Federal Court Rules Wisconsin Mail Ballots Postmarked By Election Day Shall Be Counted Up To Six Days Later

Law & Crime reports:

A federal judge in Wisconsin ruled on Monday that absentee ballots postmarked as mailed on or before Nov. 3—namely, Election Day—shall be counted up to six days later.

U.S. District Judge William Conley issued a series of election-related orders that favored the Democratic National Committee plaintiffs while allowing the Commissioners of the Wisconsin Election Commission and Republican-appointed Secretary Marge Bostelmann time to appeal before the ruling goes into effect.

Judge Conley, a Barack Obama appointee, paused the ruling for going into effect for seven days in order to allow the state defendants time to pursue an appeal.
