BREAKING: Wisconsin Supreme Court says election officials were wrong; ballots may not be counted

UPDATE: In a separate challenge, the Wisconsin Supreme Court has tossed President Trump’s case.

MADISON — The Wisconsin Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Mark Jefferson and the Republican Party of Wisconsin.

The opinion, which was released this morning, says local election officials were wrong to suggest that voters could claim the status of “indefinitely confined” based on COVID-19. The majority decision also held that if voters falsely claimed they were indefinitely confined “their ballots would not count.”

WILL YOU DONATE? Your kindness keeps The Election Wizard free of charge.

But the court noted that a determination must be make in every case before tossing a ballot.

In a separate suit, President Trump has sought seek to invalidate all votes cast under the special status. In a second ruling released today, the court said the President was in error to ask that all ballots cast under the special status be tossed.

Under Wisconsin law, a voter may receive a ballot by mail and bypass Wisconsin’s voter ID law, if the voter, by his own determination, concludes he “confined” based on age, physical illness, or infirmity. This fall, roughly 215,000 voters in Wisconsin said they were indefinitely confined, nearly a four-fold increase from the 2016 election.

The court said the government’s interpretation of Wisconsin’s indefinitely confined was erroneous. “A county clerk may not “declare” that any elector is indefinitely confined due to a pandemic,” the court said. The court further stated that, “…the presence of a communicable disease such as COVID-19, in and of itself, does not entitle all electors [voters] in Wisconsin to obtain an absentee ballot…”

Moreover, the court stated that lockdown orders do not meet the requirements under Wisconsin law to allow a voter to claim the status of “indefinitely confined” either.

In its final decision, the justices concluded that it’s up to each voter — not the county clerks or anyone else — to decide if and when they qualify as indefinitely confined.

After a string of defeats in court, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling comes as much needed victory for President Trump and his allies, and leaves the door open for additional challenges.

  1. Did you read the ruling before writing this article?

    It clearly states: “We conclude the challenge to indefinitely confined voter ballots is without merit, and that laches bars relief on the remaining three categories of challenged ballots. The Campaign is not entitled to relief, and therefore does not succeed in its effort to strike votes and alter the certified winner of the 2020 presidential election.”

  2. Yeah yeah yeah. Now they’ll find some mentally diseased Federal judge who will toss the ruling because………………. IT FAVORED TRUMP. FUBAR!!!!!!!!

  3. What tripe . 
    Yes Cheating in one State
    affects  ALL THE OTHER STATES . 
    Detroit Michigan had a 302% voter participation rate . 
    Their Votes count 3 times as much as everyone else’s… 
    How about we say  Caught cheating and certifying results  with 125%  -300% voter participation 
    is being complicit with Election fraud …  Election fraud = Gitmo- 5 years for every Fraud ballot these liars certify .

  4. I think that a class action suit by citizens is what needs to be filed. The State as a whole may have been injured, but not all voter’s agree. Millions of voter’s need to file the suit because we were damaged. Someone run this by the attorneys.

  5. The left has been Carefully setting this farce of an election up for Years and have conducted (right under our noses) several test runs (ex. Hillary vs. Bernie 2016). They contracted with Dominion (a system they Knew they could manipulate for purposes of cheating). They manufactured a “pandemic” in order to usurp powers not belonging to them so that they could Unconstitutionally amend voting rules without due process and without the required public referendum. They instructed their minions tending the poling sites to DENY access to Republican pole watchers so that hundreds of Thousands of fraudulent votes could be “cast” away from watchful eyes. They manipulated the US Postal service (who, President Trump defunded) in order to have late ballots backdated and illegally delivered to Democrat controlled polling sites. They unleashed their Propaganda arm (called the “media”) to Totally control the Narrative on EVERY True story regarding the corruption of Joke Biden (Racketeering/Money Laundering/pay to play/Dementia/collusion/ohhhhh yea….and RAPE) in order to alter the election for President of the United States (that alone is High Treason!!! look it up libtards (fact). Can anyone say MILITARY TRIBUNALS to try Media Moguls and ALL involved in this Fraud for High Treason?? EVERY Patriotic American NEEDS to start calling for this tool to be unleashed. The time to Rise up Together fellow Patriots is upon us. Let JOKE biden and Camel Toe harris pretend they won for now. The game is afoot and FAR….FAR from over. Keep your Shields close at hand, your Swords sharpened and your minds and pens active. Remember: He who laughs Last, laughs Best. God Bless America. Oorah!!!

  7. I am confused. If it is up to the individual voter, not the county clerk, to determine whether they are indefinitely confined, shouldn’t their votes still be counted since they decided they were confined when they stated so in their voting paperwork?

  8. Just look up there Facebook accounts and you will see what their capacity is. We should get for than enough votes to overturn the state for Trump 🙏🇺🇸
