USPS Warns PA: Some Ballots May Arrive Too Late

NBC News reports:

The U.S. Postal Service says it’s unlikely there will be enough time to request, complete and return mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania to be counted for the Nov. 3 presidential election.

Thomas J. Marshall, general counsel and executive vice president of the agency warned in a July 29 letter to State Secretary Kathy Boockvar of “a risk that ballots requested near the deadline under state law will not be returned by mail in time to be counted under your laws as we understand them.”

The letter was revealed Thursday in a filing that’s part of an ongoing lawsuit by a group of Pennsylvania voters who want state officials to extend the counting deadline beyond Election Day as a result of anticipated U.S. Postal Service delays for mail-in ballots.
