U.S. Postal Service says -- bring on the ballots, we're ready

By Diane Bartz
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Postal Service, criticized for a cut that will result in large numbers of people voting in the mail, has taken steps to ensure it is ready for the November presidential election, shared Postman on Wednesday with.
The postal service is complying with court orders, an official said at a meeting. Four US judges have issued injunctions in the past few weeks, with the exception of service cuts prior to the November 3rd vote. Several courts have ordered that all postal mail be treated as first class or priority mail.
Postal service officials, who informed reporters but refused to be identified, said the post office had systems in place to identify ballot papers so that they could be properly prioritized to stamp all ballot papers, as some states require postmarks, and around keep track of the ballot papers.
"The ballot papers flow through the postal system. We are happy with what we see, but we remain vigilant," said one official.
Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, many more voters than usual are expected to cast ballots by post instead of in person. President Donald Trump has repeatedly said without evidence that the postal vote would lead to widespread fraud.
The postal service has approved overtime and extra money for transportation during election season, the second official said.
Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, a Trump donor who took office in June, asked for more resources, which the post office began to use on October 1, a second official said.
Lawmakers and others criticized DeJoy for organizational changes that could delay mail delivery. In August, DeJoy agreed to suspend all changes until election day.
