Gavel Drops, WI Absentee Ballots Counted on Election Day

Gavel Drops, WI Absentee Ballots Counted on Election Day

The United States Supreme Court is not going to change the rules for counting late absentee ballots in Wisconsin.

The court yesterday ruled 5-3 that state lawmakers, not federal judges are the ones who write the election laws in Wisconsin. The decision overturns a Madison-based federal judge who wanted to allow local election managers to count ballots that came-in as late as six days after Election Day.

The high court’s ruling means late absentee ballots will not be counted this year.
