Appeals court rejects counting Michigan's late ballots [View all]

Source: The Detroit News

Lansing — A Michigan Court of Appeals panel has reversed a lower court ruling that would have required election officials to count late absentee ballots and allowed third parties to collect absentee ballots from voters.

The Court of Claims "abused its discretion" by granting injunctions that allowed for the lifting of those provisions, appellate Judges Thomas Cameron, Mark Boonstra and Michael Gadola ruled in a 3-0 opinion. Court of Claims Judge Cynthia Stephens made the ruling on Sept. 18. 

Cameron, Gadola and Boonstra were appointees of Republican former Gov. Rick Snyder.

The Court of Appeals panel noted the appellate court had already ruled the 8 p.m. Election Day ballot deadline as constitutional in a separate case.

My fellow Michigan voters, if you are voting absentee, either drop off your ballot or mail it in ASAP to make sure it gets there. If it's not in their hands by 8pm Election Day, your vote won't be counted.
