A federal judge in South Carolina says the state can't reject absentee ballots over signature mismatches.

The judge found the state's process for matching signatures was inconsistent and subjective, placing a "significant burden" on voting rights. Any ballots thrown out so far must be reviewed again.

This year South Carolina has seen a record number of mail-in voters at over 300,000. That's more than twice as many as in the 2016 election.
