"The postal service was not generated to create profits or revenue," he said, adding, "it was created to be a service for the American people."

Young said forcing people to stand in lines at the polls is not safe.

"The Postmaster General needs to be transparent with the public about management decisions being made that are resulting in these delays," Young added.

In order to make it easier for residents to cast their vote via mail-in ballot, Young is adding a button to the city's website so that people can complete the application.
