Federal Judge Requires New York State to Count Previous Invalid Mail-in Ballots

A federal judge has ordered New York State election officials to count previously mailed-in ballots that arrived after the June 23rd primary or mail-in votes with a declared invalid postmark. 

Because of the dangers, the coronavirus imposed on in-person voting, New York State allowed voters to use mail-in ballots. Many of the ballots, however, arrived after the initial date because the postal service did not deliver in time. Others had their votes disqualified because they did not have a postmark.  

The judge’s order requires the New York City Board of Elections to count all absentee ballots cast in the June 23 Primary, which were received by June 24, or received by June 25, as long as votes are not postmarked later than June 23.
