The deadline for some residents of Cobb County, Georgia, to return their mail-in ballots was extended by a judge on Monday after election officials failed to send out ballots to 1,036 people who requested them.
Some of the affected voters filed a lawsuit over the weekend asking for an extension after election officials admitted that the mistake was due to an error on their part.
"This is an important result for these Cobb County voters, who through no fault of their own did not receive the absentee ballots to which they were legally entitled," Jonathan Topaz, an attorney at the American Civil Liberties Union’s Voting Rights Project, said in a statement.
