Absentee mail in balloting is a very low percentage of votes. What is being proposed is upwards of 40%-50% of all votes cast. Maybe 70-80 million nationwide this year. That is more than Christmas cards kids.
The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) is ready to deliver more than 28 million packages per day between Dec.16-21, and will average 20.5 million packages per day through the remainder of the year.
With a projected 800 million package deliveries between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, the Postal Service delivers more packages to homes than any other shipper.

1. How much will the postage cost for a mail in ballot and is that not considered a poll tax?
2. Not all pieces of mail receive a dated postmark, how can we determine legitimately late delivery versus fraudulent balloting attempts if a postmark is missing?
3. If the USPS is understaffed and going broke under current conditions, then how can it afford this massive balloting effort without collapsing completely from the workload?
4. Covid can live on paper for a few days, aren’t we putting are most basic infrastructure (the entire postal service) under tremendous risk?
5. How can voting be both anonymous and secure, without any verification of voter eligibility?
