As reported earlier, WNEG News contacted Toccoa Post Office Postmaster Kevin Moore regarding concerns over undelivered Elections Office precinct Cards and Absentee Ballot Request Forms, as well as inaccurate “undeliverable” stickers attached by the post office to forms returned to the Election Office after having been mailed to voters. Moore informed WNEG News that any inquires would need to be addressed to the Regional Communications Specialist. On Monday, WNEG News sent an email with questions regarding the issues to the provided email address for the Regional office.

Yesterday morning, WNEG News received the following response from USPS Corporate Communications Specialist Evelina Ramirez with Media Relations:

Good morning, Jessica – Below is our statement.
