USPS, ready for 2022 midterm elections, dinged by federal judge for 2020 shortcomings

The Postal Service is gearing up to deliver election mail and ballots ahead of November’s midterm elections – a task its independent watchdog office says the agency is well-equipped to handle this fall.

The USPS inspector general’s office, in a Sept. 26 report, found USPS processed nearly 10 million more pieces of election mail pieces during this year’s primary season, which runs from April 1 to June 30.

The USPS OIG also found that USPS  delivered election mail more quickly this year than it did for the same period in 2020, “even with the significant increase” in volume.

USPS, according to the IG report, delivered 97.6% of primary election mail on time, a 1% increase compared to levels seen in 2020.
