Federal judge grants temporary restraining order to prevent USPS from sending election mailers with

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)A federal judge has temporarily barred the US Postal Service from sending mailers containing what Colorado's top election official calls "false statements" that may discourage voters from participating in the November election, according to court documents filed Saturday evening.

Unless extended by the court, the temporary restraining order remains in effect through September 22, the filings shows.

"Temporary restraining order granted. The USPS must stop sending misinformation to Colorado voters," Jena Griswold, Colorado's secretary of state, tweeted Saturday evening. Griswold, a Democrat, filed a lawsuit on Saturday seeking a temporary restraining order to stop delivery of mailers that have yet to be delivered.

The mailings have already gone out. You can't unring that bell.

4. Colorado will need

To do PSA’s and maybe even send out info to voters.

but, I imagine some are just throwing the misinformation in the trash.

I got the postcard already and I am just going by the postcard I got from the state, on the same day!!

New York is getting the word out very nicely.

Really happy about our state right now, even though our taxes are high.

We have done a great job with COVID and voting is going to be a piece of cake.

5. I think most of us in Colorado know how to vote in Colorado in spite of the mobster's machinations.

I hope new voters are not misled, though.
