Tens of thousands of postal ballots have gone missing in the state of Florida, sparking fresh fears of irregularities in the US poll campaign.
The US postal service inspectorate said it was highly unlikely that 58,000 pieces of mail had just disappeared.
A spokesman said inspectors were trying to establish whether the ballots were ever delivered to the postal service.

Anyone willing to guess how many of those missing ballots were for African-Amercans?
Oct. 27, 2004 — The state of California has ordered that 15,000 brand new touch-screen voting machines not be used in next week's presidential election.
These electronic machines were manufactured by Diebold Inc., a North Canton, Ohio-based company that also specializes in automated teller machines and electronic security.
Of course we would have wished the situation would not have happened, but it did," Rapke told ABC News. "There was back up available. But again, with additional familiarity with the system, again, this problem would not have happened."
But a former Diebold technical worker, James Dunn, told ABC News the company was aware of the software and electronic problems before the election, and never reported them.
"The machine would lock up or lose its software load. A very uncommon thing and not a good thing," said Dunn. "And once that machine's locked up you're unable to produce voter cards, which means you're unable to open the election voting machine and people can't vote. But they shipped it anyway."
