The Nation’s Highest court has struck down the extension for the deadline to return absentee ballots in Wisconsin.

The Supreme Court voted on the Order 5-3. The vote happened just before the swearing in of newest Justice Amy Coney Barrett. The law change would have accepted and counted absentee ballots that were returned within 6 days following the November 3rd Election. The ruling means that all absentee ballots will need to be either returned in person or received by mail by November 3rd at 8:00pm. There are roughly 360,000 absentee ballots that have not been returned yet in Wisconsin, out of the over 1.1 million requested.
