Mail Voting and Absentee Voting are the same thing

False - Some states offer mail voting which requires the Registrar’s office to automatically mail a ballot to each registered voter. Typically, in these states voters will register by Party so that they may receive the correct Primary ballot when Primary Elections occur. Absentee Voting by mail requires the voter to submit an absentee ballot application form to request a ballot to be sent to them.
