US Postal Service Warns Pennsylvania Mail-In Ballots May Not Be Delivered By Deadline

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The U.S. Postal Service has a warning for Pennsylvania election officials. There is a significant risk it won’t be able to deliver all mail-in ballots by the state’s Nov. 3 deadline.

Pennsylvania’s mail-in ballots must be received by 8 p.m. on election day. The warning was revealed in a filing with the State Supreme Court.

Election officials are asking the court to extend the deadline by three days due to the overwhelming demand for mail-in voting.

This comes as President Donald Trump said he is withholding funding for the Postal Service to stop universal mail-in voting.
