More changes are coming before Election Day in Wisconsin.
A federal appeals court yesterday unanimously reinstated most of the state’s 2016 election law changes. The ruling means early voting in Wisconsin will be shrunk to two weeks, people have to live in the state for at least a month in order to vote, and voters won’t be able to get their ballots by email or fax.
The court said the law was written to benefit Republicans, but it does not make it tougher for minorities to vote. Liberal groups are happy that the court will allow voters to continue to use expired student ID’s at the polls.
