GAME CHANGER: Wisconsin Supreme Court Rules Ballot Drop Boxes Widely Used In 2020 Election Are Illegal

(Rallying Patriots) – The Wisconsin Supreme Court delivered an epic smackdown Friday to Democrats who might have been hoping they could once again take advantage of absentee ballots as a means of rigging an election in their favor in the all-important swing state.

According to The Western Journal, the court ruling places heavy limits on the use of ballot drop boxes and also states that voters cannot give their completed absentee ballots to someone else to return. It seems at least one state is taking voter fraud somewhat seriously.

The report noted that the court’s decision is being considered a huge victory for Republicans who have been making the case that unmonitored ballot drop boxes may have played a significant role in facilitating voter fraud during the last presidential election.

Wisconsin has long employed the use of ballot drop boxes, however, back in 2020, election clerks expanded their use on a large scale, according to a report from The Washington Post.

“By the time the November presidential election rolled around, there were more than 500 drop box locations throughout the state,” the Western Journal reported. “The new ruling ensured that won’t happen again, however, with the court saying in its opinion that ‘ballot drop boxes are illegal under Wisconsin statutes.'”

The state supreme court then banned the practice known as “ballot harvesting,” stating that voters have to return their absentee ballots themselves.

“The key phrase is ‘in person’ and it must be assigned its natural meaning,” Justice Rebecca Bradley went on to say for the majority in the court’s ruling.

Bradley then stated that the law in Wisconsin doesn’t allow for the use of drop boxes anywhere other than within election clerk offices, the only power available to change that policy resides with the state Legislature.

While this is most certainly good news, the decision barely passed with a vote of 4-3.

“Some citizens will cheer this result; others will lament,” Justice Brian Hagedorn went on to write in a concurring opinion. “But the people of Wisconsin must remember that judicial decision-making and politics are different under our constitutional order. Our obligation is to follow the law, which may mean the policy result is undesirable or unpopular. Even so, we must follow the law anyway.”

“The case began last year when the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty filed a lawsuit over the use of ballot drop boxes on behalf of two suburban Milwaukee men, Richard Teigen and Richard Thom,” the report said.

The lawsuit made an argument stating that the use of drop boxes “causes doubts about the fairness of the elections and erodes voter confidence in the electoral process.”

That’s absolutely true. Especially when there was a massive amount of evidence that ballot harvesting and tampering with drop boxes was presented not only in Wisconsin, but across the country. We all know that voter fraud, to some degree, exists in this country. However, it hit an all-time high in 2020. Significant damage has been done to voter confidence as a result. This is just a teeny, tiny step toward rectifying that problem.

It then stated that Teigen and Thom “are entitled to have the elections in which they participate administered properly under the law.”

Back in January of this year, Waukesha County Circuit Judge Michael Bohren ruled in their favor.

“Bohren concluded that state law did not allow for unstaffed ballot drop boxes and instead required absentee voters to return ballots in person or mail their ballots themselves,” the Western Journal reported.

This decision comes a month before the primary elections on Aug. 9 for the midterms are due to be held in Wisconsin.

If all of these “woke” people say there’s 130 different sexes when we KNOW there are only two, then I can understand how difficult it is to interpret words on a piece of paper that say a very specific thing which is easily understood, but the Progressives want to complicate the simple for their bastardized purposes. The bottom line is, if you want to upend the system, then you’re going to complicate that which is not complicated, throw as many monkey wrenches into it as possible and see how close you came to doing what you intended to do. “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” Proverbs 23:7
