Last week, Murray Morgan received a call from representatives of the state of Texas.
Morgan is the CEO of Kingsley, the world’s leading manufacturer of secure library drop-off boxes. The company also produces similar boxes for drop-off voting. As COVID-19 potentially wreaks havoc on in-person polls, and as the USPS is facing potential sabatoge to manage a surge in mail-in votes, these boxes will be an essential way for millions, or tens of millions of people, to turn in their ballots during the 2020 presidential election. In 2016, 21% of all votes were mail-in ballots. In 2020, that number could surge as high as 76%.
