The Postal Service said in a statement that it understands not every state requires voters to request ballots to vote by mail. The Maryland State Board of Elections advises the best time to vote in person is on weekends during early voting and between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Election Day. "Our mailer was meant to be general all-purpose guidance on the use of the mail, and not guidance on state rules", USPS said through a spokesperson.
In a Thursday morning tweet, Trump reiterated his baseless, exhausted claim that voting-by-mail leads to mass voter fraud, which he suggested will cause an inaccurate count of the results in the November election.

"We've already seen a 12-fold increase in the number of people who have requested their ballots", Gelms said.
What if my mailbox was destroyed? If a jurisdiction doesn't have that option, voters can call their local elections office and ask if their ballot has been received. But earlier this month, in the battleground state of North Carolina, Trump suggested that voters both mail their ballots and show up at the polls on Election Day. This is progress in a year when millions more Americans are expected to cast ballots by mail. The mailing address may differ from their residential address. "I applaud their (the USPS) attempt to get information out there, wish they would work a little more closely with election officials".
