"The U.S. Postal Service on Wednesday once again confirmed why it is far and away the most popular government institution in the nation—and why it must be rescued from imminent collapse.
In a statement, USPS reiterated its longstanding policy of delivering absentee and mail-in ballots even if they lack adequate postage. "It is the Postal Service’s policy not to delay the delivery of completed absentee or vote-by-mail ballots even if no postage has been affixed or if the postage is insufficient," the agency said.
"In cases where a ballot enters the mailstream without the proper amount of postage," the USPS said, "the Postal Service will collect postage from the appropriate Board of Elections."
Civil rights groups argue that requiring voters to pay for postage for mail-in and absentee ballots is unconstitutional. In a federal lawsuit filed against Georgia election officials earlier this month, the ACLU called the state’s requirement that voters pay for postage on mail-in ballots "tantamount to a poll tax.""
