Wisconsin Supreme Court keeps Green Party off ballot, boosts Biden

Wisconsin Supreme Court keeps Green Party off ballot, boosts Biden”

"We're right up against those deadlines and our clerks are working to get all those ballots out", said Meagan Wolfe of Wisconsin Elections Commission. The Green Party's lawsuit would have required ballots to be reprinted, making it hard for local elected officials to meet mandated deadlines for mailing out absentee ballots. The law, passed previous year by the Legislature, is the subject of multiple legal challenges, and many third-party candidates had not paid filing fees amid the pending litigation.

Between the pandemic and the Supreme Court ruling on Monday allowing already printed ballots to be mailed out, Kalan says she's never seen anything like it.

Wisconsin's elections commission in August had rejected signature petitions filed by Hawkins and his running mate, Angela Walker, because they showed two different addresses for Walker.

"We are working late so we can start mailing out absentee ballots first thing in the morning", the clerk's office tweeted Monday evening.

Had the court sided in favor of Hawkins, it would have meant printing and mailing almost 1 million new ballots that included the Green Party ahead of the state's September 17 deadline.

Due to a Texas Supreme Court (SCOTX) ruling, three Green Party candidates can reassume their places on the ballot after being previously removed due to a lower court's ruling. The signatures were challenged because Walker's address on some of the signature forms was not accurate.

Rapper Kanye West is also trying to get on the Wisconsin ballot.

Following a 4-3 ruling, the court said the Green Party's request to be included on Wisconsin's ballot fell too late in the election cycle. Hawkins was criticized for retaining a conservative law firm to appeal the decision of the Wisconsin Election Commission.

For most people voting absentee, Texas counties must receive completed ballots by Election Day. Absentee ballots must be received by 8 p.m. when polls close on Election Day.

"Today's decision means that municipal and county clerks should proceed with preparing, printing and sending absentee ballots in accordance with both federal law and Wisconsin state law", the commission said. Completed ballots from military or overseas voters are accepted if they're mailed by Election Day and received by November 9. The commission's Republican members wanted them on and Democratic members wanted them off, saying Ms.

Election officials had warned that forcing them to order more than 1 million ballots reprinted with Green Party's presidential candidate, Howie Hawkins' name would have caused mass confusion while calling into question whether new ballots could even be finished in time for the election.
