Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves defended the state's plan to conduct November's election without universal mail-in voting on CBS today.
"Every vote that is legally cast in the state of Mississippi will be counted in the November election and I'm confident that once all of those votes are counted that Donald J. Trump is going to win Mississippi and many other states," Reeves said.
Mississippi does not currently allow absentee ballots for anyone with fears of Covid-19 spread.
"We do not allow mail-in voting in the state of Mississippi. We think that our election process, which has been in place for many many years, ensures that we have a fair process in which we have the opportunity to limit fraud," the governor said.
"We've already had multiple elections in the last three months" with "very good turn out" and the same will be done in November, Reeves added.
Some context: Mississippi has one of the nation's highest positivity rates with a 19.5% 7-day rolling average, according to Johns Hopkins University data.
