WI Supreme Court Rules On Ballots

The Wisconsin Supreme Court has ordered that no absentee ballots be mailed out until it gives approval or rules about who should be on the ballot The Thursday order comes in a lawsuit from by Green Party presidential candidate Howie Hawkins. He’s asked the court to take up his challenge of a state Elections Commission ruling keeping him off the ballot.  Local clerks have a September 17 deadline to mail ballots. The state’s chief elections officer, Meagan Wolfe, said any changes to the ballot after ballots go out would be problematic 

“It would be incredibly complicated and difficult. Once ballots go out, to change the ballots it would be incredibly, incredibly challenging to manage that process.” 

Rapper Kanye West is also trying to get on the ballot after the commission rejected him.
