Our Commitment to Deliver for You this Election Season

Oct 22, 2020

To the editor:
With a record number of people voting by mail, the 5,400 employees of the Westchester District are actively working together with our postal colleagues throughout New York State and across the country to ensure the secure, timely delivery of our nation's Election Mail.
This is our number one priority and we are working closely with state, county, and local election officials to meet this goal.
We take our longstanding role in the electoral process very seriously and are confident in our capability and capacity to deliver in this election season.
In October and November, the Postal Service has allocated additional resources including expanded processing procedures, extra transportation, extra delivery and collection trips and overtime to ensure Election Mail reaches its intended destination in a timely manner.
Consistent with practices used in past elections, extraordinary measures will be used to accelerate the delivery of ballots including: expedited handling, extra deliveries and special pickups.
We recommend planning ahead and acting early when choosing to vote through the U.S. Mail. Our Post Offices and retail locations are open, our mail carriers are at the ready and our collection boxes will be monitored and cleared regularly.
As we continue receiving ballots cast by mail, voters in New York can be assured that the women and men of the U.S. Postal Service are united and fully focused on our public service mission of secure and timely mail delivery.
