USPS is Ready to Deliver the Vote
Opportunity to see mail delivery operations, speak to postal and state election leadership
Oregon is a pioneer in vote-by-mail and has a proven election process that uses the Postal Service to both send and receive ballots.
This opportunity will show your viewers and readers these facts:
- The Postal Service is working hard to deliver Election Mail across the nation.
- Our number one priority between now and the November election is the secure and timely delivery of Election Mail.
- We are working with our local election officials to make sure every ballot reaches its intended destination.
- Every voter should be aware of deadlines, especially if they choose to return their ballot by mail
The visual will include a letter carrier loading their vehicle and prepping their mail for delivery. This is the same process they will use next week when ballots begin to appear in Oregon mailboxes.
