If 100 million mail-in ballots were processed between October 4 and Nov. 3, 2020, they’d amount to .00008 of one percent of the USPS monthly total processed mail! If that additional volume can’t be managed, fire the Postmaster General!

    Because clearly the only possible risk to consider is the ability of the USPS to handle the volume. Nothing to see here, go about your business… Please.

    Joyce,

    The USPS handled 142.6 billion pieces of mail in 2019, for an average of 11.88 billion pieces per month. An additional 100 million pieces would be 11.98 billion pieces of mail for the time period in question. So the ballots represent o.1/11.98 = 0.84%, not 0.00008%. So you were off by a factor of over 10,000.

    As @architectus observes above, the numbers are not the point. The point is that it creates unprecendented opportunities for cheating on a massive scale.

    Joyce is okay with Democrats cheating.
