A split Iowa Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld a new Republican-backed law that could bar county elections commissioners from mailing absentee ballots to thousands of people who omitted information on their applications.
The 4-3 ruling means that voters who want to cast mail-in ballots in the Nov. 3 election must complete their absentee ballot applications before Saturday’s deadline in order to qualify.
Huge news: The Iowa Supreme Court has rejected another Democrat lawsuit!
The court’s ruling ensures that county election officials confirm the identity of voters applying for absentee ballots, an important safeguard in the process. (1/2) https://t.co/upjTn3HwGA
