    No, but Congress can mandate voting by mail in all the states. Senators Wyden and Klobuchar already introduced such a bill in the Senate (not likely to go anywhere while Republicans are in charge) in March:

    That is not a mandate to vote by mail. It is a requirement for all states to offer it as an option.

    Yeah, I wasn’t suggesting the bill would require ONLY voting by mail – but states would be mandated to offer voting by mail to everyone.
