    Was it DHL? In such cases are the Customs officers who make the most delay/problems.

    Covid-19 may also have some indirectly shares in the delays.

    I mailed in my first election ballot in years - registered. According to the Russian Postal Service tracking number, it was handed over to the USPS within one week.

    if you send something over there, even if it is not THAT important, do it with Express post, DHL,Federal Express or the likes. yo ucan then check on the Internet via your tracking time WHERE the letter has been for how long and who held it up.( customs, long weekend, strikes).maybe things have changed now, i used DHL a long time ago.and with a tracking system i got a read out where, when and how long the parcel was floating through space and time...

    I used to have solid faith in the USPS, and none in the Russian system. That is beginning to change. I’m not sure my ballot won’t be dumped in the trash...

    A Trump vote has a high probability of landing in a dumpster.

    Due to the coronavirus environment, the post office does not work very well. The number of flights is limited, so the post office also works. It is only annoying that for almost a year of this viral infection, the situation has not improved. As the mess began, it will never end.
