Michigan Court Stops 14-Day Absentee Ballot Extension

A Michigan court overturned an extension that allowed absentee ballots to be received two weeks after Election Day, ruling that the votes must instead be received by 8 p.m. on Nov. 3. 

Absentee ballots must arrive by Election Day to be counted, the Michigan Court of Appeals said Friday, blocking a 14-day extension that had been ordered by a lower court and embraced by key Democratic officials in a battleground state.

The ruling echoes similar decisions that blocked absentee ballot extensions in Indiana and Wisconsin.
