Supreme Court Strikes Down Dems Attempt To Extend Mail-In Voting In Key Battleground State

 Democrats have relentlessly pushed mass mail-in voting across the country, using the COVID-19 pandemic as a fear-mongering weapon to scare people into staying away from the voting booth come November 3.

Adding to that, Democrat-run groups in many states — including ultra-important battleground states that could flip the presidential race one way or the other — have fought to extend the number of days that counties have to count the mail-in ballots, with several states winning their cases for extensions in court.

But according to NBC News, that’s not going to be the case in Wisconsin, as the U.S. Supreme Court struck a huge blow against Democrats on Tuesday by ruling that late extensions for mail-in ballots will not be granted in The Badger state.

Several groups, including voting rights groups, the League of Women Voters and Democratic parties at both the state and local level were part of the lawsuit to extend the deadline past election day.

In a 5-3 SCOTUS ruling, mail-in ballots can only be counted in the hotly-contested state if they are received by election day.

Democrats were hoping to be granted a staggering six-day extension for mail-in votes to be counted. Democrats in Wisconsin were hoping for a similar outcome as Pennsylvania experienced last week, with the High Court ruling that granted an extension for counting mail-in votes after election day.

So, why is there a difference in rulings for the same issue? According to CNN, it has to do with which court made the first ruling. In Pennsylvania’s case, the state’s highest court ruled in favor of extensions and the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the ruling.

Wisconsin, on the other hand, resulted in a different outcome as the original ruling to allow an extension was made by a lower federal court. An appeals court blocked the lower court’s ruling and because of that, the Supreme Court sided with the Appeals Court to uphold the block.

“Different bodies of law and different precedents govern these two situations and require, in these particular circumstances, that we allow the modification of election rules in Pennsylvania but not Wisconsin,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote.

Not surprisingly, the liberal judges on the court were not happy with the ruling, even resorting to using COVID-19 fear-mongering in dramatic fashion to slam the court’s ruling. Justice Elena Kagan wrote that “the Court has failed to adequately protect the Nation’s voters,” during the pandemic.

At this point, it’s not a secret as to why Democrats are moving mountains in an attempt to extend mail-in voting deadlines across the country — they’re attempting to give their weak and frail presidential candidate every possible advantage.

They’ve spent the last six months using COVID-19 to scare their party into mass, mail-in voting and are now realizing that perhaps they should have taken a different approach, especially as extensions are struck down by the courts.
