Wisconsin’s November ballot isn’t changing.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court yesterday ruled, 4-3, that the Green Party waited too long to take their ballot challenge to court. The justices say the Green Party was right to challenge the Wisconsin Election Commission’s split decision in August that kept them off the ballot, but said that the court could not add them to the ballot now without disrupting the election. Absentee ballots are due in the mail here in Wisconsin on Thursday.
Wisconsin’s attorney general says the Wisconsin Supreme Court avoided election chaos.
A-G Josh Kaul yesterday said the decision from the high court not to add the Green Party to the November ballot allows local election managers to mail their ballots on time on Thursday. Kaul issued a one line statement after the court’s ruling, saying ‘Election chaos averted.’ The Wisconsin Supreme Court yesterday said the Green Party waited too long to ask the court to add them to the ballot.
