Concern about the United States Postal Service and the November election have been in the news lately, but Curry County Clerk Reneé Kolen said in a statement earlier this week that she is not concerned that the election will be disrupted.
“The USPS has announced that there will be no postal service changes until after the November election,” Kolen said. “Oregon voters can be assured that their ballots will be mailed to them and they will have the same return options and timelines as they had in the May Primary when a record 1.3 million Oregonians participated. Voters can cast their ballot just like they have in previous elections.”
She said USPS partners here in Oregon continue to support elections and go above and beyond to make sure that ballots travel efficiently through the mail.
“We understand voters are concerned whether their vote will be counted in the upcoming election,” Kolen said. “We want to personally reassure Oregonians that we continue to do everything within our power to guarantee the security and integrity of our vote by mail system, which has been a success for more than 20 years.”
