For speedy service

Sep 14, 2020

To the editor:
A reader recently wrote in to complain that a card mailed at the Rock Hill post office didn't arrive at the recipient's Rock Hill home until 16 days later. Although the writer linked the delay to recent cuts in mail service, such a prolonged time lag is actually nothing new.
To ensure that a letter going to an address in the same town arrives promptly, simply hand it to the clerk behind the counter at the post office and point out that it's local mail. The clerk will set it aside for the driver on that route, and it will arrive the very next day.
Unfortunately, this step won't help with mail-in ballots. Personally, I intend to go to the polls on Election Day.
