"NALC is the union of letter carriers, and our responsibility is to represent people as letter carriers. All members have the right to vote as they please. But for those of you who care most about your job, your standard of living or the future of the Postal Service, we urge you to follow the NALC’s lead and work to elect the candidates we endorse. "
—NALC President Fredric Rolando

In every election season, the NALC must examine every congressional race to decide which candidates will best serve the interests of our members. Throughout this process, NALC President Fredric Rolando reviews the legislative and political records of every potential candidate to be endorsed. The president also relies heavily on the political insight of our state legislative chairs, congressional district liaisons and branch presidents before making his final decision. Our endorsed candidates have proven their support for our members and our issues. We encourage all of our members and their families to support these candidates in November.

Note: There are a few House and Senate races where NALC has elected to not make an endorsement this election cycle.
