At the Polls: Will the Fate of the USPS Affect Voter Access?
September 22, 2020
It’s no secret that the postal service has been under attack. Earlier this year, President Trump appointed one of his supporters to serve as Postmaster General. Then, just a few months from the election, that appointee, Louis DeJoy, ordered changes to how the postal service operates. Here’s the problem: it appears those changes could be politically motivated and could impact our ability to access the polls through vote-by-mail this fall. Joining us this week to discuss are Bobby Hoffman, ACLU’s Voting Rights Advocacy and Policy Counsel, and Joyce Harris, a postal worker.
