    Postal Union Election Delayed After Ballots Lost in the Mail

    Irony alert.

    The American Postal Workers Union has extended its internal election after thousands of ballots appeared to have gotten lost . . . in the mail.
    The union's election committee was supposed to be counting those ballots this week in downtown Washington, D.C., following a tradition mail-in election. But the union announced that only about 39,000 ballots were turned in -- and that "a large number of union members had not received their ballots."
    As Federal News Radio first reported, the union has responded by extending the deadline to Oct. 14.
    Workers now have until close of Thursday to ask for a new ballot. It's unclear whether the mail mix-up will become an eleventh-hour campaign issue.
    The union of postal clerks is separate from the National Association of Letter Carriers, which comprises postal workers who deliver the mail.

    Because the mail never stops. It just keeps coming and coming and coming. There's never a letup, It's relentless. Every day it piles up more and more, but the more you get out, the more it keeps coming. And then the bar code reader breaks. And then it's Publisher's Clearinghouse day.

    Story has been out there a while, but goes with the theme.
