Arizona and Democratic groups finalized the settlement of a lawsuit challenging the law that mail-in ballots must be “received” by 7pm on Election Day. The Democratic Party said that the ballots should be accepted and counted as long as they are postmarked by Election Day (and received within five days after). The E-Day receipt deadline will remain in place for this year’s elections, but the state agrees to study switching to a “postmark” deadline for future elections.
