Federal Courts Halt Trump Campaign Efforts to Thwart Mail-In Voting

HeadlineOct 01, 2020

Voting rights activists are hailing two new victories in the courts. A federal court has rejected an effort by the Trump campaign to block an expansion of mail-in voting in Montana. Judge Dana Christensen said it is a “fiction” that Montana will fall prey to widespread voter fraud. Meanwhile, in Wisconsin, a federal appeals court has reinstated a six-day extension for counting absentee ballots in November.

In other voting news, the New York City Board of Elections has announced plans to resend absentee ballots to nearly 100,000 voters after a printing error led to the distribution of defective ballots.
