INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WEHT) — A federal judge has blocked an Indiana law preventing voters from asking courts to extend voting hours on Election Day.
The law, which was passed in 2019, prevents anyone other than a county election board from requesting the court to extend voting hours past 6 p.m.
This comes as election officials are implementing coronavirus precautions for in-person voting, while handling an expected surge in mail-in ballots.
