Supreme Court blocks Wisconsin from extending absentee voting deadline

Supreme Court blocks Wisconsin from extending absentee voting deadline

The US Supreme Court Monday ruled that Wisconsin cannot accept absentee ballots after its voting day Tuesday, blocking a lower court ruling that gave voters an extra six days to submit their ballots from Election Day to April 13. In a 5-4 vote along ideological lines, the conservative justices sided with Republican state lawmakers who had requested to block extension of absentee voting.

This is as it should be. States run their own ejections. For a federal court to intervene is wrong. For the governor to unilaterally decree a change in the election is wrong. If they wanted to move the date, the governor and legislature would have had to change election law in our State. Obviously, they couldn't come to an agreement. But everyone has had weeks to request an absentee ballot if they didn't want to go to the polls tomorrow.
