Surveillance video captures Houston-area USPS letter carrier allegedly dumping voter registration cards

UPDATE: An email received Sunday, Feb. 6 contained the following response from USPS Senior Public Relations Representative, Martha Johnson:

“The United States Postal Service is committed to fulfilling its role in the electoral process as a secure, efficient and effective way for citizens to participate when policymakers decide to use mail as part of their elections. The Postal Service has a robust and tested process for proper handling and timely delivery of Election Mail.Regarding video and photos of a purported postal truck in the Houston area, we are aware of the social media post and are reviewing it carefully. We have referred this to the USPS Office of the Inspector General will have no further comment until that review is complete.”

A neighborhood home surveillance camera caught what appeared to be a USPS Letter Carrier dumping a stack of Texas voter registration cards in the garbage on Thursday.

“It doesn’t matter what party you’re inclined to, we all have rights. We have voices that have to be heard,” neighbor Ely Munoz said.

Munoz was out collecting her garbage can when she noticed the cards inside the bin. She counted 38 cards that were undelivered to her neighbors in Crosby.

She posted her home video on several social media sites, hoping to bring awareness to what she had just found.

A supervisor from the Crosby Post Office picked up the cards Friday, but would not respond to questions from KPRC 2 Investigates about the incident.

Calls to the USPS Postal Inspector went unanswered Friday.
