After all, Inauguration Day means the final end of the 2020 presidential election, and no one is happier about that than the hardworking mailboxes of the postal service.

Bogad speaks for mailboxes everywhere, which played a much bigger role than usual during an election mid-pandemic. Former President Donald Trump and others cast doubt on mail-in voting, linking it to voter fraud without evidence.
"The mailboxes have come to life to set the record straight," said Bogad.
