DOVER, Del. (AP) — Delaware’s Supreme Court says that new state laws allowing universal voting by mail and Election Day registration are unconstitutional.

The justices said Friday that the vote-by-mail statute impermissibly expands the categories of absentee voters identified in Delaware’s constitution. They also said the same-day registration law conflicts with the registration periods spelled out in the constitution. The order came after the justices heard arguments in the case on Thursday.

A Court of Chancery judge last month upheld the same-day registration law but said the vote-by-mail law violates restrictions on absentee voting in Delaware’s constitution.
