Kavanaugh Corrects Opinion In Wisconsin Ballots Case

CNN reports:

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh late on Wednesday night tweaked a line in his controversial opinion on Wisconsin mail-in voting this week, after he received criticism for incorrectly saying Vermont had not changed its election rules due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

It’s a rare public correction by a justice that comes as the court is facing multiple appeals on voting access and mail-in ballots in the days before the presidential election.

Kavanaugh’s error came Monday night, when the court rejected a Democratic bid to allow Wisconsin to count ballots returned up to six days after Election Day. Kavanaugh wrote a concurring opinion that cited Vermont as a state that hadn’t made changes to its “ordinary election rules.”
