Cher attends the UK Premiere of "Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again" at Eventim Apollo on July 16, 2018 in London.

Cher's mission to save the Post Office isn't going as planned.

Over the last week, the pop star has been actively posting about the United States Postal Service, from its genesis by first postmaster general Benjamin Franklin in 1775 to its resource in the 2020 presidential election. Celebrities have been encouraging their U.S. citizen fanbase to vote by mail ahead of the Nov. 3 date to avoid coronavirus potentially spreading at polling places.

But with President Donald Trump's refusal to provide the $25 billion financial aid to the current USPS crisis, as delayed deliveries could present a major interference with mail-in ballots, people have been buying stamps and sending letters to loved ones to boost the system. But Cher has another hands-on approach she wanted to exercise.

"Can ppl volunteer at post office!?" she asked her 3.8 million Twitter followers Wednesday (Aug. 19) before detailing her struggle over the phone. "OK,Called 2 post offices In Malibu.They were polite. I Said'Hi This Is Cher,& I Would like to know If you ever take VolunteersLady Said She Didn’t Know & Gave Me # Of Supervisor.I Called & Said Hi This is Cher Do U Accept volunteers.'NO,Need Fingerprints & Background Check.'

Many stunned fans have been replying to her with other suggestions, from donating mail sorters to registering as a poll worker to even designing a stamp collection.
