#NEW
Writing about the election in PA and noting how thousands of ballots were tossed from the June 2 PA primary due to missed deadlines or failure to sign. There're nearly 800k more registered Democrats in PA than GOP--but Dems have lost 136k voters & GOP have gained 165k.
Legally, mail-in ballots cannot be counted before Election Day. It took weeks for all the votes to be counted in the primary and there were far fewer votes than there will be for the general. Gov. Wolf and Sect of State Kathy Bookvar are hoping to overturn that this month.
But the PA state legislature is GOP-led.
Complicating factor: Philadelphia, the blue stronghold of the state with 1.1 registered voters, is among the cities hardest hit by the USPS, with more mail sorting machines removed than in any other city.

#NEW I did some math & wrote a piece about what trouble with the USPS and vote-by-mail actually means in November. The takeaway is that above-average VBM usage & ballot rejection rates could cost Biden 0.6 points in vote margin on average. Thread economist.com/united-states/…
I was particularly irked by some of the less-thought-through analyses on vote-by-mail going around in recent weeks. No, the effects aren't large enough to decrease Biden's vote margin by 4 points except in the most extreme cases of rejection rates and partisan VBM composition.
But focusing on the doomsday scenario probably obscures the danger.

If VBM usage is high & mostly Democratic (polls put the composition of postal ballots at 70-80% Democratic right now), & ballot rejection rates are slightly higher than average, Biden could easily lose 1-2pts.
