As voters in some states begin to receive mail-in ballot applications for early voting, election integrity in the general election is expected to dominate the Sunday talk show circuit this weekend. 

Voting by mail has become more popular amid the coronavirus pandemic, with more states adjusting their mail-in voting rules and infrastructure to meet demand. However, the president and other Republicans have been critical of the method, claiming without evidence that it could potentially lead to fraud.

Meanwhile, cost-cutting measures  at the U.S. Postal Service have raised alarm bells for Democrats, who worry the changes will impede the timely delivery of mail-in ballots.

Secretaries of State and other election officials from the swing states of Michigan, Ohio and North Carolina will all participate in a panel on NBC’s “Meet the Press” this Sunday.
