MADISON, Wis. (AP) A federal appeals court on Sunday temporarily halted a six-day extension for counting absentee ballots in Wisconsins 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.

Democrats sought more time as a way to help deal with an expected historic high number of absentee ballots as soon as they know how many they need.
an on-time cutoff favors a fair election.
a later than on-time cutoff risks favoring a crooked election.
therefore judges should rule in favor of an early cutoff.
Now, how come Democrats didnt demand that we kept counting votes a week after Obama won in 2008 and 2012? now, all of a sudden, the democrats want maybe up to 2 more weeks to keep counting votes? this is nuts!
Good news indeed.
Are the politicians really this dumb? In the private sector, when you see a surge in capacity approaching, you hire more people.
Perhaps I am wrong. It’s the people that are stupid
This “Count till you win BS” has got to stop.
In the Bush/Gore FLA mess, the USSC ordered the count to be stopped.
This seemed more like an acknowledgement of Democrat proclivities to count, recount, then count again, till they had the necessary votes to win.
STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE: The USSC ruled in the Bush/Gore fiasco that it was a violation of the one man, one vote to only partially count and SINCE they couldn’t count the whole state, Gore’s partial recount was invalid.
BTW, when the USSC stepped in ......it was due to brilliant legal moves by Bush’s lawyer, former Secy of State James Baker.
In his book about losing the election, Gore related that everytime his lawyers moved in, Bush’s lawyer were one step ahead of them.
Agree. Thankfully, there are some Courts with integrity and common sense. Why is it some “Judges” do not see the potential for manipulation of election results by extending time to count ballots?? OR...could it be they do see the potential impact and it fits their agenda.
“Why is it some Judges do not see the potential for manipulation of election results by extending time to count ballots??”
They do, they’re corrupt. Sadly America is thoroughly corrupt at this time.
Temporary if the 7th Circus or SCOTUS dont reverse it.
The Trump campaign and the states GOP are dealing with those even as we speak.
God i hope so
Traitor Roberts is WRONG.
There ARE 0bama Judges.
Some on the Supreme Court.
I’d like to see ACB get on the bench and kick roberts a$$.
Maybe she will end up being the first woman chief justice.
