On April 6, about a month before the election, the government introduced a bill to extend mail-in voting rights, since until then only Poles over the age of 75 and those unable to travel for medical reasons had the right to vote by post.
The postmen would become electoral agents and due to the social distancing and lock-down measures, there was no assurance that the ballots would be effectively delivered to citizens. The postbox would transform into a mobile ballot box but the law did not make it clear where and how the citizens could put the ballots into the mail boxes. The new law did not ensure either that the ballots would reach polling stations and there was no procedure in case the mail with the ballot got lost nor how the votes could be counted. Last but not least, Poles living abroad (and in majority anti-PiS) or blocked outside of the country due to the Covid-19 crisis were not certain to receive their ballots and to be able to deliver them to the counting centers on time. All in all, the access to the vote for all citizens would not be guaranteed and the universal character of the election would be compromised. The whole process of correspondence voting could be invalidated.
