Supreme Court Declines to Take North Carolina Ballot Case

The integrity of the election has taken another blow due to two conservative justices crossing over.

The Supreme Court has declined to hear the North Carolina ballot deadline extension case.

Justices Thomas, Alito, and Gorsuch have come forward to say they all would have ruled in favor of granting an application for injunctive relief.

The Decision

The case presented to the Supreme Court was to allow mail-in ballots to be counted for up to nine days after the election.

By declining the case, this means that Americans will now have to wait for almost two weeks before the balloting is closed in North Carolina, a battleground state.

More worrisome is that more states are sure to follow, with this precedent already being set.

In all, there are now 22 states and Washington, D.C. that have granted an extension to ballot counting post-election.

Right now, many states are allowing up to three additional days to receive and count ballots as long as they are postmarked by November 3.

This ruling could encourage far more states to extend, at the very least, up to nine days as North Carolina will now be permitted to do.

This all but ensures we will not have a declared winner on Election Day.
