"Tens of millions of people rely on the USPS to register to vote, to receive polling information, and to vote by mail. Voters should be able to receive a mail-in ballot, and have confidence that their completed ballot will be delivered promptly to election officials. Particularly during a deadly health pandemic, the USPS should be given the resources that it needs to deliver mail-in ballots in a timely manner, as no one should have to choose between protecting their health and exercising their right to vote.
LGBTQ people are particularly at risk of having health complications due to a coronavirus infection because they are more likely to have compromised respiratory systems. For example, 21% of LGBTQ people have asthma compared to 14% of non-LGBTQ people.
The postal service’s importance goes well beyond the election. We represent communities that are especially dependent upon the mail for prescription medications, especially medications for transgender people and people living with HIV."
