ACLU asking Del. judge to mandate counting of mail-in ballots past deadline

DOVER, Del. – A Delaware judge is scheduled to hear arguments in a lawsuit asking to force elections officials to count absentee and mail-in ballots received after the November 3rd deadline.

We’re told 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 the vote-by-mail law be received by the time polls close at 8 p.m. on Election Day.

The ACLU wants ballots received up to 10 days after Election Day counted if they were mailed on or before Election Day.
