  1. If the USPS can handle sending me a Bed Bath & Beyond $20 coupon every two weeks for the past 7 years, it can handle mail in voting.

    • You say that but the trump administration is defunding the post office and seeding it with cultists, making fraud actually happen because they made the postal service making mistakes like, sending 1000 ballots to one address

    • @SinBae Well, they seem pretty dumb since you can send 1,000 ballots to one place, but they will only accept one signed ballot.

    the post office reliably delivers essential medicines every day. Ballots are not a problem!

  3. Can the post office deliver millions of tons of junk mail? Then I think they can handle it…
    This in no way is diminishing the fact that we all need to vote Donny diapers out. I just thinking the premise of this being news is pathetic.

      You do realize it’s true..?
      The Apprentice staff confirmed he wears diapers and routinely shat himself on set

    Retired in 2018 after 35 yrs as a City Carrier, Miami , Utah, Kansas City , North and ended with Central Fl . Worked in wealthy , middle class , poor neighborhoods, no one ever came to me on my many routes even when I was brand new that their mail was stolen , especially when each Postmaster weeks before an election would give standup talk on the importance of KEEPING THOSE BALLOTS separate from regular out going mail . We were drilled each day , and a clerks would pick through the daily outgoing mail to make sure none got tossed in with regular mail . Yes same with April 15 tax day , we handle it .

  5. Bunkerboy thinks Dems are going to cheat. His way to saying repubs are planning to cheat. Although it’s only been done once in history, by Republikkkans.

    Make sure you vote in advance, register to vote by mail as soon as you can, do whatever it takes to keep the lines short on election day.

    We cannot allow Republican voter suppression tactics to defeat us!

    • Also, there’s a number people can call to make sure their ballot was counted. I believe the number is different in every state, though I don’t know for sure.

      @Bud Fudlacker the Shitgibbon* will be indicted in 7 months

      @Nicholas Klauba LOL Mueller time?? Just stop crying!

      @Bud Fudlacker Robert Mueller (lifelong conservative) proved that Republican lawmakers care more about Trump* than their country. Also, he said that a sitting POTUS can be indicted after leaving office.

  7. Oregon has had vote by mail since 1993 it’s never had a problem. Stop spreading this kind of tripe! It doesn’t help and just toes trumps line. This is why I don’t watch nbc

    • Here in Ohio, a mail-in ballot must be postmarked by election day, but it has 10 days after election day to be received.

      In other words, even if you ballot arrives a day or two late, it will still be counted.

      I suppose that there is a theoretical possibility that the news media might call an election on election night, only to have the final, certified count change the announced result. I think that is pretty unlikely.

  8. Trump has also defunded and compromised US postal service.

  9. No wander trump didn’t funding the postal service.

    They forgot that Christmas is a thing

    The post office can’t handle 2 or 3 pieces f mail per household? The Post Office is not the problem. It’s the people sending and receiving the mail. They don’t want you using vote by mail.

  12. As soon as i get my mail in ballot, it’s sent out next Day.

    Have you seen them handle Christmas cards I’m sure they can handle absentee voting! That’s a b.s excuse just like all the potential fraud the Republicans are claiming I’ve worked as a poll worker for yrs there are safeguards like signature don’t match your redflagged believe me the pollworkers take it very seriously and are not looking for felony charges!

    The us postal service can handle mail in ballots.

  15. Flavius Stilicho | July 1, 2020 at 7:30 PM | Reply

    Just 125 days until Election Day and counting down! _Vote ALL complicit enablers out of office._

  16. The USPS can handle it but republicans can’t.

  17. This is why trump tried to shut them down. If everyone votes by mail the republicans would lose the election.

    States have been voting by mail for years.

  19. Of course, they can. This is a red herring. Please.
