Statement from Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold on President Trump’s Comments on United States Postal Service Funding for Mail Ballots
Below is a statement from Secretary of State Jena Griswold regarding President Trump’s comments that he is withholding United States Postal Service funding to restrict universal vote by mail.
“The President stated that he’s withholding U.S. Postal Service funding to prevent vote by mail. This is voter suppression. It’s voter suppression to undermine the safest method to vote during a pandemic, and force Americans to risk their lives to vote. Colorado’s election model is the nation’s gold standard, and we use both mail ballots and ballot drop boxes. Our use of drop boxes is even more crucial as the U.S. Postal Service is under attack.”
