Voters in North Carolina have received absentee ballot request forms in the mail with Donald Trump's face on them
Given the crisis facing the United States Postal Service before a presidential election, the last thing John Herter expected to receive in the mail Saturday was an absentee ballot request form with President Donald Trump's face on it.

"Is this a joke?" Herter said his wife told him as she opened up the mailer to reveal a photo of Trump grinning underneath the words, "Are you going to let the Democrats silence you? Act now to stand with President Trump."
Herter, of Lincoln County is among a group of voters in North Carolina to receive the mailer over the past few days after Trump said that he opposed crucial USPS funding because he doesn't want to see it used for mail-in voting this November.

Chandler Carranza, of Gaston County, North Carolina, said he laughed after receiving the absentee ballot request mailer on Thursday.

"The irony is very thick and definitely not lost on me. Trump has been saying mail-in ballots will bring fraud to the election but absentee ballots are legit. Which is it? It can't be both ways. I laughed because if the campaign actually took information from other times they have reached out to me, they'd know I won't vote for Trump despite being a registered Republican."

The mailer was sent out by the North Carolina Republican Party, press secretary Tim Wigginton said.

It's not an official one from the state. Looks like the Trump campaign scanned a ballot request form and attached political ads that the person would tear off. Then the ballot would just be like on issued after the tear off. The person would keep or throw away the political ad portion.

I'm not of fan of any politician doing this. It's confusing and seems unethical.
