(TLB) Editor: The following investigative article discusses the U.S. Postal system, it’s funding and it’s employees; all with an eye on what part they might play in the 2020 Elections.
It’s no secret that many are concerned about the Mail-in Voting process and it’s availability to be manipulated by fraud. The Left and Dems want it, but the GOP and Conservatives are not hot for the idea.
Even some Postal workers view Mail-in voting “as chancy.” A (TLB) Staffer recalls talking to a Postal employee during the 2016 Election Cycle and being told that worker would be ‘going in person’ to a voting booth to make their selections. Their decision was based on the thought that their voter envelope passed through way-too-many hands before it got to the County Official to be ‘of record.’
Depending on the Political Persuasion of those involved in this article, President Trump’s involvement is partisan or he is being fiscally sound by not throwing good money after bad. And there are other concerns about pulling Postal Handling Equipment (for rotating maintenance) at this particular time, thus slowing down the mail system. The other consideration is if this maintenance is not preformed and suddenly said equipment ‘goes south,’ could the impact be catastrophic?
We do not intend to make a judgement call on this issue about who is right-wrong-or indifferent. Instead you read the article… do some critical thinking… and then you decide. (TLB)
Investigative Issues: Postal Service Warns 46 States Voters Could Be Disenfranchised by Delayed Mail-In Ballots
The Postal Service’s warnings of potential disenfranchisement came as the agency undergoes a sweeping organizational and policy overhaul amid dire financial conditions. Cost-cutting moves have already delayed mail delivery by as much as a week in some places, and a new decision to decommission 10 percent of the Postal Service’s sorting machines sparked widespread concern the slowdowns will only worsen. Rank-and-file postal workers say the move is ill-timed and could sharply diminish the speedy processing of flat mail, including letters and ballots. …
Some states anticipate 10 times the normal volume of election mail. Six states and D.C. received warnings that ballots could be delayed for a narrow set of voters. But the Postal Service gave 40 others — including the key battleground states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Florida — more-serious warnings that their long-standing deadlines for requesting, returning or counting ballots were “incongruous” with mail service and that voters who send ballots in close to those deadlines may become disenfranchised.
“The Postal Service is asking election officials and voters to realistically consider how the mail works,” Martha Johnson, a spokeswoman for the USPS, said in a statement.
