Lost in the mail

You can't make this stuff up.
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."
I usually discount lost-in-the-mail stories, but, if this is true, perhaps a lot more mail is getting lost than anyone thought.
