Wisconsin Supreme Court docket rejects Donald Trump’s election problem; electors vote for Joe Biden | Native Authorities
Prior to the electoral meeting, the Supreme Court issued a ruling on a separate complaint from Republicans seeking clarification from “indefinite” voters.
The status applies to voters who are unable to vote personally for an indefinite period of time due to age, physical illness, infirmity or disability, and exempts them from presenting photo ID. The Trump campaign challenged ballots from voters in Dane and Milwaukee counties who cast their ballots under this distinction, claiming that many of them did not meet the definition of unlimited restricted.
In the spring, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ordered these employees to stop issuing guidelines, which differ from the WEC guidelines. These state that “each and every voter must indefinitely determine a status based on their current circumstances,” but states that this is not the case, simply used to avoid the requirement for a voter ID card.
The court’s order has since remained in effect for the November elections.
On Monday, the court ruled that voters could certify themselves as “limited for an indefinite period”. However, your decision can only be based on age, physical illness or infirmity and not on the condition of another person. The ruling could provide a basis for the expected court ruling on Trump’s election challenge.
