(WHEC) — The U.S. Postal Service announced on Friday that it has launched a new website to help Americans vote by mail.
The website provides direct links to federal and state election information and resources. The site also offers information for military and overseas voters.
In a press release on Friday, the USPS says,
"The Postal Service recognizes that many states are choosing to expand mail-in voting options in the upcoming elections and that there will likely be a significant increase in demand among postal customers to participate in those elections by using the mail. In response, the Postal Service has updated its website to serve both voting customers seeking information on how to use the mail to vote and election officials seeking resources to help make their administration of the upcoming elections a success."
The launch comes as states are looking to expand their mail-in voting options ahead of the upcoming election.
