On this Election Day, I am writing to remind you about the importance of voting today. The future of the Postal Service is at a pivotal crossroad, and its direction will be determined by the next Congress. One direction preserves and protects services, networks and letter carrier jobs; in the other direction lies continued attacks on all of those things. There is a lot on the line for letter carriers tomorrow, and the election’s outcome will provide us with some insight about what we can expect from the incoming 114th Congress.
To assist you in making your decision at the ballot box today, we have done some research and put together an NALC Voter Guide to candidates who best support letter carriers’ interests.

Finally, I want to thank you for all that you do to help your union elect candidates who support letter carriers and working families. You and thousands of your brothers and sisters have done outstanding work, spending hours of free time knocking on doors, making phone calls and talking directly with members of Congress and candidates, all to ensure that letter carriers continue to have a strong voice in Washington. However, our work isn’t over just yet. We must bring this election home today and work to elect candidates who support us.
So vote today as if your job depends on it—because it just might. You’ll also be doing your part to help protect working families.
And remind your fellow carriers, your family members and your and friends to vote, too.
Fred Rolando, President
National Association of Letter Carriers
