The USPS is now a flier/junk mail delivery service, which can not be stopped.
Or, maybe the GENIUS at the head of the USPS saw the President by Mail election as the right time to slow down the mail and extort more money.
I bet for a 1 Trillion addition he can insure 30% of votes are never counted.
Let's see...knock of 30% in NY and 30% in Co and 30% in Ca...hmm, now I can get behind that idea.

It has been true that the only OFFICIAL means recognized by departments of government is snail mail, crucial correspondance is casually handled and delivered by the USPS and said to be secure. Those folks who are unplugged and have not email know not the difficulty they create and no one to blame but.....their agent.
Mailing across the street takes a week.

No Will but mailed a package to my Gbaby girl for her birthday and it came 3 times after being assured each time it would be delivered!!! I finally contacted the Postmaster and it made it almost a month after the initial date. If anyone wonders why the postal service is in trouble...they can start there!

One of my renters sent their rent check via mail.  It showed up about 30 days after it was postmarked.  First time that ever happened for me.

I'm with Thomas J. Nelson, REALTOR ® e-Pro CRS RCS-D Vets on this one.  Important stuff goes to a secure offsite facility and is retrieved sporadically.  The stuff at the curb is 99% junk mail and is collected usually on trash day.  I have gone on a nearly 4 week vacation before and come home to one or two legitimate pieces of mail and a bunch of stuff that goes straight to the trash.

Amazon has placed a great burden on the Post Office. The pandemic has many more people shopping on line. According to the USPS on average each carrier looses between 3 -12 pieces of mail a day. The actual total is hard to state,due to the fact that the Post Office has no idea how many pieces of mail it gets everyday. Recently I received a ballot for the local school board election. It was on time but besides my wife and I , we also received 5 additional ballots for "former" residences of our property. We have been here 18 years! Something to really think about?
