Court upholds Wisconsin absentee ballot extension

Local News

LA CROSSE/EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – A federal appeals court upholds a six-day extension for counting absentee ballots in Wisconsin.

The decision, if it stands, means ballots postmarked on or before November 3 will be counted as long as they’re received by November 9.

That could mean the winner of the badger state’s 10 electoral votes will not be known for days after the polls close.

Republicans could appeal the case to the U.S. Supreme Court.
