USPS launches new website to help Americans vote by mail

The US Postal Service announced Friday it has launched a new website to help Americans navigate mail-in voting.

The new page offers general “FAQ” information, guidance for finding states election websites and other helpful links.

“The Postal Service recognizes that many states are choosing to expand mail-in voting options in the upcoming elections and that there will likely be a significant increase in demand among postal customers to participate in those elections by using the mail,” the agency wrote in a news release.

The site comes in the midst of a service crisis and as President Trump, along with his postmaster general, Louis DeJoy, face increasing outrage over USPS management.

Trump has railed repeatedly against mail-in voting, claiming it would create the most “fraudulent” presidential election in US history.

He has said he’s withholding additional funding Democrats have asked for the postal service to make widespread mail-in voting during the pandemic unfeasible.

DeJoy, who took office in May, testified in front of a Senate committee Friday, and denied widespread criticism that he has removed mailboxes, cut overtime and withdrawn mail-sorting machines in an attempt hinder mass mail-in ballots.

DeJoy acknowledged reports that mail delivery times have declined, but blamed the service slowdown on the coronavirus.

He said the USPS would prioritize ballots over first-class mail to make sure they reach election officials on time.

“Our employees are experiencing the COVID pandemic also,” DeJoy testified, “and we have a significant issue in employee availability in many, many parts of the country that are leading to delays in delivery of mail.”
