USPS shares how mail-in ballots are delivered in unprecedented election

VISALIA, Calif. (KFSN) — The 2020 presidential election is unprecedented.

A record number of Americans are voting from home because of COVID-19.

That means the United States Postal Service has been tasked with handling more election mail than ever before.

With 11 days remaining until Election Day, Visalia Postmaster Jeremy Groff wants voters to know that their ballot will be handled with care and their vote will be counted.

“This year is much higher, especially nationwide than it’s ever been,” Groff said. “But our networks have the capacity to handle the volume. Even if every single American voted on the one given day, it still would not reach the normal volume that we handle on any given day.”
