The Supreme Courts of Wisconsin and Pennsylvania have agreed to hear cases regarding voting laws that were in place for the 2020 election.
“Conservative activists earned lower court victories in both states, leading their supreme courts to take up the cases. A lower state court determined its mail-in voting law was unconstitutional in Pennsylvania. In Wisconsin, a state trial court held that it was illegal to use drop boxes for returning absentee ballots,” reports Breitbart News.
“Republicans challenged voting laws in each state judiciary because their Democrat governors are unlikely to sign off on any changes to current voting laws,” reports Breitbart News.
“This is the only way it could play out, because (Governor Tom Wolf) would never” repeal mail voting, Adam Bonin, a Pennsylvania election attorney, said.
“In Wisconsin, conservatives successfully challenged the state’s absentee dropbox law. A state trial court ordered drop boxes banned ahead of February’s local primary, but a state appeals court stayed the order. Wisconsin’s supreme court agreed to hear the case and keep the appeal court’s stay in place while the case is pending,” reported Breitbart News.
“Conservatives might have more chance in Wisconsin’s highest court, as its makeup is different from Pennsylvania’s. Wisconsin’s supreme court is evenly split with three conservatives and three liberals, one moderate swing justice. The Wisconsin elections commission failed to repeal their dropbox guidelines, so voters may use them until the state supreme court decides its fate,” according to Breitbart News.
