Late Ballots Will Not be Counted

A federal judge ruled Monday against the counting of absentee ballots received after the November 4 deadline.

As a result, the election community will continue the certification process as scheduled for the November 4 general election.

A lawsuit filed by McCain-Palin 2008, Inc. claimed that absentee ballots were not distributed in time to allow overseas citizens and members of the military to return their voted ballot by November 4.

McCain-Palin 2008, Inc. sought to force the counting of absentee ballots received up to November 14, extending the November 4 deadline.

As scheduled, the State Board of Elections plans to certify the general election results on November 24 at 10 a.m.
