Wisconsin Moves Forward with Primary; Absentee Deadline Today
The Wisconsin Supreme Court struck down Gov. Tony Evers’ executive order delaying the state’s presidential primary over coronavirus fears.
The court ruled 4-2 Evers lacked the authority to move the election on his own.
The decision means the election will occur as originally scheduled on Tuesday.
Absentee ballots must be postmarked by Tuesday to count after the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the deadline in the first coronavirus-related case to reach the justices.
