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 this Report Page. We're using the same report page for the Citizens Research Project and the VBM/USPS reports. Here's the link. https://whoscounting.us/citizens-research-project/ Let me know if you have any questions.
