Election and Political Mail Readiness

Election season arrives like clockwork. Every four years, a general election. Every two years, a midterm election.

Election mail is a mailpiece that an authorized election official creates for voters participating in the election process, while political mail is mail used for political campaign purposes.

They also have expensive ongoing operating costs that exceed the vehicles’ value.
