Wisconsin SCOTUS to Re-examine Drop Boxes for Ballots

A key issue from the 2020 election is about to be re-opened by the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

The court is looking at revisiting a key ruling in 2022 that dramatically reduced the placement of ballot drop boxes during the election.

Oral arguments were set to start this week, with a Wisconsin court that is now dominated by liberals, who hold a 4-3 edge.

Expect a Reversal

This is a big decision because this is one of the areas that many believe puts the integrity of the election at risk.

It is a rare exception when a liberal-leaning bench even remotely considers looking at the facts of the case rather than the activist cause it is associated with.

With Democrats now having the lean on Wisconsin’s Supreme Court, Dems are making a big push to have the previous law overturned.

Brian Schimming, chairman of the Wisconsin GOP, expressed his concerns about possible issues regarding the drop boxes, stating, “I’m not hostile to looking at things differently,” Schimming said, “but we’re six months away” from the election, and “we have a Supreme Court who feels as though they’re the second Legislature.”

Jay Heck, the executive director of Common Cause Wisconsin, is saying that more boxes mean more accessibility, stating, “Despite worries and claims by election deniers and conspiracy theorists, drop boxes were not used for any nefarious purpose like they’ve claimed.”

Wisconsin has been decided by about 1% in the last two presidential elections.

Donald Trump win by about 1% in 2016 and Biden won by nearly an identical margin in 2020.

So, there is no reason to believe the results will be any different this time around, and you better believe Democrats will be looking for any edge they can get.

This is a particularly significant election, as Senator Tammy Baldwin’s seat will also be on the ballot, with Baldwin currently holding a nearly 10-point edge against Eric Hovde, the GOP nominee.
