ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland State Board of Elections has voted to file an emergency petition in court that seeks an earlier count of mail-in ballots for the general election in November.

The board voted 4-0 on Monday to take the matter to state court in hopes of speeding up the vote count for mail-in ballots, which have become much more popular with voters in the state.

The board said the continued expansion of mail-in balloting and the inability of the local boards of elections to canvass mail-in ballots before Election Day could have significant implications.
