Judge Extends Maryland Deadline For Overseas Ballots

Federal Judge Roger Titus issued an order Friday extending the deadline for receiving overseas ballots from Nov. 12 to Nov. 22.

He ruled on a lawsuit brought by a member of the Maryland National Guard, who sued the state board of elections because he says overseas voters have not been given enough time to obtain and return ballots for Tuesday's election.

The plaintiff alleged that officials mailed overseas ballots listing candidates for federal office only by the deadline set in a new federal law designed to protect military voters. They say this prevents them from voting for state office candidates, including governor.
