Rallies to support the U.S. Postal Service are being planned across New Jersey for Friday and into the weekend.

The U.S. Postal Service is getting ready to cope with decreased funding and the likelihood of delivering and picking up mail-in ballots for November's upcoming election. There are 6.2 million registered voters in New Jersey.

As of this writing, “Save Our Mail, Save Our Vote” rallies organized by BlueWaveNJ have been organized. Let's take a look at the planned events in Monmouth and Ocean counties.

Friday, August 20 at 12 p.m. a rally is being organized to take place outside the Red Bank Post Office on Broad Street.

On bluewave.org's website it says:

Donald Trump’s attacks and defunding of the postal system are a direct threat to the right to vote and the integrity of the election and even now are delaying Americans from getting the medicine and mail they need. We must act now to stop this attack and protect our election process.

This rally is sponsored by Our Revolution Monmouth County. They say that wearing masks and social distancing will be strictly enforced.

Also, Friday at 12 p.m. a rally is being held at the post office in downtown Toms River. This one sponsored by Our Revolution Ocean County and NJ State Industrial Union Council.

At 2 p.m. on Friday the Hazlet Post Office on Hazlet Avenue will be the site of another rally.

Those interested in attending are being asked to RSVP on BlueWaveNJ's website.
