Under no circumstances should we have an all-mail election! Even without an all-mail election, the Democrats will perpetrate massive registration and voter fraud. With it, well, what do you call a situation that is a thousand times worse than massive fraud? An unmitigated disaster, that's what. And almost certainly a loss for President Trump. For those of you who think an all-mail election is a good idea, and that I engage in hyperbole, I suggest you read almost any article in recent years by Hans von Spakovsky. He's the expert, and the news ain't good.

Apparently (I have not verified this) only a small amount goes to ensuring voter safety and the rest will go to upgrading facilities which will then be sold. The company in charge of selling these facilities is owned by Nancy Pelosi's husband. Shameful and should be, if not, illegal.

The Postmaster General stated in Congressional testimony that money was not the issue, and is not needed to accomodate an increase in mail because of the upcoming election. I will take him at his word and vote 'no.'

Another reason to vote against the measure is that the democrats have made it a habit to write extraordinarily long bills and slip in little surprises at the last minute, with insufficient time for members of Congress to thorougly read and digest the bill. I would assume that if more money is allocated to the Postal Service, there would also be a provision that every state must conduct all mail-in balloting. Oregon and Washington State do mail-in voting well, but they had years of planning, and they meticulously maintain accurate voter registration rolls and compare signatures on the outer envelope to the one on file. Other states, including my own state of Virginia, refuse to maintain current and accurate voter rolls, so all mail-in voting is an invitation to fraud. Too many stray ballots would be sitting around intended for people who died, moved out of the state, or were never eligible to vote at all. Many of those ballots would be filled out and sent in by those who found them.

There is ample evidence of misappropriated or lost ballots from the primary elections the year.

The Post Office is already wasting too much of the taxpayers' money. We don't need to give them more. And we should not be voting by mail. Too many opportunities to sway the outcome.

It depends on what type of service they paid for. If it's Express Mail it may arrive tomorrow, if Priority Mail in two or three days, and regular mail 3-6 days.
