American Singer, Taylor Swift has asked her fans to vote early for the upcoming United States Presidential election in November.
The singer took to her Twitter page yesterday commenting on the latest changes by the postal service in the US.
This included the reduction of operating hours and the removal letter collection boxes.
The singer said “Trump’s calculated dismantling of United States Postal Service (USPS) proves one thing clearly.
“He is well aware that we do not want him as our president. He has chosen to blatantly cheat and put millions of Americans lives at risk in an effort to hold on to power”, she added.
This tweet followed an ongoing scrutiny against the federal government and its handling of the US Postal Service because of Trump’s opposition to funding the Postal service because of mail-in voting.
This has fuelled allegations that Trump was manipulating the postal Service for his victory come November.
Singer Taylor Swift noted that the US President, Donald Trump has gravely worsened crisis the US was facing adding that he wants to subvert and destroy America’s right to vote.
“Donald Trump’s ineffective leadership gravely worsened the crisis that we are in and he is now taking advantage of it to subvert and destroy our right to vote and vote safety.
“Request a ballot early, vote early”, she reiterated.
Meanwhile, the Postal Service warned that every State may not get their ballots back to the election offices in time because of election rules.
Adding that, the rules are compatible with the time needed for delivery and return of absentee ballots through the mail.
