(WASHINGTON) – Today, Friday, August 28th, the Committee on Homeland Security, chaired by Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), will hold a hearing to discuss election integrity issues facing voters and election officials in the 2020 election, and identify actions that Federal, state, and local officials can undertake now to ensure the integrity of elections in November.  

The hearing will also include discussions of the role the United States Postal Service (USPS) plays in the delivery of mail ballots and how changes made by USPS management have raised alarms about whether it is being undermined and weaponized for political purposes.
