DOVER, Del. (AP) — A Delaware judge is hearing arguments in a lawsuit asking him to force elections officials to count absentee and mail-in ballots received after the state-mandated deadline in November’s election.
Tuesday’s hearing involves a complaint filed by the ACLU on behalf of the League of Women Voters.
Delaware requires that absentee ballots and ballots cast under a universal vote-by-mail law enacted for this year’s elections because of the coronavirus be received by the time polls close at 8 p.m.
The ACLU wants ballots received up to 10 days after Election Day counted if they were mailed on or before Election Day.
