WI Court to Hear Ballot Drop Box Debate

Wisconsin’s supreme court is reopening the debate over ballot drop boxes.

The liberal-majority court yesterday accepted a case that looks to overturn Wisconsin’s current ban on ballot drop boxes. The old, conservative-majority court, ruled that Wisconsin law does not allow for ballot drop boxes at any place except the election clerk’s office. But Democrats and activists argued that state law didn’t specifically ban them. Conservative Justice Rebecca Bradley wrote yesterday that the liberal-majority court is, once again, trying to ‘increase the electoral prospects of its preferred political party.’

The court will hear arguments in the case in May.
