Supreme Court refuses to allow mail-in ballots recieved after election day in Wisconsin to be counted

As Democrat-led groups around the country file a flurry of lawsuits with intention of extending deadlines for counting ballots that are mailed-in, the party just found out that their efforts weren’t successful in at least one key swing state, thanks to a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Monday.

According to ABC News, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to uphold a lower federal court ruling that would have given election officials in the state of Wisconsin an extra six days to count mail-in ballots after November 3. The 5-3 ruling was announced Monday in a statement from Chief Justice John Roberts. 

The ruling was a surprise to many, given that last week the court upheld a ruling that allowed for a lengthy extension for counting mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania, another battleground state. However, Roberts explained that the reason for the difference in rulings on virtually the same issue resulted from how it was handled in lower courts.

In Pennsylvania, the High Court upheld the ruling that called for the extension because it came from the state’s highest court. In Wisconsin, a lower federal court ruling that allowed for an extension was later shot down by an Appeals Court, which resulted in the Supreme Court upholding the Appeals Court’s ruling.

“Different bodies of law and different precedents govern these two situations and require, in these particular circumstances, that we allow the modification of election rules in Pennsylvania but not Wisconsin,” Roberts wrote.

At the crux of the battle for and against extensions is a battle between the two parties. Republicans believe that voters have had plenty of time to cast their votes before the election, including extra early voting opportunities in many states.

Democrats have continually weaponized the COVID-19 pandemic as a tool to convince their followers that voting booths aren’t safe and that the best way to vote is by mail, arguing that because there is an increased level of mail-in voting that states should have more time to count the ballots.

In hotly-contested Wisconsin — a state that Trump won by a mere 22,748 votes in 2016 — the U.S. Elections Project indicated that as of this writing, nearly 1.1 million mail-in ballots have been returned out of 1,778,157 mail-in ballots requested by voters in the state.

Given that information, the Supreme Court’s ruling could prove to be a monumental boost for President Donald Trump’s campaign and a heavy blow to Democrats, as there’s no telling if the remainder of the mail-in ballots will make it to election officials by the November 3 deadline.

  1. I DON’T THINK THAT OUR SUPREME COURT IS DOING EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO MAKE THE VOTING LAWS CORRECTLY CARRIED OUT. NO STATE SHOULD BE ABLE TO COUNT BALLOTS AFTER 12:00PM ON NOV 3RD. PERIOD! THE LAW IS THE LAW, AND NEEDS TO BE ENFORCED. THIS IS A FEDERAL ELECTION, NOT A STATE ONE, SO STATES SHOULD NOT HAVE ANY POWERS OVER CONTROLLING THE BALLOT COUNTING, BEING HELD OVER FOR ANY REASONS, JUST SO THAT THE DEMS CAN ADD MORE BALLOTS AS NEEDED.

    1. I agree John. No ballot should be counted after 12 pm on Nov. 3rd regardless of the reason .. I voted early but I went to a polling place and voted .. I couldn’t have been any safer … you people who are mailing in your ballots because you’re afraid of contacting covid are idiots .. not sure you should even be allowed to vote at all

      1. The had to vote by mail so that they had extra time to go to Walmart and mingle with other “safe” shoppers !

    2. Well stated. When it comes to Federal election everything should be done by the book. As you stated 12:00 PM should be the closing point on November 3rd.

    3. Tired of the Democrats trying to move the goal posts to their advantage.
      They think, if they can’t comply with the Constitution, they can just change it willy nilly.

      1. Horntex, I totally agree and I am hoping our new Supreme court justice Amy Coney Barrett will stand by the constitution on everything she votes on. The Dems think they are God and do whatever. Lets show them how wrong they can be. Vote all Red and re elect President Trump. There is only only God and it’s not the Dems.

    4. If you can go to the grocery store, pump gas into your car, and other such things, you can go in person and vote! PERIOD. No extra time for mailing ballots.

    5. John is absolutely right. We have a right to know the winner of the election on November 3rd or early morning November 4th. The election is November 3rd, not the 13th or the 17th and therefore no state should have a right to count ballots after November 3rd. We need to have the Federal law for presidential elections across all states, no exceptions. This crap has really gotten out of hand just like the Democrats.

      1. Totally correct. The Marxist Communist Democrats seem to feel they can keep pulling new votes put of the Air (or ground), until they have enough votes to win. That’s not honest voting..that’s Democrat voting.
        Well, I’ll give them one thing…they are sure dedicated voters. They even vote AFTER they die.

    6. I absolutely agree. With all the early voting people have there is NO LEGITIMATE REASON they All the ballots shouldn’t be received before the election in plenty of time to be correctly counted.

    7. The problem is, voting is constitutionally decided be each states legislature. Now if people try to go around that, that I believe is illegal. That is when courts should step in, only then.

    8. Totally correct. The Marxist Communist Democrats seem to feel they can keep pulling new votes put of the Air (or ground), until they have enough votes to win. That’s not honest voting..that’s Democrat voting.
      Well, I’ll give them one thing…they are sure dedicated voters. They even vote AFTER they die.0

  2. HAAA, JUSTICE IS SERVED. Take THAT, you lowdown, sneaky DEMOCRAPS !

    SO NOW I guess it’s time to move to Step 5, or 6, or even further down your list of ATTEMPTED DIRTY TRICKS !

    The honest people voting in AMERICA are ready for you … READ THIS AND WEEP, PIGS !!

  3. The ONLY reason John Roberts, the hidden liberal on the court has started ruling with the Constitution is because of ACB coming on, and he always wants to be the one writing for the majority. If he now rules with the liberals like he has been doing, then the Great Clarence Thomas will be writing for the majority, and John Roberts wants to be the big man, as always. So, now we may have a 6/3 majority, instead of the 5/4 I have been expecting. Great news for this Great Country, and our Great Constitution!

  4. All rules MUST follow our Constitution. We have many days early voting, why the DemocRats still want to extend the election day. That is a plot to steal the election. It is not good. Now a day the DemocRats are really different previous ones. It is so sad for our country

  5. THERE SHOULD BE (LEGALLY) “NO” EXTENTION OF BALLOT COUNTING AFTER Election Day!!!!!!!!! I CAN NOT REMEMBER THIS EVER HAPPENING IN THE PAST…….AND THIS ELECTION SHOULD BE “NO” DIFFERENT…………THE DEMS JUST WANT EXTRA TIME TO COMMIT FRAUD!!!!!!!!! WHEN “ELECTION” DAY IS OVER……ITS OVER!!!!!!!!! IF EITHER PARTY WANT TO CHANGE LAWS………..THIS IS NOT THE TIME FOR IT!!!!!!!!! THEY HAVE HAD PLENTY OF TIME PREVIOUSLY TO DO THAT!!!!!!!!!! WITH ALL THE POLLS SAYING THE DEMS ARE AHEAD OF TRUMP…….THEY SEEM VERY NERVOUS ABOUT THE ACTUAL VOTE!!!!!!! IF THEY ARE SOOOOOO SURE……WHATS THE PROBLEM????????????? WHAT FOOLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE DEMS REALLY THINK THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. I agree with all the statements made above! The Supreme Court’s job is not to re-write the laws or Constitution, but to enforce it as it is written. AND YES, I do believe that the confirmation of Justice ACB will change the way that liberal John Roberts votes. Justice ACB is one smart person and she proved that during her Senate hearing. I believe that she will probably be the next Chief Justice!

  7. Early voting and late both are asinine. I read that there are Biden voters who would change their vote after the last debate and the mismumbling he’s done lately. Late voting is opportunity for fraud but this heavy mail in voting with no postmarks should one from each party opening and counting and checking names against registered voter lists and the voted in person register.

  8. We have been able to vote early since Oct 7th by mail or in person. If you haven’t been able to drag your butt up and out to vote either by mail or in person why should the deadline be extended? It shouldn’t!!

    1. If one is going to vote by mail, then the ballot should be in the mail soon enough to be counted by election day. I would say four or five days before election day, or more if necessary. There is no reason for them to be late.

  9. Early voting is a disgrace ! Election day is Nov. 3rd, period. Election voting is terminated as of 12 AM on Nov 4th, not 12 PM on the 3rd.

  10. Essentially identical issues: may state boards of elections unilaterally extend vote counting in federal elections beyond established deadline of 3 Nov? SCOTUS announces diametrically opposite decisions to the core issue. Eight justices ruled “yes” and “no” … it all depends on what level of court last issued a ruling. A state’s highest court vs a lowly federal appeals court. The underlying principle: SCOTUS is concerned not with generalizing the principle of unilateral state extensions but whether the last court to opine on the question was of sufficient standing to be deemed worthy of notice. Form over substance, stated simply, makes plain for me the undeniable perversion, bankruptcy of the “law.”

  11. Judge Amy Barrett, sure has her work cut out for her, dealing with her court, and the way things have been ran, shes gonna need all of the support she can get! The things that are just, and fair isnt acknowledged, or recgnized in these times that were in today! May the Lord protect Judge Barrett. Yes the left side of congress, has lost any dignity to sink as low as they have, ignoring any, and all laws that were put into place by our pioneers that laid the very fabric of our great nation.

  12. I agree that limitation on time is correct, but I do think there are a few exceptions and there are already laws in place for those / military serving away from the US and astronauts

  13. You know I been thinking about this court packing thing. It could save the country a whole lot of money. You see if the court is going to make the laws we wont need the congress. Just think we could get rid of all the congressmen, and their aids, secretaries, advisors, and other support personal. We wouldn’t need to pay for all their perks, and pet projects. Ya ! man we could save a billion dollars a year, just by eliminating congress. Congrats Schumer you come up with some really good ideas sometimes. Of course we would have to provide job training for those that need to be retrained. We could teach them how to make Big Macs, or KFC.

    1. No we don’t need these idiots, they work for us, we don’t work for them. Just fire them, their not worth anything anyway. I don’t think I have seen anyone so useless.

  14. People in Pa are upset with ballots being counted days after election. Rt he e is constitution says ele cc tion day so how should be they be in able to see change it. No this is Dems in at there finest. We peop ll e want voter in ID. Does not matter what happens God is still in control.

  15. I think that if we are to remain a nation governed by the Constitution, that the recent SC decision in the Wisconsin Mail In dead line is in accordance with our voting laws. To extend the voting process beyond the National Voting Day to allow for Mailed in Ballots mailed to arrive after, or mailed after the Nation’s Voting Day could open a very dangerous door to late ballot stuffing to change the outcome to favor the Candidate who may be shy of winning, to a victory due to Ballots mailed well after Voting day. It actually throws out the Fair Election Process all together. A Mailing dead line should be established so that ALL Ballots mailed would arrive on or before the voting day for tabulation. This year there has been Mail In voting, early physical voting to allow for the current Pandemic we are experiencing. Before this year We have successfully voted in elections during many adverse conditions without compromising our election standards. No Need for change now. Unless the aim is to Change the Standard to achieve an Ideological Change.

  16. posted a few minutes ago but not published . Trying again . Some Republicans vote for Dimms online and We will vote Republican on election day . That I think is one reason Trump was elected and polls are so off right now .

  17. I always thought that congress made laws, and the court made sure that the law worked with in the constitution. For a judge to insert his personal beliefs would be to operate out side of the constitution, which would be a violation of the constitution, as this would be ( as Mueller would say is ) not under the judges prevue. This is exactly what the left is accusing Amy of, because of her religion. Such judges should be removed from the bench. Do you hear me Mr. Roberts.

  18. Fartsteins religion is very telling, it is hard to believe in nothing, but she tries very hard to keep her faith. The DOG LIVES IN HER AND IT IS QUITE VICIOUS.

    Atheisms is a religion of it’s own, and has it’s own dogma. So Fartstein can keep it to herself, I do not like her trying to force her dogma on to me. She definitely uses her dog(ma) to push her agenda, so she does not need to accuse someone else. She is more guilty than most.

  19. This whole idea of mail in ballots was conceived by the left based on the Wuhan virus. They knew that this crisis was a prime opportunity to try to bend the rules in order to win this election. They are the most unscrupulous, devious, criminal faction of individuals in this nation. They will stoop to any level to win. They will cheat. They will break the law. They will lie and even use the lamestream media to propagandize voters. I am glad that the Supreme Court is watching.

  20. 36 counties have over 1 million registered voters then the population. This means there is fraud. Dead people and illegals voting. Illegals signed by by democrat states. Its not going to be fair because democrats cheat

  21. What a bunch of ignorant sycophants. I didn’t read all the comments, and hope I missed some with intellectual level observations, but official final results are often not determined until after the day of an election. And none of that has to do with illegality. Often results are announced before the end of the day of the election because the early tabulations indicate such a wide margin for the winner that it is safe to tell the press who is winning. (And west coast and Hawaii results are known which come in later because of time zones.)
    You all might also be interested to know that Dewey was declared the Presidential winner in 1948 by the press when late results made Truman President.
