The U-S Supreme Court has been asked to decide whether Wisconsin ballots that come in after Election Day should be counted.
The back-and-forth over late absentee ballots has been argued fiercely in the Badger State since the COVID-19 pandemic arrived. Wisconsin Democrats and advocates of the practice in Washington, D-C, asked the High Court to take the case Tuesday. A federal appeals court ruled last week those ballots shouldn’t be counted. Courts in other states have ruled in favor of counting the late ballots, meaning the Supreme Court is more likely to step in.
