democratic union vote.
