A federal appeals court blocked Minnesota Democrats from extending the state’s mail-in ballot deadline past Election Day, handing state Republicans a major legal victory.
In a 2-1 ruling, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that mail-in ballots in Minnesota must be received by Nov. 3 in order to be counted. The court ruled that Minnesota secretary of state Steve Simon violated the Constitution when he attempted to extend “the deadline for receipt of ballots without legislative authorization.”
The county elections director says an unknown number of mail-in ballots were lost by the U.S. Postal Service.
This has been a source of confusion, not just for voters, but for county commissioners overseeing the election.

The Supreme Court has rejected Donald Trump’s bid to prevent absentee ballots in North Carolina from being counted up to nine days after the election.
The Trump campaign, RNC and local Republicans had been fighting a lower court-approved extension of the deadline for receiving mail-in ballots to November 12 – provided they were postmarked by election day.
A judge in Virginia ruled Wednesday that the state cannot count ballots that arrive after Election Day and do not contain a postmark.
Judge William W. Eldridge IV said the state can, though, accept ballots with illegible postmarks for up to three days as long as the voter’s oath was signed and dated before the election.
Now, the entire city of Chicago will become one, gigantic speed trap. Mayor Lori Lightfoot is going to rig traffic cameras to automatically issue tickets for residents going just 6 MPH over the posted speed limit.
