You can’t make this up. CBS News reports that the Post Office is warning people not to mail checks because mail theft (and check fraud) are through the roof. The article stops short of pretending your ballot is somehow safe in the mail. Check out this excerpt:
“The post office says if you must mail a check, avoid the mailbox and bring the envelope directly into the post office.
‘If you are choosing to mail a check, it is always recommended that you use a secure mail drop such as inside a post office versus an unsecured public-facing mailbox,’ Driscoll suggested.”
Kinda sounds like voting in person is safer than ballot dropboxes. After all, isn’t your vote worth a lot more than your water bill?
