If you haven’t already heard, the U.S. Postal Service is in trouble. It's currently running out of government funding and there are concerns that the agency will collapse completely if the government doesn’t approve a substantial aid package to help the USPS weather the COVID-19 storm. And while the post office will always be important (it handles about 48 percent of the country’s mail, including those annual birthday cards from Grandma), its services are even more essential in 2020 when mail-in voting is expected to increase significantly for the election this November. In fact, the USPS has already warned voters that it could take up to two weeks for ballots to be sent out and recollected due to a dip in resources and is urging people to send their ballots to their local elections offices as quickly and early as possible.
So, what can you do to help save the U.S. Postal Service from potential collapse? Here are six suggestions that take less than 2 minutes and can be done without even leaving your couch.
