North Carolina Absentee Ballot Challenges

Arnett v. North Carolina State Board of Elections

Lawsuit filed by the North Carolina Republican Party challenging the state’s processing of mail-in ballots and the ability to challenge absentee ballots. The complaint requests a new process that would delay the counting of absentee ballots. The North Carolina Democratic Party intervened in the case. The court denied the plaintiff’s request for a temporary restraining order, finding that they had not followed proper procedures for raising their claims.
