A few weeks ago, we gave you a list of six states that looked to be the most difficult places to vote during the pandemic. Interestingly enough, a couple have switched things up since then. Connecticut has officially made it easier for folks to vote by mail during the pandemic. (So has South Carolina, ICYMI.) Meanwhile, Missouri can't figure out what to do with voting from home.

Michigan is planning to send out applications to all voters to register for absentee ballots ahead of its August primary and the November general election.

And while most folks have been distracted by how Covid-19 is affecting the election, a quick reminder that cybersecurity is still a problem.

Don't miss your last chance to vote in the Elite Eight of our "Best of the Rest" bracket.
