U.S. (ECWd) –
Fourteen states filed a Motion for Preliminary Injunction against US President Donald Trump and the Director of the US Postal Service. The filing was in the US District Court, Eastern District of Washington on August 18, 2020. The court granted a nation-wide Preliminary Injunction today.
“Plaintiffs assert the changes to the Postal Service operations threaten to disrupt the successful use of mail in balloting. States are reporting increased anxiety on the part of voters who have expressed concern that their mail-in ballots will not be delivered on time or at all. Officials in some states are concerned that voters may choose to vote in-person thereby increasing the risk of COVID-19 transmission at the voting centers.”
