RNC, Wisconsin GOP Join Lawsuit in State Supreme Court Banning Ballot Drop Boxes, Arguments Begin Monday


Recommended Posts



The Wisconsin Supreme Court will hold oral argument on Monday to decide whether election officials can reinstate secure ballot drop boxes for the 2024 election. 

At next week’s argument, the state Supreme Court’s majority-liberal bench will consider whether to overturn a July 2022 decision in Teigen v. Wisconsin Elections Commission, which resulted in a statewide prohibition on the use of drop boxes.

In Teigen, the court’s then-conservative majority held that drop boxes are unauthorized under Wisconsin law and concluded that voters may only return absentee ballots via mail or in person to a municipal clerk. “An inanimate object, such as a ballot drop box, cannot be the municipal clerk,” the opinion stated. :snip:
