State Settles on Special Election -- Overseas Votes Get 6 More Days
In response to U.S. Department of Justice action, the state board of elections has agreed to count absentee ballots that come in through April 13. They were going to stop on April 7, but then DOJ began questioning the length of time New York had given offshore voters (including those serving in the military) to get theirs in. This figures to be a close election, so the absentee ballots may be very important -- don't plan on waiting up late on March 31 for a result.
