New USPS policies might delay mail-in-ballots

Description:

New policies that the United States Postal Service put in place earlier this month are causing mail across the country to be backlogged. This could cause mail-in ballots to be delayed and miss being counted for the November election. Michelle Ye Hee Lee, who reported on this for The Washington Post, joined CBSN to discuss.


President Trump spoke about mail-in ballots at an event on rolling back regulations in Atlanta on Wednesday.
Michigan is experiencing a surge in mail-in ballots for the state's primary election, the first cycle allowing for no-excuse absentee ballots as a dry-run for mail-in voting on election day in November.
In this episode of "In The Loop With Christian Bryant" Christian discusses why the reliability of mail-in ballot is still being debated, schools' plans for the fall, and a push for diversity in wine sommeliers.

A missing signature, an unverified signature, or late arrival are the most common reasons for a ballot to be rejected, according to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission report from the 2016 election. CBS News political reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns and CBS News 2020 campaign reporter Adam Brewster join Elaine Quijano on CBSN's "Red and Blue" to talk about how to make sure your mail-in vote is counted.
