WI appeals court stays ballot drop box restrictions

A state appeals court stayed a judge’s restrictions on the use of absentee ballot drop boxes Monday, finding that curtailing their locations with the spring primary only weeks away could confuse and disenfranchise voters. The Wisconsin Elections Commission issued guidance to clerks in March 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic was taking hold that they could place drop boxes wherever they wish in an effort to avoid spreading infection in long lines at the polls. A number of Wisconsin municipalities placed them in multiple locations during the 2020 presidential election, including city parks. Todd Richmond, The Associated Press.
