Appeals Court Says No Extension For Counting Absentee Ballots


The effort to extend the deadline for counting absentee ballots in Wisconsin could be headed for an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. A federal appeals court today set aside an earlier ruling which would have allowed ballots that arrive as late as November 9th to be counted if they were postmarked on or before November 3rd. Today's reversal means absentee ballots in Wisconsin will have to arrive by election day in order to be counted.
