One third of Albemarle ballots ‘sitting unscanned in USPS facilities’ according to lawsuit

About 33.9% of Albemarle County ballots have not yet been scanned by the United States Postal Service as of Monday, according to data from the Virginia Department of Elections, but it’s unclear what effect this could have on the Nov. 2 election.

Yet the Democratic Party of Virginia is concerned and has filed a lawsuit against the USPS for failure to timely process and deliver election-related mail, which it says is “threatening to disenfranchise thousands of Virginia voters.” Data from the state was brought to light as part of the lawsuit.

But it’s unclear how accurate the data is, as local registrars are reporting different numbers of total ballots sent, and the company collecting the data already notes potential scanning issues with USPS. The U.S. Postal Service has denied having any sitting ballots.

About 33.9% of Albemarle County ballots have not yet been scanned by the United States Postal Service as of Monday. Do they have “delivery confirmation”? I don’t understand why they would be scanned.

Some lazy managers won’t take the mail to the plant at the end of the day if dispatch is already passed. So what do you think they do with the outgoing mail? THEY HIDE IT!
But having ballots still sitting in post office sounds intentional to me.
