CNN reports that voters in North Carolina received a notice to request an absentee ballot, adorned with Trump’s photograph and a political message.

Given the crisis facing the United States Postal Service before a presidential election, the last thing John Herter expected to receive in the mail Saturday was an absentee ballot request form with President Donald Trump’s face on it.

“Is this a joke?” Herter said his wife told him as she opened up the mailer to reveal a photo of Trump grinning underneath the words, “Are you going to let the Democrats silence you? Act now to stand with President Trump.”
Herter, of Lincoln County is among a group of voters in North Carolina to receive the mailer over the past few days after Trump said that he opposed crucial USPS funding because he doesn’t want to see it used for mail-in voting this November.

Voters were understandably confused. Trump said mail-in voting is bad, but absentee voting by mail is good.

More consequentially, this kind of electioneering must be illegal. It’s illegal to post campaign signs near a polling place. It must also be illegal to post political messages on official government communications.
