USPS specifies processing scores as, “the time in between its first and last processing operations.” A higher rating indicates that a higher portion of tallies are taking a trip through the system on-time, as expected.

According to the data, outgoing ballots– heading to voters– are seeing a drop in their on-time processing across the country. On Tuesday, USPS reported the processing score is at 88.95%, down from 95.20% on Monday and 94.07%on

Friday. Inbound tallies– heading to election authorities– have actually seen an uptick in its nationwide on-time processing rating. On Tuesday, USPS reported they were at 95.05%, up from 93.39% on Monday and 94.73% from Friday.

Although the dataset is the most exact indicator available for tracking the motion of tallies within the USPS system, the Postal Service warns in its court filing that the information doesn't supply the complete image. That's because not all tallies use the smart mail barcodes that helps track tallies.

More information: The on-time processing rating for first-rate mail, which election mail is delivered at, dropped significantly– 18.75%– on Tuesday. The processing score was at 88.56% on Monday and 86.17% on Friday.

The USPS argued that the data is not a sign of its on-time delivery efficiency though, stating, “does not produce precise, dependable information, as it is incomplete, subject to alter, and in general, is not an accurate representation of the Postal Service's efficiency.”
