Postal workers in Tacoma and Wenatchee reinstalled machines for high-speed mail sorting that were dismantled after orders from the head of maintenance of USPS.

The orders have led to widespread fear that the USPS could not handle the millions of mail-in ballots expected during the November election.

According to an NPR report, 40 percent of the high-speed sorting

machines in the Seattle-Tacoma are were already dismantled and

disconnected.
