Navy FPO, USPS™ Collaborate to Track Absentee Ballots

The Navy postal enterprise recently teamed with the U.S. Postal Service and Military Postal Service Agency to provide in-transit visibility for absentee ballots mailed from Navy Fleet Postal Offices (FPOs), said Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) Navy Postal Director Gabe Telles.

“Ballots mailed from Navy FPOs were upgraded to Priority Mail Express™ service paid for by the Department of Defense,” Telles said.

This upgrade provided the customer a tracking number to have visibility of the mailed ballot from the time it left the FPO to the time it arrived at its final destination.

“Navy postal personnel received training, equipment and supplies to facilitate this upgrade and ensure this voting season was the most successful ever,” Telles added.

Thirteen-digit tracking numbers were tracked online at www.usps.gov.
