Michigan court stops 2-week absentee ballot extension

DETROIT (AP) — Absentee ballots must arrive by Nov. 3 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.

The appeals court, in a 3-0 opinion, said any changes must rest with the Legislature, not the judiciary.

Absentee ballot extensions ordered by judges in Wisconsin and Indiana have also been overturned by higher courts.

Michigan law says absentee ballots must be turned in by election night to be valid. But Court of Claims Judge Cynthia Stephens had ordered that any ballots postmarked by Nov. 2 could be counted if they arrived within two weeks after the Nov. 3 election.

this isn't as bad as shutting down ballot deposit boxes like abbot did in texas.  that was straight up voter suppression.

but cheering for this is pretty shitty man given the fear in the public..

It's not saying you can't vote. 

It's just saying you have to vote by election day. 

Like every other election in our lifetimes. 

If you want your voice heard, show up and make it heard. Don't sit around and wait for someone to come pick your ballot up and deliver it for you.

I agree but this is saying you have to vote early and mail it in to arrive before the 3rd. I agree you need to vote at the same time as everyone else.

No I am upset that votes are not going to be counted on both sides. Everyone should be guaranteed the right to vote

I remwmber you saying we should protect at risk groups and opening the economy up and no mask and if you are scared you can stay in. Now you are saying you are against people staying in and voting. Make up your mind.

They will get counted as long as they arrive by November 3rd. There's no excuse for not getting your vote out by then

Depends on the USPS and they refuse to add tyebstaff to do the job correctly, if they did I would not have such an issue with this. When they say we have delays and won’t fix it and remove sorting machines and ban all overtime for an election I do. I don’t think I am being unreasonable. If they said all had to be mailed by the 31st or 1st and we guarantee delivery by the 3rd and if it is our fault they are late we count them anyway it’s ok for me…what about you?

What if they mail it on the 27th and the USPS takes 10 days when they should take 5 days? Do you still count it?

They only have to walk to their mail box or drive to any drop box. Both are safer than going grocery shopping
