Political mail

Ohio's Ledger Independent reports that political mail has reached a ‘phenomenal’ level.

According to staff writer Misty Maynard, "Friday alone, more than 5.2 million political mailings were sent out of the Cincinnati district of the United States Postal Service."

Described as a "phenomenal amount of mail" by Bonni Manies, the manager of consumer affairs for the USPS, this year's political mail is more than twice in volume than the political mailings of the last major election.

"Processing the amount of political mail that goes through the system daily is both a blessing and a curse. Manies said the mailings do put more money into the system. However, it has made the jobs of many workers more difficult."
