BARNEGAT – Protesters rallied at the Barnegat Post Office in support of the U.S. Postal Service in fears that postal slowdowns are being designed to impact the mail-in election in November.
Critics believe that President Donald Trump and Postmaster General Louis DeJoy are weakening the post office to slow the delivery of mail-in ballots for the upcoming election.
Back in June, DeJoy took over the postmaster general position and has since stated his plans to remodel the post office are to protect and secure the postal service in the long run.
More than 20 “Save Our Mail, Save Our Vote!” rallies were held statewide. People have complained about important mail such as prescription medications and Social Security checks arriving late.
