Wisconsin and more than a dozen other states Tuesday sued the U.S. Postal Service over mail slowdowns that could hamper delivering absentee ballots this fall, just as the postmaster general backed off on making further changes.
The post office became a political flashpoint over recent weeks as delivery slowed and election clerks braced for an election that will see a surge in absentee voting because of the coronavirus pandemic.
"To pull the rug out from election administrators and voters this close to an election we are arguing infringes on the right to vote," Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul said.
