Bakersfield, CA.- The United States Postal Service score for transferring mail-in ballots has dropped in the last week. As a result, a federal judge is trying to improve how fast these ballots are delivered.

The judge ordered the USPS to start mandating 'extraordinary measure's', which includes requiring the postal service to use its express mail shipping for ballots traveling long distances. This means a ballot will now arrived to its destination within one to two days.

For ballots staying local, the USPS is now required to process and deliver them to post office the same day they arrive, or the morning after.
