Dismantling the Democrat coup, one lawsuit at a time. Slow and steady, I know, but it’s better than bullets, riots, arson….. which is how the Democrats impose their poison.
Michigan Court of Appeals: Ballots Must Arrive by Election Day; 14-Day Extension Overturned
The Michigan Court of Appeals ruled Friday that absentee ballots must arrive by Election Day, November 3, to be counted — overturning a lower court decision that had extended the deadline by 14 days.

DETROIT (AP) — Absentee ballots must arrive by Nov. 3 to be counted, the Michigan Court of Appeals said Friday, blocking a 14-day extension that had been ordered by a lower court and embraced by key Democratic officials.

As Breitbart News reported in September, a lower state court had initially handed down a decision that favored Democrats’ effort to extend the deadline:
Michigan Court of Claims Judge Cynthia Stephens ruled that mail-in ballots postmarked by November 2 — the day before Election Day — will still be counted in Michigan in the 2020 election.
In addition, Judge Stephens said that strangers can return other people’s ballots — normally a felony — between 5:01 p.m. on Friday, October 30, and 8:00 p.m. on November 3, the moment that polling places are supposed to close on Election Day.
However, that decision was overturned in what was reportedly a straight 3-0 decision, with the panel of judges ruling that any changes to election rules must be approved by the state legislature.
The Michigan Court of Appeals has blocked a 14-day extension that had been ordered by a lower court, mandating that absentee ballots arrive by Nov. 3 in order to be counted. In a 3-0 opinion, the appeals panel said any changes must rest with the Legislature, not the judiciary.

Currently, the state legislature in Michigan has a Republican majority, though Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is a Democrat.
President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are fighting a pitched political battle in the state, which went Republican in 2016 for the first time in decades.
