On Friday, Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics in Charlottesville flagged that he still has not received his mail ballot ahead of the closely-watched gubernatorial election this November between Democratic former Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Republican businessman Glenn Youngkin.

According to Sabato, who tagged Sens. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine in his complaint, his postal worker quit after a "supervisor's verbal abuse" last month, and has not been replaced, leaving the status of his ballot in apparent limbo.

President Joe Biden overwhelmingly carried this area of Virginia. The independent city of Charlottesville voted for him by 73 points, while surrounding Albemarle County backed him 2 to 1.

This comes as the Postal Service begins instituting Trump-era Postmaster General Louis DeJoy's controversial reform plan, which slows down certain mail deliveries and temporarily increases the cost of postage.
