LEE COUNTY, Fla. - The US Postal Service may have fixed the absentee ballot envelope problem, but for now, all envelopes are being sorted by hand.

The envelope barcodes were not being recognized by the sorting machine and being sent back to the return address.

Post Office officials are in the process of redesigning the problem envelopes before the November election.
