    "Supreme Court sides with Trump, blocks Wisconsin ballot extension…

    The Supreme Court on Monday evening voted 5-3 against Democrats who were pushing to extend the deadline for counting absentee ballots in Wisconsin by six days in order to provide the state more time to deal with the surge in mail-in voting caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.



    The decision, announced in an order, came eight days before Election Day. Wisconsin is a key battleground state in the battle between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden. As a result of the Supreme Court’s decision, ballots will have to be delivered by 8 p.m. on Nov. 3 to be counted.



    The court’s eight justices divided along partisan lines, with the court’s three Democratic-appointees in dissent. The order, which came amid a flurry of election-related disputes that are making their way to the justices, was released as the Senate voted 52-48 to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Barrett’s confirmation gives conservatives a 6-3 majority.



    The top court’s order followed a ruling from District Court Judge William Conley last month extending the state’s absentee ballot counting deadline in response to a suit from the Democratic National Committee and its allies. Conley cited the unusually high number of ballots cast by mail as well as delays with the Postal Service.

    Reduces the number of phony ballots the Dems will "suddenly" find.

    A small victory for honest elections. Don

    I don’t think so. It’s like requiring your daughter to be home by 10 instead of midnight to prevent her from being deflowered, they’ll just start sooner.

    if you are a Supreme Court Justice, it may be in your favor to see a Trump victory, 1 of 9 is deemed more important than 1 of 13 or more...

    I don't see how that "Sides with Trump". They ruled on an issue, and I suspect based on it's merits, the law, and the Constitution.

    You’ve answered your own question! This ruling is “for Trump” since ruling against the merits, law and the constitution IS ruling AGAINST Trump!

    Pretty simple, really.
