Virginia Democratic Party Sues Postal Service Over Delays In Delivering Election Materials

The Democratic Party of Virginia filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) on Friday over delivery delays of election-related mail that may potentially disenfranchise Virginia voters.

The lawsuit comes on the state's deadline for voters to file an absentee ballot application. According to the complaint, there are currently thousands of absentee ballots at USPS facilities across the state that have been unprocessed for weeks. With Election Day less than two weeks away, the Virginia Democratic Party hopes a judge will force the postal service to prioritize voter mail and expedite its process.
