Lawsuit over late absentee ballots settled


MADISON (WRN)  The state Government Accountability Board says it has reached a settlement in a lawsuit filed by Republican Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign.

Federal law requires ballots for military and overseas voters to be sent out within 45 days of an election, in order to ensure enough time for them to make it back to be counted. The Romney for President Committee sued the state after four municipalities sent out the requested ballots after the deadline.

Under an agreement reached by the state and campaign, the GAB extended the deadline for those ballots to be returned to November 12th. Local clerks have also been ordered to inform the state when those outstanding ballots are received.

Of the more than 4,400 overseas ballots requested, just four were sent after the 45 day deadline. The GAB says two of those have already been marked and returned.
