The Wisconsin Presidential Primary will go ahead Today under an order from the State Supreme Court

The Wisconsin Presidential Primary will go ahead Today under an order from the State Supreme Court. Gov Evers on Monday tried to postpone voting as part of an effort to move the election to June and use all mail in ballots. The court ruled 4-2 that the Gov lacked the authority to move the election on his own and the decision will make Wisconsin the only state with an election scheduled in April that is proceeding as planned. Gov Evers tried to call a special session of the legislature over the weekend but Republicans wouldn’t postpone the election or vote to move to an all mail in ballot system. The US Supreme court blocked a plan to extend absentee voting by six days due to COVID 19, the extension was granted by a federal judge last week, the decision came shortly after the State supreme court ruled. The rulings essentially put pre COVID 19 rules into effect with absentee ballots only being counted if it is delivered in person or postmarked by April 7th. Election officials say to go to the post office to ensure ballots get postmarked so it can be counted. 2500 Members of the National Guard volunteered to be poll workers in the counties in which they live but it will still leave many polling places closed.
