DECATUR, Ga. — Decatur homeowners living in the Chelsea Heights neighborhood say prescriptions, absentee ballots, and bills are just a few of the items residents say they’ve been waiting days to receive.

“My neighbor is 86 years old, disabled, and has been waiting for her ballot all week,” said Nancy Wade.

Nancy Wade told Channel 2 Investigative Reporter Ashli Lincoln that she and her neighbors had to wait a week before receiving their mail.

“The lady told me that they send the mail out to be delivered, but if it’s too late in the day, they bring the mail back,” Wade explained.

Employees at the Decatur post office told Wade the delay was due to a shortage of employees. Channel 2 Action News spotted one mail delivery worker making rounds in the neighborhood Friday afternoon, but Wade says they’ve only received a fraction of their mail.
