                USPS Quietly Added Rule Prohibiting Workers From Signing Mail-In Ballots As Witnesses

                The U.S. Postal Service enacted a rule this summer banning its clerks from signing mail-in ballots as witnesses while on duty, a restriction that can prevent the ballots from being counted.
                The Anchorage Daily News reported on Tuesday that Alaska Division of Elections Director Gail Fenumiai had sent the USPS a letter last Thursday seeking an explanation for complaints that postal workers in her state had been telling voters they were not allowed to sign the ballots.

                “This came as surprise to the state because we know in past elections postal officials have served as witnesses,” Fenumiai wrote. “Rural Alaska relies heavily on postal officials as they are often sometimes the only option for a witness.”

                In fact, Alaska’s instructions on sending in ballots state that a postal worker counts as an “authorized official” who can sign on as a voter’s witnesses.

                Per the Anchorage Daily News, USPS Principal Product Management Specialist Daniel Bentley sent the Alaska official a reply confirming the new restriction.

                “Postal Employees are prohibited from serving as witnesses in their official capacity while on duty, due in part to the potential operational impacts,” Bentley wrote. “The Postal Service does not prohibit an employee from serving as a witness in their personal capacity off-duty, if they so choose.”

                Alaska is one of several states that require people who vote by mail to have their ballots signed by a witness, otherwise the ballot will not be considered valid. Virginia, a key swing state, has the same requirement, though a judge ruled in May that the policy may be waived for Virginians concerned for their safety amid COVID-19.

                The USPS did not respond to TPM’s request for comment at the time of writing.

                The revelation comes as the USPS suffers a crisis of delays caused by General Postmaster Louis DeJoy’s controversial changes to the agency’s procedural policies. Under fire from lawmakers who accuse him of deliberately sabotaging the USPS on behalf of President Donald Trump, DeJoy announced on Tuesday that he was suspending his proposed changes until after the November elections.

                What proposed changes will be suspended. All? Some? If some, which ones?

                • Can the post office deliver?
                  Last minute changes in mail in ballots must depend on it.
                  Clear election results depend on it.
                  Vote confidence depends on it.

                    We have a constitutional right to a postal service. This latest attempt to strangle it hurts everyone, regardless of party affiliation.

                      THAT ... and it’s crystal clear that trump’s real motivation is voter suppression. As before, he knows he can’t win, so he will steal the election.

                        No surprise that DeJoy is a million-dollar Trump donor and his wife works for Trump...

                        Shortly after USPS Postmaster General Louis DeJoy issued a public statement saying he wanted to "avoid even the appearance" that any of his policies would slow down election mail, USPS instructed all maintenance managers around the country not to reconnect or reinstall any mail sorting machines they had already disconnected, according to emails obtained by Motherboard.

                        "Please message out to your respective Maintenance Managers tonight. They are not to reconnect / reinstall machines that have previously been disconnected without approval from HQ Maintenance, no matter what direction they are getting from their plant manager," wrote Kevin Couch, Director of Maintenance Operations. "Please have them flow that request through you then on to me for a direction." A subsequent email sent to individual maintenance managers across various regions forwarded that request along with a single sentence: "We are not to reconnect any machines that have previously been disconnected."

                              • what is it like to be a kid nowadays?

                                good question

                                first it was climate change

                                weren't they excused from school to demonstrate?

                                now they have to wear a mask so gramma doesn't die

                                terrorism is now a cottage industry

                                so much for protecting the kids

                                no wonder abortion is so popular
