The Democratic response to the news, however, was much more optimistic.
Do NOT put your ballot in the mail, trust me, I have a friend in the USPS. Ballots are not safe, they are often thrown in the trash and are constantly mis-sorted and sent where they should not be going, massive amounts of them. I’m told it happened in 2020 and it’s happening now— Loren Culp (@LorenCulp) July 23, 2022
Republicans have largely opposed mail-in ballots after former President Donald Trump claimed voter fraud in 2020, while Democrats have largely supported the voting process on a national level. The Postal Service reportedly sent guidance letters to election officials last week, introducing them to how the new division will handle election mail issues, according to the AP. The mail-in voting process has been going smoother so far this year, as almost 40 million ballots have been mailed to and from voters for the midterm election, USPS officials said.

🤩WOW! The US Postal Service is setting up a permanent ‘Election and Government Mail Services’, dedicated to dealing with election ballot issues. 🗳 In 2020, 135M ballots were mailed to/from voters, including our overseas #votefromabroad.🇺🇸🌍 https://t.co/WYfYjUPJo7 #demsabroad— Democrats Abroad (@DemsAbroad) July 30, 2022
