An Epoch Times reporter tweeted a video showing UPS workers loading boxes of what the reporter says are absentee ballots from a loading dock in Georgia at the Secretary of State's warehouse.

Epoch Times journalist Ivan Pentchoukov recorded footage of what he says is official election material being handled by UPS employees and loaded onto UPS trucks.

Pentchoukov's tweet read, "Is @UPS supposed to carry official election material? Because I and three #DominionWatch volunteers saw a UPS truck picking up a ballet of boxes marked "official absentee" from the Secretary of State's warehouse."

Both UPS and FedEX say they are not legally allowed to handle or deliver mail-in ballots, and that only the USPS has the lawful postmarking status to do so, Reuters reports.

"State ballots must be postmarked to be considered valid and only the USPS has lawful postmarking status. Therefore UPS, FedEx and other private parties cannot technically be involved in shipping ballots," UPS said in a statement.

FedEx echoed a similar message.

"FedEx does accept individual ballots, and we advise that customers planning to return their ballots via FedEx should closely review their state’s guidelines on absentee voting and deadlines for ballots or related election documents," FedEx said, Reuters reports.

The Post Millennial reached out to UPS for a comment or explanation pertaining to the contents of Pentchoukov's video, but they did not respond by time of publication.
