The sanctity of the secret ballot is an excellent argument against mail-in balloting, which has become vastly more popular nationally because of the pandemic, and is very popular among corrupt Democrat officials in blue states because it keeps them in power.
Even among families and households, there are political disagreements between spouses, parents, children, siblings. And there are often dramatic power dynamics even between adults. Mail-in balloting -- especially as a default option when not under emergency conditions -- allows for that pressure to be applied in any number of ways that should be anathema to a democratic republic.
People should be able to vote their ballot in secret, because they may not feel safe voting it publicly. Even if they are only among family.
