Absentee ballot anxiety hits American expats voting abroad amid a pandemic and changes at USPS

MEDELLÍN, Colombia – Panicked calls from overseas voters usually come in November, just two or three days before the election, says Susan Dzieduszycka-Suinat, founder of the nonpartisan Overseas Vote Foundation.

This year, a wave came in August, a crush of voters asking: Where is my ballot? How can I vote from abroad? How can I do it without the U.S. Postal Service?

“It’s indicative of what I would call, simply, voter hysteria,” the leader of the voting rights organization said. “They're just seeing red. They're seeing the horror, they're hearing the headlines, and they're panicking.”

The headlines being the quagmire involving the U.S. Postal Service.

1. Depends on your state/county I guess

but when I lived overseas L.A. County faxed me a ballot, which I faxed back to them. You can also drop off your ballot at the nearest US Embassy or Consulate and it will be returned that way.

2. Also about our servicemen and women who have to use mail-in ballots.

Trump complains about fraud in the system.

What has he done to protect the the integrity of the vote for the military people who he calls 'losers and suckers'?

3. Dallas County has always been very good about getting me my ballots on time.

Since they don't go through ten different compromised post offices in the USA before getting here, I have to assume that once they leave the voting office, they go right to the airport, and out of DeJoy's sticky hands.
