    (CBS4) – The U.S. Postal Service predicts 2020 will be a record-setting year for mail delivery because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will have to wait until the holiday season is over to understand just how much of a record is set. However, officials say it is more important than ever before to mail packages and holiday cards early. USPS Denver based communications specialist James Boxrud says now is the right time to get parcels in the mail. “Try to avoid procrastination and get packages out as soon as you get them. Mail early this year,” Boxrud said. He told CBS4’s Britt Moreno people are using the mail system in a unique way during this pandemic. He says more people are buying online this year rather than shopping in stores because of coronavirus, so naturally there are more deliveries. “Due to the coronavirus so many people turned to online shopping for necessities, so there is a lot of mail in the mail stream. You add a holiday season on top of that — things will take longer.” He says more...

They say that’s typical this time of year, but with more people working from home, they want everyone to be aware of their extended hours. “During the holidays we come in at six,...

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis couldn’t initially cast his ballot this week because someone illegally changed his address online, a complication that resulted in a suspect’s arrest on felony charges and raised questions about the security of the state’s online registration system.

The problem was quickly fixed and the Republican governor and close ally of President Donald Trump was allowed to vote. He then contacted the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, which determined the record had been changed online from a house in Naples, Florida. The FDLE says in court records filed in Collier County that agents went to the house Tuesday, where Anthony Guevara, 20, admitted changing DeSantis’ address through the elections website in Leon County, where Tallahassee is located.

    The 2020 presidential election is around the corner, and we know the importance of this election cycle cannot be overstated. We also know that Donald Trump’s attacks on the United States Postal Service (USPS) are already affecting mail now as people report major delays. We know, too, that along with Trump’s rallies against mail-in voting, obsessively describing it as “corrupt” (in spite of doing so himself to vote in Florida) that sabotaging the mail may also affect mail-in ballots. While some people vote by mail every year, it’s fair to believe that many more people will try to do so in this election cycle as we continue to face the novel coronavirus pandemic.  At this point, you might be wondering not only how to vote in your own state, but how to make sure your friend, family member, distant classmate, and so on can vote in theirs. As much as outreach and encouragement are important—and they are—many people may reply by saying it’s too complicated or confusing to figure out how to vote. And to be frank, it is confusing, inconsistent, and downright stressful...

    Democrats, as usual, want to make sure that every eligible person is registered and able to vote in November's general election, and they've beefed up their online tool, called I Will Vote, to make that simpler and safer for voters around the country. The site is also available in Spanish. "The stakes for our country have never been higher, and we’re making sure Americans have all the information they need in order to make their plan to vote and send Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to the White House," Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez said in a statement released Monday, announcing the expanded portal. You can select your state, then register, check your registration status, and obtain all the information you need for your state to either vote by mail or vote in person. That's part of a larger digital get-out-the-vote effort which includes texting and calling potential voters rather than in-person canvassing, which has largely stopped because of the pandemic. Republicans, too, are trying to get their voters to vote by mail. They're having a more difficult time of...
    TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey residents can now register to vote online, Gov. Phil Murphy said Tuesday. The state Division of Elections, which is overseen by the secretary of state, launched its first online registration tool on Friday, though the Democratic governor announced it Tuesday. So far about 13,000 people have successfully registered online. New Jersey will for the first time hold its general election mostly by mail this year because of the governor’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak. “Especially as we face this ongoing pandemic, we we are committed to reducing barriers that may prevent potential voters from participating in our elections,” Secretary of State Tahesha Way said in a statement. There is also an online ballot-tracking tool voters can sign up for to keep track of their votes. The governor and Democrat-led Legislature passed a measure to require that all registered voters be sent a mail-in ballot. There will be no in-person machine voting except for people with disabilities. Anyone wishing to vote in person must cast a provisional ballot, which means it would be counted only...

Some Marylanders who applied for mail-in ballots online are still receiving applications in the mail, leading some lawmakers and voting rights advocates to worry about voter confusion in an already unprecedented election. State Sen. Cheryl C. Kagan (D-Montgomery) said she and her staff went through the State Board of Elections’ multistep online ballot application process on July 29. And although voters who fill out the online request aren’t supposed to receive an application in the mail, Kagan and her staff members all got one on Thursday. Kagan said she and her staff aren’t alone: She took to Facebook to ask if anyone else had applied online but still received a mailed application, and garnered dozens of responses from bewildered voters. Others said they’d applied online and didn’t receive an application in the mail. Thousands of Marylanders have filled out the online request form so far, and Kagan worries that the extra mailed applications will confuse voters and cause...
    The city’s embattled Board of Elections opened up online registration to receive absentee ballots for the November election on Friday, allowing Big Apple residents to quickly register to vote by mail as the coronavirus pandemic rolls on. The move comes a day after Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a package of legislation that allowed voters to use the COVID-19 outbreak as a qualifying reason to receive an absentee ballot. Additionally, the newly minted laws also bar the Board of Elections from tossing absentee ballots simply because they do not have a postmark, provided the post office delivers them by Nov. 4 — the day after the election. The bills were passed by lawmakers in Albany after the city Board of Elections bungled absentee voting during the June primaries by mailing ballots to voters late and disqualifying roughly one in five ballots it got back. Thousands of ballots were disqualified because they were not stamped by the post office as having been mailed by election day for the June primaries, even though the Board of Elections had received them beforehand. Elected...
