GOP sues over late ballots

DETROIT (AP) — The Republican Party is suing to try to overturn a decision that lets Michigan count absentee ballots up to 14 days after the Nov. 3 election.

The state and national GOP said existing law, which cuts off absentee ballots when polls close on Election Day, should be honored.

A judge, citing chronic mail delays because of the coronavirus, last week said ballots postmarked by Nov. 2 can be counted if received within 14 days of the election.
