The Supreme Court Sides With Republican’s And Won’t Allow A 6-Day Extension On Ballots In Wisconsin


This is a huge win for Republicans in the swing state of Wisconsin.

The Supreme Court recently made a 5-3 vote against Democrats who were pushing to extend the deadline for counting absentee ballots in Wisconsin by six days.

The Democrats wanted to literally extend the deadline for counting ballots six days after the election.

How crazy is that?

NPR had the scoop see what they had to share:

The Supreme Court, in a 5-3 vote, has reaffirmed a lower court’s block on Wisconsin’s plan that would have allowed ballots in the state to arrive up to six days after Election Day. Democrats and progressive groups asked the justices to intervene after a federal appeals court blocked the ballot-receipt plan.

Republicans argue that the deadline extension threatens the integrity of the election by changing the rules too close to the election, an argument they have made in similar cases.

Democrats say extra days are needed because postal delays could disenfranchise many voters. An NPR analysis earlier this year found that tens of thousands of primary ballots were rejected because they did not arrive on time.

In a statement Monday evening, the Trump campaign called the Wisconsin ruling a “major victory for President Trump, Republicans, all Wisconsin voters, and the rule of law.”

If the Democrats had their way we wouldn’t know who won Wisconsin until six days after the election.

The election would just be another Bush and Gore fiasco but even worse.

November 3rd is called election day but Democrats are trying to make it an election week or even month.

CNBC covered the story too:

The Supreme Court on Monday evening voted 5-3 against Democrats who were pushing to extend the deadline for counting absentee ballots in Wisconsin by six days in order to provide the state more time to deal with the surge in mail-in voting caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The decision, announced in an order, came eight days before Election Day. Wisconsin is a key battleground state in the battle between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden. As a result of the Supreme Court’s move, ballots will have to be delivered by 8 p.m. on Nov. 3 to be counted.
