Federal court dismisses lawsuit challenging Illinois mail ballot deadline

Democracy Docket: “a federal judge in Illinois tossed out a lawsuit brought by three Republicans — including the current representative for the state’s 12th Congressional District, Michael Bost (R) — alleging that the state’s mail-in ballot receipt deadline violates federal law and burdens the right to vote under the First and 14th Amendments.” Illinois allows for ballots postmarked by Election Day and received within two weeks to be counted.
