- The U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday failed to meet deadline set by U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan on Election Day to conduct a sweep of some of its facilities in key battleground states for remaining mail-in ballots and to rush delivery.
- Sullivan also ordered the USPS on Sunday to send reminders to managers that they must follow the “extraordinary measures” policy and use express mail to speed up ballot delivery ahead of Election Day. He ordered sweeps in the battleground States Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Texas, Arizona and Florida.
- “Given the time constraints set by this Court’s order, and the fact that Postal Inspectors operate on a nationwide basis, Defendants were unable to accelerate the daily review process to run from 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. without significantly delaying preexisting activities on the day of the election,” the USPS wrote.
