The Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected an attempt by conservatives to shorten North Carolina's deadline for mail-in ballots from nine to three days.
The big picture: This is the latest of a series of decisions over mail-in ballot deadlines in various states.
- The decision comes two days after the court rejected an effort by Wisconsin Democrats and civil rights groups to extend that state's deadline for counting absentee ballots to six days post-Election Day.
Of note: Justices Neil Gorsuch, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito dissented the latest ruling in a 5-3 vote.
