CBS19: Hundreds of responses received on survey about mail issues


Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger (D-VA-7th) says she has received more than 1,500 additional responses since the relaunch of a survey on mail delay issues.

She says people she represents are seeing delays in getting medications and bills among others.

With the General Election coming up, many people are telling Spanberger they are concerned because they haven’t gotten their ballot yet or that it won’t get returned in time to be counted.

While all of this is frustrating, Spanberger says it’s also important to not get upset with the people delivering the mail.

“My goal in receiving these survey responses is to have real stories of people and to be able to take those stories to the Postal Service management, to be able to understand the scope of the problem,” she said.

Spanberger encourages anyone who is voting by mail and who is concerned it won’t get counted to call their local registrar’s office to see about voting in person.

She also says that mail-in ballots can be dropped off at registrar’s offices.

This is the second time Spanberger has relaunched her survey regarding mail issues.
