USPS Asks Federal Judge To Allow Postcards About Mail-In Voting
Colorado's secretary of state filed a lawsuit against the post office and Postmaster General Louis Dejoy, saying the mailer includes misinformation.
The U.S. Postal Service is asking a federal judge in Colorado to reconsider a ruling that temporarily bans the agency from sending out a postcard with information about mail-in voting.
Colorado's secretary of state filed a lawsuit against the post office and Postmaster General Louis DeJoy — saying the mailer includes misinformation.
The postcard encourages voters to request mail-in ballots at least 15 days before Election Day.
But Colorado, along with many other states, automatically sends ballots to every registered voter.
The Postal Service says it's already in the process of sending 200,000 mailers. The agency says it would be "extremely burdensome" on postal workers to stop them from being delivered. The judge's ruling is in effect through September 22.
