    Why can’t all of the polling locations have drop of boxes?

    The new Postmaster General Louis DeJoy has been making structural changes to how the USPS operates that cuts out overtime so on days where the mail load is heavy, what doesn’t get processed gets left behind so in reports I have been hearing the mail is starting to back up. This will be making a difficult situation horrible and considering that lots of people including Veterans get their medications via the USPS, this could end up becoming life threatening for many Americans.

    To vote by mail you would first have to trust the US Postal Service. We are voting by mail but are hand delivering. Its the only way we would feel good about it.
