THE ELECTION IS ON!
The Wisconsin Supreme Court overturned Governor Evers' executive order to postpone the Spring election. The vote will be held as scheduled on Tuesday.
In addition, the US Supreme Court also struck down an earlier ruling of a federal judge that extended the deadline for returning absentee ballots for nearly a week.
The deadline for submitting absentee ballots to your polling location is 8:00pm Tuesday, April 07.
In response to the decision handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court, the Republican Party of Wisconsin issued the following statement from Chairman Andrew Hitt:
“Consistent with years of precedent, the U.S. Supreme Court concluded that election laws should not be changed on the eve of an election. The confusion and time wasted as a result of these multiple lawsuits when we should have all been solely focused on preparing for a challenging election is truly sad and unfortunate. While some have argued that we should quickly change or circumvent our laws in a time of crisis, justifications in the moment can quickly lead us down a slippery slope that erodes our democracy.”
You can vote in-person, or return your completed absentee ballot at your local polling place tomorrow, April 07 from 7:00am to 8:00pm
