Barring the unexpected, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) is poised to have another solidly successful election season, meaning it will promptly deliver ballots to and from voters.
In 2020, amid historically high voter turnout and COVID, the average time for USPS to deliver ballots from voters to election officials was 1.6 days. USPS has built off this by further improving its practices and procedures. Election officials are working better with USPS, the non-partisan leadership at USPS is committed to mail-in voting, and extraordinary measures to expedite ballots are again in place in 2022.
