WASH­ING­TON: Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s cam­paign yes­ter­day again asked the US Supreme Court to block North Carolina’s plan for count­ing ab­sen­tee bal­lots that ar­rive af­ter elec­tion day, say­ing it vi­o­lated the state’s elec­tion code.

The cam­paign ini­tially filed the ap­pli­ca­tion on Fri­day af­ter a US fed­eral ap­peals court de­ci­sion last week left North Carolina’s plan in place, al­low­ing it to tally bal­lots post­marked by Novem­ber 3 and ar­riv­ing be­fore Novem­ber 12.

‘‘An emer­gency in­junc­tion is ur­gently needed to en­sure that our fed­eral elec­tion is gov­erned by the statutes en­acted by the peo­ple,’’ the cam­paign wrote in a new fil­ing. — Reuters
