(Madison, WI) — Absentee ballots in Wisconsin must be fully filled-out to be counted in this year’s election. Both a judge in Madison and a state appeals court yesterday refused to change the rules for addresses on absentee ballots. A number of liberal groups wanted to allow local election managers to continue to fill-in missing addresses on the ballots or ballot witness applications. The Wisconsin Elections Commission allowed that two years ago, but both lawmakers and a Waukesha County judge ordered them to stop. The judges yesterday both essentially said that changing the address rules again would ‘upend the status quo’ and cause confusion ahead of next week’s Election Day.
