USPS Handles Half a Billion Pieces of Mail Per Day so 40 Million Over a Month’s Time Would Be About 0.3% Daily Increase


The roughly 450,000 employees of the U. S. Postal Service work together to deliver almost 500,000,000 pieces of mail daily, so a big increase of absentee ballots will be no great burden on the USPS, and even if disastrous universal mail-in balloting were allowed, the U. S. postal system wouldn’t be overburdened, because 40,000,000 mail-ins would be an increased burden of about 10%., or really about .3% per day for about month’s time while those ballots would be coming in.
