“NC voters who make mistakes on mail-in ballots will now have an easier way to fix them”

News & Observer:

People who mess up their mail-in ballots will have an easier time fixing them in order to make sure their vote doesn’t get thrown out, under a deal to resolve a lawsuit against North Carolina.

The N.C. State Board of Elections announced Tuesday that it has tentatively reached a settlement with a political group representing retirees that had sued over the state’s various rules for mail-in voting.

In addition to creating new rules making it easier for people to fix issues on their mail-in ballots, the settlement would also extend the amount of time after the election that absentee ballots could come in after the election is over and still be counted.
