Millions of mail ballots have not been returned as window closes for Postal Service delivery

Amid a record surge in early voting, millions of mail ballots remained unreturned Wednesday, prompting a flurry of warnings from election officials that ballots sent via the U.S. Postal Service at this point may not arrive in time to be counted.
With Election Day less than a week away, more than 42 million out of the 92 million mail ballots requested by voters nationally had not yet been returned as of Wednesday afternoon, according to data from the U.S. Elections Project, a nonpartisan site tracking early voting.
In the 20 states where party affiliation data was available, more than 11 million of the outstanding ballots had been requested by Democrats, nearly 8 million by Republicans and about 10 million by unaffiliated voters, according to the Elections Project.

Maybe these millions of people are the same idiots that jam the P.O. on tax day. I think they will all come at once, just like a tsunami and the P.O. will crash and burn. Maybe the millions who have not returned their ballots simply decided to vote in person instead. Maybe somebody took them or they just disappeared. I like the tsunami story but since they handled 1.3 Billion cards and letters at Christmas, the P.O. won’t crash.
