US Mail

In case anyone has to determine how long mail takes to get here from the US, I just received a letter postmarked in FL on 2 Sept and stamped at the Chapala post office on 22 October. This is a little longer than usual but not unusual.

anywhere from 10 days (including weekends) to 20 days. (once it was a week but not common). if its registered you can track it on the computer. theres no pattern except after december thru mid jan. it can get stuck in mex city PO or airport.

RE: voting: if you have not received your ballot by now, you better vote online. I did this via instructions from Democrats Abroad, but you can go straight to your state's voting website on your own and do it.

We have a check mailed here every month an although it has always eventually arrived it can take between 3 and 11 weeks.

I just received a USPS certified letter which took 3 weeks.  I am going to check to see if the verification papers are actually returned to them and how long it takes from the day I signed to when they received them.  I signed last Tuesday and this Tuesday I will begin hounding the woman because she just does not believe that it can take so long to get mail and that the mail can get lost regularly and that her refusal to send the checks via FedX or DHL is sniggly.

 

We get Amazon packages via Amazon US in about a week.  Ebay packages take longer unless I specify the carrier.  Make sure your closest cross streets are part of your address.
