Might wanna rethink that.
I bought a very pricy radio.it was shipped 3 weeks ago.it got lost,tracking shows in transit. Not a dam soul at usps acts like they care.
The person i bought from is getting pissed on via usps also. Sure get a refund but i want my dammed radio.
If they cant get a radio to you how in hell they get votes delivered?
Thats my opinion ,your milage might vary.im not picking demoncrap or republician on this because no matter who you vote for your VOTE COUNTS but not worth crap if lost

Parcel versus first class mail is totally different. Regardless of the stamp put on a voter ballot it is supposed to be treated as first class mail. Shit happens, you know, "it is what it is" but first class has a much better success rate.

Sounds like some of those accusations about safety of the mail system may be self fulfilling. Oddly enough this is happening just before the election. Sounds like Louis Dejoy isn't doing his job........or is he? :whistle:
makes me wonder.but in last 3 years kansas city has been backsliding,they shut down the springfield mo sorting house and directed mail to kansas city. They been goin downhill since then

There is a size and weight limit of 1 pound for First class. Anything over 1 pound or over a certain size has to be shipped ground or Priority mail.
Ive been having a lot of issues with packages but not letter mail.
Ive been voting by mail for over 10 years and never had a problem. Florida allows you to track your ballot and see if it was counted or rejected.
Fixed...

We elected to go to court house early (only one place to vote 35 mile round trip) and vote on Machine.
Mail service here since July, has been totally unpredictable.
Example: Last 6 weeks Saturday Mail delivery we have been stiffed 4 times.
No delivery! At least 5 other times on normal weekdays...No delivery!
We get newspapers delivered via USPS every day, so we know when we get skipped. Utility bills never received, lucky my better half remembers when due.
She has called them to got fees and I drove to office to HAND deliver payments.
We sent birthday card to family member in Chicago, took 11 days to go 290 miles First Class.
The local Postmaster told us...Overtime and staff reductions are still IN effect. Contractor delivery service still must maintain 8 hour shifts on packages, and other mail not listed as Priority Delivery.
I ordered some parts for amplifier I was working on, Paid $8.00 extra for 2 Day Priority Shipping vs First Class...Took 6 days before receipt:mad: to go 400 miles!!!
I had another package that was listed on given date to be delivered. Check tracking morning of delivery, item was listed Out for Delivery.
End of day Friday... No Package...
Suddenly status was changed to PENDING...arrived after the weekend 3 days later!!!

So very obvious the information from Congressional hearing was a SMOKE SCREEN!!!
Nothing out our way has changed.

Thus we elected to make the drive...and shred our mail-in ballots.
I KNOW no politics!!!:love:...but I live in the State where 2 politician's by the name of PENCE are up for reelection:eek: Hmmm! Very Interesting:whistle:
All the Best

That’s some wild stuff!! My mail here in Southern California has been great. Ordered a new antenna from the S.F Bay Area(400 miles or so) and it arrived in 2 days.

I know the media has been saying the mail was slow or slowed in some states but hearing it from actual people confirms it.

Well..whatever the situation or party, just go out and vote.

    Sorry to hear you troubles, he is famous around here for his scams.

  • @ kb9ghn:
    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.
  • @ Toll_Free:
    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
