Wisconsin’s local election managers may have nearly an extra week to count absentee ballots in November.
A federal judge in Madison yesterday ordered that absentee ballots that come-in as late as November 9th can be counted. The ballots must be postmarked by Election Day, November 3rd. Judge William Connelly expects his ruling to be challenged, so he placed his order on hold for one week. Wisconsin’s Election Commission says more than a million people have requested absentee ballots so far this year.
