U.S. Supreme Court will not allow extension in Wisconsin mail-in ballot deadline

US Supreme CourtSiding with Wisconsin’s Republican-led legislature, the conservative-majority U.S. Supreme Court refused on Monday to allow an extension ordered by a federal judge in the deadline for returning mail-in ballots in the state, dealing a setback to Democrats.

The court, on a 5-3 vote with three liberal justices dissenting, left in place a lower court’s Oct. 8 decision that blocked U.S. District Judge William Conley’s ruling that would have let officials count ballots that were postmarked by the time polls close on Election Day on Nov. 3 but arrived up to six days later.

The high court’s order was issued just before the Senate voted to confirm President Donald Trump’s nominee to fill a vacancy on the bench, Amy Coney Barrett.

The court action keeps in place a state policy that mail-in ballots be in the hands of election officials by the close of polls.
