The Colorado Secretary of State took to Twitter late Friday to hear the alarm after she said the United States Postal Service had sent a postcard to voters nationwide containing inaccurate information that could undermine the election and “suppress votes “. The postcard, which is sent to all American households, “confuses” voters in many states by telling them to go to the polls, although many states automatically send one ballot to each registered voter, Jenna Griswolt said on Twitter. The postcard also includes a recommendation for voters to “post your ballot at least 7 days before Election Day,” while some states, such as Colorado, tell voters to send it earlier.
“Why does the USPS tell voters a different timetable?” Griswold tweeted. The state ministers asked @USPS General Manager DeJoy to review a draft before sending election information to voters to ensure accuracy. But he refused. “Millions of postcards are now being printed with misinformation and sent to voters,” he said, adding that Colorado authorities had asked the USPS not to send the postcards, but had refused. “It simply came to our notice then @USPS“But their refusal to listen to election experts in conjunction with the recent slowdown in postal services in some parts of the country is beyond suspicion,” he wrote. “Voters’ confusion about postal ballots in a pandemic is unacceptable. “It can undermine confidence in the election and destroy the vote.”
