Judge Rules Absentee Ballot Drop Boxes Unlawful in Wisconsin

A Wisconsin county judge on Thursday ruled absentee ballot drop boxes used in the 2020 presidential election are unlawful in Wisconsin.

Waukesha County Judge Michael Bohren ordered the Wisconsin Elections Commission to resend its guidelines on how election officials utilize widespread drop boxes. The ruling will likely be appealed.

The original drop box instructions were issued in March of 2020 and were reportedly instrumental in getting out the vote during the coronavirus pandemic.

The judge’s ruling reportedly specified the so-called “bipartisan” commission should not have unilaterally issued the drop box guidance to local election officials without proceeding through the traditional rulemaking process.

“State statutes do not address the use of ballot drop boxes, though the state elections commission issued guidance in early 2020 to allow election clerks to make use of them,” the Wisconsin State Journal reported.

The three conservative justices on the 7-justice Wisconsin Supreme Court wrote in Trump v. Biden in 2020 that tens of thousands of ballots were cast in violation of state election laws, including by the use of these drop boxes.

But by a 4-3 vote, a liberal-led majority of that court held on December 14, 2020, that it was too late for the court to rule on the merits of those legal claims, and the conservatives’ opinion was relegated to a dissent from that decision.

In essence, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled that voters were allowed, according to the commission’s rules, to register for an absentee ballot without furnishing an ID and could alternatively claim a rare status of “indefinitely confined” due to the pandemic.

The special status could only be used if the voter was sick or disabled, however. But that did not stop an estimated 250,000 people from voting absentee without a voter ID, claiming the rare status due to “age, physical illness or infirmity or are disabled for an indefinite period.”

According to WisPolitcs.com, the clerk’s office accepted 653,236 in-person ballots. Another 1.3 million were cast absentee. No record was reportedly kept on how many ballots were accepted through drop boxes.

President Biden defeated Donald Trump by 20,682 votes in Wisconsin.

    Then ALL votes from those boxes should be revoked and a Recount must be done.

    What is supposed to happen to Politicians who took an oath to take care of the American people. We all know there are so many criminals out there in the Democratic party, and some Republicans too. How do they get away with just forgetting about Citizens in Democratic Cities. We really are prisoners. The criminals run around rampant because the Soros appointed DA’s just take their paycheck and lay low. No arrests are in order. What is wrong with this country when they can not see they want to make us into a One World Order. When our Government offices are not doing their jobs correctly, unfortunately this continues on and on. You could go to court every day and that is too long for this takeover of our country. They are ruling us.

    Reminds me of something I heard ages ago that fits into the liberal court’s agenda of creative inertia. Even if there is a compelling reason to act on a situation they follow four steps.

    1] Nothing’s going to happen
    2] Something might happen but we shouldn’t do anything about it.
    3] Maybe we should do something but there’s nothing we can do.
    4] Maybe there was something we could have done but it’s too late now.

    Frigging leftist judges are traitors to the oath they swore. Scumbags.
