Back to the Ballot Drop Box Debate

Back to the Ballot Drop Box Debate

Wisconsin’s supreme court is questioning whether it should once again allow for ballot drop boxes.

The new liberal-majority court heard arguments from yesterday from a liberal group that says it’s unconstitutional to not allow Wisconsin voters to drop off their ballots at unmanned boxes throughout a community. The court’s conservative justices said there’s nothing in state law that specifically allows for ballot drop boxes, and pointed to the law that says absentee voting is a privilege in Wisconsin. Still, the liberal justices said the former conservative-majority court may have made a mistake in 2022 when that court banned drop boxes.

The decision from the court could play a role in this November’s election.
