USPS connection to this Left-wing website.


USPS FOIA Request Portal


Attached Sample FOIA request (email Ned for Attachments)

Let me know if you would like to make a presentation about any information you have learned about the Vote-By-Mail voter verification process in your location/state, or the barcodes used by USPS.

Talk to your local Election Official about any information they have about mailings by The Center for Voter Information/Voter Participation Center. It may require a FOIA/Open Records request.

Keep working on your research about the “Vote-By-Mail” application process in your location and the proper procedure according to your state’s statutes. Hopefully, they are the same. I have attached the VBM/USPS National Working Group First Quarter Plan.

Keep trying to contact your USPS Ambasador (see attached map), and, or, your Local/Regional Coordinator (see attached list). Here are a few possible questions…

Intro: I’m part of a national effort that’s learning as much as we can about the USPS Election/Political Mail System. With the tremendous increase in “Vote-By-Mail”, the USPS has become the largest precinct in our elections and, unlike any other precinct, there is no citizen observation as you process millions of ballots. We believe citizen observation creates transparency and trust, and that’s why we have undertaken this effort. I have a few questions about the USPS Election/Political Mail System.

How do you handle “Undeliverable” Election Mail? Political Mail?

How do you track Election Mail? Political Mail?

The USPS has a program called “Intercept and Redirect” mail. It looks like anyone with a barcode can do this online. How does that work?

What is the Chain Of Custody for Election Mail that is delivered to the voter, that is “Undeliverable” to a voter, that is returned to the Election Office from the voter?

I’d like to take a tour of a USPS facility that handles Vote-By-Mail ballots.

Be sure to report all your findings about the VBM process and USPS contacts on the Report Page on the resources tab on whoscounting.us. We’re using the same report page for the Citizens Research Project and the VBM/USPS reports. 

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you.
