On Wednesday, the Biden for President team will release a new Snapchat lens encouraging supporters to vote early in key swing states ahead of the US presidential election.

The Biden team will be the first campaign to employ Snapchat’s Marker technology. If users decide to use the lens in selfie mode, they will be covered in aviators and Biden-Harris merchandise, including a T-shirt, hat, and button.

To cope with the recession brought on by the pandemic, many small-business owners have turned to online sales to boost revenue, relying on the U.S. mail to deliver their goods to customers. But that may be in jeopardy as the Postal Service faces financial hardship and finds itself in the middle of a political fight.

Without the USPS services they rely on, some entrepreneurs say they’d be forced to use private shipping companies at much higher rates, and potentially have to pass that cost on to customers.      

The USPS has lost $80 billion since 2007, as Americans abandoned written mail in favor of email and social
