Judge nullifies voter registration deadline

In the last election in Burlington, a woman came to vote who had registered after the deadline. She was not allowed to vote. She was informed of her right to appeal to a judge. The judge allowed her to vote. Does this mean voter registration deadlines are not enforceable? People who register close to the deadline should bring their registration papers to the polls because their names will not be on the checklist.
