MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - A federal court judge has rejected a challenge to Vermont’s plan to mail ballots to all of the state’s active voters so they can cast ballots by mail or in-person for the November election.

In a Wednesday decision, U.S. District Court Judge Geoffrey Crawford denied the motion for a preliminary injunction to block the system and he dismissed the lawsuit filed by five Vermonters.

Meanwhile, Secretary of State Jim Condos says registered Vermont voters will automatically receive a ballot in the mail. The current plan is for ballots to be mailed starting on Sept. 21.
