A judge in Virginia ordered officials to preserve late-arriving military absentee ballots today.
My FOX DC reported:
A federal judge has ordered election officials in Virginia to preserve late-arriving absentee ballots that Republican John McCain’s campaign claims should be counted.
The McCain campaign says in a lawsuit that absentee ballots weren’t mailed on time to many military members serving overseas. The complaint asks the court to order the state to count absentee ballots from overseas troops postmarked by Tuesday and received by Nov. 14.
The deadline for ballots to be received is 7 p.m. on Election Day.

Democrats, of course, were hoping these votes by our men and women serving overseas would not be counted.
