Wisconsin Supreme Court Revisits Ballot Drop Box Ban Ahead of Election

The Wisconsin Supreme Court is going to take another look at a big decision from 2022 that limited the use of ballot drop boxes, just in time for the upcoming election. The court has more liberal judges right now, with a 4-3 majority, so there’s a chance they could overturn the 2022 ruling, which was made when there were more conservative judges. This is a really important thing to watch because of the big election coming up.

The Democrats really want to change the 2022 ruling that said the only place you can drop off your absentee ballot is at the election clerk’s office. They say this change would make it easier for more people to vote. On the other hand, Republicans and other conservative groups are hoping the 2022 ruling stays in place. They’re worried about the security of the ballot drop boxes and think that letting more people use them could lead to trouble.

The head of the Wisconsin GOP thinks that having more time before the election to think about this is important. He’s concerned that the Supreme Court is trying to make laws instead of just deciding if the laws follow the rules.

Another person, who works for Common Cause Wisconsin, says that more drop boxes would make it easier for people to vote. He thinks there’s nothing wrong with using drop boxes and that the people who say they’re bad are just making up stories.

Wisconsin is a really big state in the fight for who will be in charge of the country. Both President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden won by just a little bit in recent elections, and it’s hard to tell who will win this time around. The election will also decide who will be in charge of the Senate, and right now, it looks like the Democratic senator might keep her job.
