Voting -- it seems to have everyone on edge this election. On the right, there are fears -- most loudly expressed by the president -- that the rapid expansion of mail voting could be vulnerable to corruption. On the left, the anxiety is around the Postal Service, and whether ballots will get where they need to be on time. Where does all this leave Colorado, a state that's mailed ballots to all voters for the past six years? Purplish hosts Bente Birkeland, Caitlyn Kim, and Andrew Kenney sort out fact from fear, and share what they've been hearing from voters on the topic.
