Voters in North Carolina have received absentee ballot request forms in the mail with Trump's face on them

CNN)Given the crisis facing the United States Postal Service before a presidential election, the last thing John Herter expected to receive in the mail Saturday was an absentee ballot request form with President Donald Trump's face on it.

"Is this a joke?" Herter said his wife told him as she opened up the mailer to reveal a photo of Trump grinning underneath the words, "Are you going to let the Democrats silence you? Act now to stand with President Trump."

Herter, of Lincoln County is among a group of voters in North Carolina to receive the mailer over the past few days after Trump said that he opposed crucial USPS funding because he doesn't want to see it used for mail-in voting this November.

During an interview on Fox News last week, Trump said that if USPS does not receive the additional $25 billion funding request that Democrats included in the ongoing stimulus negotiations, then he believes the Post Office won't be able to handle the influx of mail-in ballots in the upcoming election.

Trump's trying to cheat to win the election is nothing new, it's what he was impeached for. We are officially a non-democracy. Not only is Trump's photo on the form, there's a political message on it.

If I got a ballot like that my first impulse would be to bring out the sharpie and make his face look better.

All states have laws restricting campaigning within certain distance of the entrance or exit to a polling place on Election Day.

I think someone is in violation here.

I've already sent for my ballot using the form from vote.org. Two days ago I received a ballot request form from the State of Texas. I just checked, there's no ugly trump mug on there.

Given your political persuasion, if I were you, I wouldn't use such a ballot.

I'm taking no chances with my vote, I'd rather risk Covid-19. I plan to be one of the first people on election day to cast my ballot in person.

I've received election propaganda that looks like official stuff from both parties over the years. This is nothing new.

Your acceptance of the Trump administration potentially in violation of the law by putting his own image and campaign efforts on the ballot itself is noted.
