Voting by mail is safe. It will take longer to tabulate results but, that's fine (as far as I'm concerned). Especially given the pandemic. And of course there will be fraudulent cases but they will be so minimal as to be inconsequential. The idea of truckloads of fake ballots is just nonsense propaganda.

Track your ballot
Most states, with help from USPS, give your ballot a code. After you've requested it, you can go to the Secretary of State's website and see where you are in the process.
It looks sort of like ordering a pizza from Domino's and being able to see on your phone when it comes out of the oven. Or filing your taxes! The federal government notifies you about that, too.
But not all states offer this feature. And they're not all Southern states opposed to mail-in voting you might suspect. You might expect Texas to require an excuse for voting by mail and not offer a tracking system. But New York also requires an excuse and also does not track your ballot. Connecticut is an example of a Northeast state temporarily allowing absentee voting by mail, although they do not track your ballot. If it doesn't arrive, you might want to head to your polling place and explore your options, which are probably filling out a provisional ballot.
Do you realise that everyone thought voting fraud was a Joke until he encouraged it?
Trump is a master manipulator.
4D chess in action.

Couple of issues;
In several states the mail votes don't start getting checked until polling day, so the polling office will have no idea if your mail vote has been tabulated.
What is the point of postal voting if you are going to attend the polling station anyway?
The main reason for the uplift in postal voting was to reduce attendance at polling stations in order to limit COVID 19 exposure. Encouraging people to attend a polling station to check this completely invalidated this.

I want every person to seriously stop for a minute and think if Obama (which by the way is a person I do not like)
said the EXACT same thing that Trump said, what would come of it?

And is it acceptable for a Democratically elected Western leader to suggest people break the law by voting twice ?
The questions are genuine as is my surprise at what he's suggesting.
