Election mail is a mailpiece that an authorized election official creates for voters participating in the election process, while political mail is mail used for political campaign purposes. General and midterm elections are scheduled every four and two years, respectively. Special elections are also held outside of this cycle for specific purposes, often to fill an office that has become vacant. The next midterm elections will be held on November 6, 2018. The objective of our audit was to evaluate the Postal Service’s readiness for timely processing of election and political mail for the 2018 midterm elections.
