Political Mail: Red Tag 57
Like Email, political mail can be scheduled for delivery on the date that you want when it is processed as “red tag” mail. Red tag political mail is mail that receives special expedited handling by the USPS. The bulks of mail receive a red tag on the container, tray, or another form of storage, causing it to be treated as First Class mail. This cuts down processing time, allowing you to get mail delivered on your schedule.
There is a specific way in which a mail house should do the job in order for your political mail to be identified and documented when presented at the main Phoenix Post Office acceptance unit prior to entry into processing and distribution. One of those things is to attach a special red tag to each pre-sorted mail tray. Using a red Tag 57, Political Campaign Mailing, aids in the identification of political campaign mailings.
First-Class Mail and Standard Mail entered by a registered political candidate, campaign committee or committee of a political party can be identified by using Tag 57 on the mailing containers. Use of Tag 57 with eligible campaign mailings is optional.
Mailings made by organizations other than those listed above, even if promoting or endorsing political candidates, referendums and so forth, are not classified as political campaign mailings and cannot use Tag 57.
