Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon had reached an agreement with a citizens group allowing ballots to be counted as late as Nov. 10 as long as they are postmarked by Election Day.

The campaigns for President Donald Trump and GOP state legislative candidates are asking the Minnesota Supreme Court to segregate all mailed ballots received after Election Day.

In the latest action challenging Minnesota's seven-day extension for absentee ballots, the campaigns petitioned the court on Wednesday to separate ballots arriving after Tuesday in case of legal challenges to their validity.

A federal appeals court is currently weighing a separate Republican challenge to the extended deadline, which was part of an earlier state court approved agreement with Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon.
