MADISON, Wis. (AP) A federal appeals court on Thursday blocked a decision to extend the deadline for counting absentee ballots in battleground Wisconsin, in a win for Republicans who have fought attempts to expand voting across the country.
If the ruling stands, absentee ballots will have to be delivered to Wisconsin election clerks by 8 p.m. on Election Day if they are to be counted. Results of the presidential race in the pivotal swing state would be known within hours of polls closing.
Democrats almost certainly will appeal the decision to the U.S. Supreme Court.

There, fixed it!
I live in WI. This ruling better hold.
Must be one of those white judges that Harris was so incensed about last night.
USSC wont hear it.
yes and honestly I do not see SCOTUS ruling for this den of thieves scheme for pandemic-age voting
This should be the standard.
BTW if they throw it to the Supremes and SCOTUS lets the ruling stand, it becomes the law for all 57 states.
If only our pusillanimous current MI-GOP would pursue this in Michigan.
Why won’t Scotus hear the case?
That’s the problem with this tie bit.
It will— in a similar case recently, 8 justices ruled that the Fed courts can’t change the rules in the middle of the game— measures responding to COVID are the purview of the state legislatures, not the Courts.
The two judges in the panels majority were both nominated by Republican presidents. Circuit Judge Frank Easterbrook was appointed by Ronald Reagan and Circuit Judge Amy St. Eve was appointed by Trump.
Circuit Judge Ilana Rovner, an appointee of George H.W. Bush, also a Republican, wrote in a dissent that the majoritys decision was a travesty.
The case can still be appealed to the full 7th Circuit and the Supreme Court.
Ilana Rovner is an old fossil Lefty Resistance judge who refuses to retire so Trump can replace her.
The old Lefty bag is 82 years old...
The HAND OF GOD is going to continue to be on us, God will NEVER turn this country over to this EVIL we all need to PRAY everyday for his goodness!!!
What a dumba$$ statement. The defeated attempts have been through shooting down judicial activism.
Voting laws and any changes, are controlled by state legislatures, not local and federal judges.
I’m voting in person.

Evil old AP:
Republicans fighting attempts to expand voting?
Republicans are fighting Democrat attempts to steal an election.
this is yet ANOTHER huge win for the rule of law, election integrity, & thwarting Democrat election theft ...
