Voces Unidas Files Lawsuit Against U.S. Postal Service
Updated: Sep 28, 2020
Voces Unidas, along with other plaintiffs, and with support from the National Redistricting Foundation, today filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia that will challenge recent policy changes at the U.S. Postal Service that are creating mail delays and threatening the ability of voters to reliably submit their ballots and have them counted.
In the midst of a pandemic, it is simply unacceptable for the U.S. Postal Service to make these unnecessary cuts to service while more Americans than ever prepare to vote by mail.
The case is narrowly focused on two policy changes that have slowed down pieces of mail by up to three days.
We are asking the court to reverse these policies and appoint an independent monitor to oversee service in the coming months before people start casting ballots.
As the first Latino-created, Latino-led non-profit organization in the region, Voces Unidas has launched a first-of-its-kind civic engagement campaign to educate and ensure that more Latino voters participate in the 2020 election.
Voter protection is part of our civic engagement campaign, which now includes challenging voter suppression and unconstitutional political interference in elections through the courts.
