The Dem losing streak continues.
They’re not holding up all that well when it comes to “Supreme Courts” all across this great nation.
And nowhere was that more abundantly clear than in Wisconsin, where Dems just had their butts handed to them by the state supreme court… and not only that, but it was a huge win for election integrity for all Americans.
Ballot boxes and ballot harvesting was just ruled “illegal” by the state supreme court.
Daily Wire reported that the Wisconsin Supreme Court has banned the use of unmanned ballot drop boxes for ballot collection in a tight decision released on Friday.
The court ruled 4-3 that voters could not turn their ballots into unmanned drop boxes and said that voters would not be allowed to give their ballots to others to drop off for them. The court said that voters would have the option to turn their ballots in-person or mail them in. Furthermore, drop boxes will not be used in the August primary or the general election.
“An absentee ballot must be returned by mail or the voter must personally deliver it to the municipal clerk at the clerk’s office or a designated alternative site,” the majority decision said.
The lawsuit, initiated by two Wisconsin voters, was brought against several entities including the Wisconsin Election Commission (WEC) and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
Documents in question included guidance from the WEC on mail-in-ballots and voting. The lawsuit alleged that ballot drop boxes “causes doubts about the fairness of the elections and erodes voter confidence in the electoral process.”
“The key phrase is ‘in person’ and it must be assigned its natural meaning,” said Justice Rebecca Bradley, who wrote the majority decision. She also said that election regulations regarding ballot drop boxes should come from the legislature.
“Only the legislature may permit absentee voting via ballot drop boxes,” she wrote.
The courts liberal leaning justices said the decision restricted the right to vote.
“Although it pays lip service to the import of the right to vote, the majority/lead opinion has the practical effect of making it more difficult to exercise it,” Justice Ann Walsh Bradley wrote in her dissent.
The decision followed a lower court ruling that also banned the use of drop boxes. During the 2020 presidential election there were about 500 ballot drop boxes in use in Wisconsin.
Republican candidates running to unseat Governor Tony Evers (D-WI) praised the court’s decision.
We still have a lot more work to do, but this is a huge victory.
Onwards and upwards!
