USPS says it will undo nearly all of Louis DeJoy's most controversial policies and make election mail its number one priority.

The United States Postal Service will be telling all of its employees that it is undoing virtually all of the policies Postmaster General Louis DeJoy initiated more than two months ago that delayed mail across the country, according to a memo obtained by Motherboard.

The memo, titled "Ready to deliver Election Mail for the nation," comes after the USPS's hand was forced. As the memo itself acknowledges, two separate federal judges issued injunctions requiring the USPS to roll back these policies, including limiting overtime and mandating rigid adherence to truck schedules even if mail was not on them. In the wake of those rulings, some mail sorting machines that had been deactivated but not disassembled were being reactivated across the country. A USPS spokesman didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

According to the new instructions, overtime is "authorized and instructed to be used as necessary," managers are "authorized to use their best business judgment to meet service commitments" and hold trucks so mail is on time, retail hours are not to be changed except in emergencies, collection boxes aren't to be removed except for extraordinary events like extreme weather "or civil unrest," and election mail is to be processed as first-class mail even without first-class postage.

In some instances, the memo is a precise reversal of the July 10 memo that instituted the policies to begin with and kicked off months of extraordinary Congressional and public scrutiny regarding the postal service. Whereas the July memo stated "One aspect of these changes that may be difficult for employees is that—temporarily—we may see mail left behind or mail on on the workroom floor or docks" whereas today's memo states "Focusing on the transportation schedule does not mean that mail should be left behind — it should not.”

This election will not be stolen by Trump and his gang of thieves.

I don't believe DeJoys. *shrug* He's a Trump crony and a liar. Postal employee whistleblowers will eventually get the story out, as they did before, but next time it will be too late. There is no length to which Trump will not go to "win" this election, even if he takes it to his hand-picked SCOTUS where he believes with good reason "his" justices will vote the way he tells them to.

Let's seriously hope so. This could have majorly undermined the entire voting process. Every single mail in ballot needs to be counted.

"...election mail is to be processed as first-class mail even without first-class postage. " This should also be rigorously audited and reinforced.
