Letter Carriers union work to increase vote-by-mail participation

Share

Today we look at efforts to increase vote-by-mail participation in Florida. Two bills moving through the Florida Senate and House aim to encourage remote voting by changing the language from “Absentee voting” to “Vote-by-Mail”. Two members of the Florida Association of Letter Carriers, Alan Peacock and Al Freedman, explain that many voters are confused by the term absentee voting and mail voting, thinking they must be absent from their voting county in order to vote by mail. They also talk about the current health of the postal service and the requirement for it to put aside billions of dollars for postal work retirees for the next 75 years.
