Last week a lower court judge in Wisconsin ruled that ballots in the state could be counted up to six days after the election, but now an appellate court judge has overturned that ruling, saying, “Nah, election day means election day. No cheating allowed in Wisconsin.”
Just kidding, he didn’t say that. But he did rule that the deadline for ballots to be counted is 8pm on election night. That’s it. Democrats don’t get “overtime” to scrounge up a bunch of fake votes to hand the state to Biden and his non-functioning brain:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A federal appeals court on Sunday temporarily halted a six-day extension for counting absentee ballots in Wisconsin’s presidential election, a momentary victory for Republicans and President Donald Trump in the key presidential battleground state.
As it stands, ballots will now be due by 8 p.m. on Election Day. A lower court judge had sided with Democrats and their allies to extend the deadline until Nov. 9. Democrats sought more time as a way to help deal with an expected historic high number of absentee ballots.
The Democratic National Committee, the state Democratic Party and allied groups including the League of Women Voters sued to extend the deadline for counting absentee ballots after the April presidential primary saw long lines, fewer polling places, a shortage of workers and thousands of ballots mailed days after the election.
Oh, sure. The Democrats are just such nice, caring people. All they want to do is “help deal with an expected historic high number of absentee ballots.”
No. There is no reason we should not know the results of the election on election night. We have had months–years even– to prepare for this. Everybody has known the date of this election for a very long time. In fact, we already know the date of the 2024 Presidential election: November 5, 2024. It’s on the Wikipedia page. There is no excuse here.
Mail-in ballots should have a deadline of at the latest one week before election day. Preferably two weeks.
Great news that Wisconsin has denied the Democrats’ efforts to get “overtime” and steal the state.
