Judges Rule on Last-Minute Voting Challenges Days Ahead of Midterms

HeadlineNov 07, 2022

Early voters have already cast nearly 40 million ballots, breaking midterm records. In Pennsylvania, the NAACP and other groups sued state election officials Friday after Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court said mail-in ballots that don’t have a written date on their outer envelope should not be counted.

In Missouri, a judge has blocked a new law that seeks to restrict get-out-the-vote initiatives by local groups. The law would disproportionately affect Democratic and Black voters.

In Atlanta, Georgia, voters in Cobb County filed a lawsuit Sunday after election officials failed to send out over 1,000 requested mail ballots. The ACLU is demanding an extended deadline of November 14 to count those votes. The ACLU also condemned a recent Georgia law which shortened the period voters can request and return mail-in ballots.
