Trump-Throttled Post Office May Disenfranchise American Troops.

Georgia voters in the military and citizens living overseas are concerned that their mail-in ballots won’t get delivered in time to be counted in the January 5th senatorial runoff elections. The resource-starved U.S. Postal Service is reeling from Louis DeJoy’s cutbacks, COVID-19 staff outages, and after-effects and backlogs of the Christmas rush. USPS has pledged to fast-track election mail, but on-time mail deliveries in the Atlanta area were as low as 54% a few weeks ago. Ballots must arrive by 7:00 PM today to be valid. Results of the contest may determine control of the U.S. Senate.
