Wisconsin Court Says Thousands Of Ballots May Not Be Counted Due To Election Officials’ False Interpretations

by Mike Santorini

On Monday, the Wisconsin Supreme Court announced that the state’s election officials falsely interpreted its “indefinitely confined” during the 2020 elections. Under the state’s law, a voter may receive a ballot by mail and bypass Wisconsin’s voter ID law if, by his own determination, concludes he “confined” based on age, physical illness, or infirmity.

This year’s election, around 215,000 voters in Wisconsin declared they were indefinitely confined, which is almost four times more than the number in 2016 election.

The court said that the state government’s interpretation of Wisconsin’s “indefinitely confined” was erroneous. “A county clerk may not “declare” that any elector is indefinitely confined due to a pandemic,” the court said. “The presence of a communicable disease such as COVID-19, in and of itself, does not entitle all electors [voters] in Wisconsin to obtain an absentee ballot,” it furthers stated.

The court also said that the lockdown orders do not meet the requirements under Wisconsin law to allow voters to claim the status of “indefinitely confined.”

In addition, the justices insisted that it’s the voter, not the county clerks or anybody else, who will decide if they qualify as indefinitely confined.

If these votes will be disqualified, then it could overturn Wisconsin’s 2020 presidential election results, where President Trump wins.
