Vote by Mail (also known as Ballot Mail) has received increased attention as states and localities wrestle with running an election in the year of COVID-19.

While some companies specialize in ballot mail, an increase in demand is expected, which may require new companies to enter this segment.

Mail service providers capable of processing printing and inserting mail utilizing high integrity methods, such as reading and matching barcodes or printing variable envelopes using mail run data files, are the best-equipped to convert their operations to meet any demand surge for ballot mail.

The Association for PRINT Technologies has engaged with a range of stakeholders, including election officials, technology providers, policy makers, and service providers, to fashion a  coordinated industry response in order to educate and inform mail service providers about the ballot mail segment.
