The United States Postal Service collects the business reply envelopes delivered to post office boxes designated for the ballots, and transfers each day’s collection to MRG.  MRG does not rely on the figures provided by the United States Postal Service to determine the number of actual ballots members return.  Rather, MRG will examine and count each ballot package received individually before determining individual voter eligibility and beginning the vote count.  Eligibility testing will commence on February 21, 2023, and the vote count will commence on March 1, 2023. The number of votes tallied may be different from the number of business reply envelopes reported received by the U.S. Postal Service.
