USPS Board of Governors: We’re applying lessons from the election and the holiday season
Board of Governors of the U.S. Postal Service
One example of our vital mission and outstanding performance during the pandemic was delivering election mail to the American people, the largest and most successful election by mail in the history of our nation. Last November, under the leadership of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and the Postal Service Executive Leadership Team, the men and women of the Postal Service delivered at least 135 million ballots to or from voters in the general election, with 99.7% of all election ballots arriving at their intended destination within five days, and an average of 1.6 days to deliver ballots from voters to election officials, better than the defined service standard.
