In a segment for Scripps Television’s Newsy, which runs on cable television and leading streaming platforms, Lexington Senior Fellow Paul Steidler assured that the recent removal of mailboxes in several states is unrelated to the president’s opposition to mail-in voting. Nor is it a widespread or partisan practice: only 15 states had more than a dozen mailboxes hauled away this summer, and they were a mix of red and blue states.
When the postal service takes mailboxes offline, there will often be many removed at once. “It’s really not something surprising,” said Steidler. “It’s certainly not anything anyone should be worried about or alarmed about.”
