#DemCast #DemCastWI @GovEvers @SenatorBaldwin Wisconsin Voters: if you can, take your #AbsenteeBallot to the post office & request a date-stamp. Today, I went to a local small-town #USPS, and at first they refused!

If voting extension upheld, state and Postal Service seeking to ensure ballots are postmarked
WEC doesn't have data on how many absentee ballot envelopes were received without postmarks after the April 7 election.https://madison.com/wsj/news/local/govt-and-politics/if-voting-extension-upheld-state-and-postal-service-seeking-to-ensure-ballots-are-postmarked/article_f34a1297-4f49-5273-91ce-ae9a3d8e89e1.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter&utm_campaign=user-share
The postal clerk (who was ALSO ignoring the state #MaskOrder along with her co-worker) at first told me “She was told they did NOT have to date stamp ballots.” I pointed out to her that I had affixed two stamps OF MY OWN to the prepaid envelope, and again requested she stamp it
I remained polite but insistent, saying that because MY OWN stamps were on there, I would like a post mark on my ballot. She finally said she would call their main postmaster in #Mauston, #WI—who told her she HAD to postmark my ballot. She did so, and I took a picture of it
I told her I wanted a picture in case something went wrong “at my local polling place.” But I really took the pics as proof that I had given them to her. If she would have continued to refuse, I would have taken my ballot to another post office or directly to my clerk,
PLEASE SHARE THIS THREAD: #DemCast #DemCastWI: As the postal clerk’s entire attitude toward postmarking my ballot was worrisome (and I felt it may have even been PARTISAN), I’ll be concerned until I can be sure my local village clerk received my ballot via https://myvote.wi.gov/en-US/TrackMyBallot
As an aside, I was the only customer in the #PostOffice. There was no line behind me nor time crunch—it was midday, and these two illegally #maskless workers in a #USPS office weren’t refusing to postmark my #ballot due to being overly BUSY—they were just standing there talking.
