USPS Needs Monitor to Ensure Election Compliance, States Say

The states argue in their letter that a monitor is needed because deliveries of first-class mail have declined almost 3% since the injunction was issued rather than returning to levels in July, when the changes started. The states also said the use of late and extra trips by USPS “is still at one-third to one-quarter of what it was prior to the illegal operational changes in July.”

DeJoy and the USPS “have offered no good reason as to why this number would still be so low, particularly given that they have been under order of this Court and a number of other courts to stop any prohibition on late/extra trips and have committed (and been ordered to commit) to authorizing and encouraging late trips for the delivery of Election Mail and other mail.”

The USPS didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
