A federal judge has ordered the U.S. Postal Service to sweep processing facilities in key battleground states for any mail-in ballots.
Inspectors were given a tight deadline to make sure no ballots were left behind and that any remaining ballots are immediately sent out for delivery.
The judge ordered sweeps in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Texas, Florida and Arizona.
Aside from Pennsylvania and Texas, each of those states requires ballots to be in when the polls close on Election Day.
