The United States Postal Service (USPS) is falling apart at the seams and many Americans are blaming the Trump administration. The USPS may have to deal with the U.S. election ballot process, as mail-in votes may be the dominant practice thanks to the coronavirus. Amid the American public’s concerned reaction about the internal problems at the USPS, on August 13, the postal entity published a patent for a blockchain-based mail-in voting system.
Every single day on social media and Reddit forums, users in the United States are discussing the United States Postal Service (USPS) and how the operation might be in ruins. Americans are beginning to realize on a nationwide scale that the USPS is financially broke and not sustainable.
On social media, U.S. citizens are sharing images of locked letter stations and mailboxes being carted away on flatbeds. The Trump administration’s Postmaster General Louis DeJoy also made a decision to remove hundreds of high-volume mail-processing machines nationwide outraging Democrats.
Many Americans are aware that mail-in voting most likely will be the most dominant method used this November during the U.S. 2020 Presidential Election. Trump has explained to the media on a number of occasions that it’s likely the voting process will go down in this manner.
DeJoy’s recent moves make some people believe that voter suppression is happening and a left-leaning direct action organization called “Shut Down D.C.” has organized a protest outside the Postmaster’s home.
However, President Trump commended the Postmaster’s recent moves and said DeJoy “wants to make the post office great again.”
Amid all the indignant complaints from Democrats, the USPS seems to be moving toward leveraging blockchain technology in a new mail-in voting patent
