SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Judges decided on key voting cases in two swing states Thursday.

A U.S. appeals court blocked an order that would have let Wisconsin count absentee ballots that arrive after election day.

In a 2-1 ruling, the court blocked a previous decision that allowed election officials to count mail-in ballots that arrive up to six days after Nov. 3. The court ruled it was too close to election day to make the changes to count late-arriving ballots.

And in Ohio, a judge blocked an order from the state's secretary of state that would have limited counties to only one drop box for absentee ballots.
