The U.S. Postal Service, under Democratic fire on its readiness for mail-in voting, says there are big problems on the other end, too.
Some local election boards count ballots using outdated procedures as the country prepares for its first mass-mail voting.
These boards opted to use excess envelopes, minus bar codes, making it impossible to track the ballot applications or ballots, the U.S. Postal Service inspector general says in a new report this week.
The IG said that in 2018, 31 million ballots were cast by mail. Only 4 million (13 percent) used mail tracking technology.
