A U.S. federal appeals court has upheld a ruling allowing Wisconsin’s absentee ballots in the November general election to be counted if they arrive up to six days after Election Day.
The panel of three judges, all appointed by Republican presidents, agreed with a September lower court ruling that said if the ballots are postmarked by November 3, they can be accepted for counting as long as they arrive by November 9.
The Republican National Committee and Wisconsin Republicans argued against allowing the deadline extension and could appeal Tuesday’s ruling. They said voters had plenty of time to obtain and return an absentee ballot by Election Day.
Wisconsin Democrats welcomed the court’s decision and said it would give more people in the state an opportunity to “have their voices heard in this election.”

A federal appeals court on Sunday temporarily halted a six-day extension for counting absentee ballots in Wisconsin’s presidential election, a momentary victory for Republicans and President Donald Trump in the key presidential battleground state.
As it stands, ballots will now be due by 8 p.m. on Election Day. A lower court judge had sided with Democrats and their allies to extend the deadline until Nov. 9. Democrats sought more time as a way to help deal with an expected historic high number of absentee ballots.
The Democratic National Committee, the state Democratic Party and allied groups including the League of Women Voters sued to extend the deadline for counting absentee ballots after the April presidential primary saw long lines, fewer polling places, a shortage of workers and thousands of ballots mailed days after the election.
Democrats are stealing the 2020 election.
Two trays of US mail was discovered in a ditch near Greenville, a rural area north of Appleton, Wisconsin.
According to local officials the mail included mail-in ballots.
The USPS unions support Joe Biden.
A U.S. Postal Service investigation is underway after mail was found along the road in the Fox Valley.
The Outagamie County Sheriff’s Office says three trays were found in a ditch around 8 a.m. Tuesday. The trays were near the intersection of highways 96 and CB, near the Appleton International Airport.
The mail was immediately turned over to the postal service.
On Wednesday, a USPS spokesman said the mail included absentee ballots.

Kyle Rittenhouse legally possessed a firearm last Tuesday in Wisconsin, said John Pierce, an attorney representing Kyle Rittenhouse, offering his remarks in an interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Sunday with host Joel Pollak.
Rittenhouse was arrested last Wednesday and charged with murder in the shooting deaths of two people during the previous night’s riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Pollak asked how Rittenhouse obtained a firearm.
“Wisconsin is an open carry state,” replied Pierce. “You’ve seen the video of what was going on in that city. It was a war zone, and Kyle had every right — just as much a right — to be there as the people that were trying to burn down that city, and he was attempting to protect property and attempting to be there to provide medical aid.”

Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources employees were told they must wear a face mask during at-home Zoom calls to ‘set a good example.’
Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers issued a statewide mandatory mask mandate on August 1, but people are not required to wear a face covering in their own homes.
The head of Wisconsin’s DNR sent an email to employees reminding them that they must always wear a face mask, even while on a Zoom call.
A teachers’ union out of Milkwaukee, Wisconsin erected mock gravestones of students to scare kids from returning to school over the coronavirus.
The Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association (MTEA) in partnership with a far-left group called Leaders Igniting Transformation, placed several fake tombstones on school grounds as part of a “National Day of Resistance” to keep kids out of school unless their demands are met.
One such tombstone reads, “RIP Grandma, caught COVID helping grandkids with homework.”
The MTEA’s Facebook page also includes a list of radical far-left demands they insist must be met before schools reopen.
Among the demands are socialist Democrat Party platform proposals, including no police in schools, moratorium on evictions, welfare, and banning charter schools.
“Join LIT and MTEA in solidarity for this National Day of Resistance as we demand safe, healthy, and equitable schools and communities!” the page states.
Wisconsin this week is joining the growing number of states to issue a mandatory face mask order to counter the media-stoked fears about rising COVID-19 cases.
The order, signed by Democratic Governor Tony Evers, declared a “Public Health Emergency and issued an Emergency Order requiring individuals to wear face coverings when indoors and not in a private residence, with some exceptions as clarified and defined in the order.”
Effective August 1, the order argues that widespread mask wearing is essential to curtail the spread of coronavirus.
Said Evers: “While our local health departments have been doing a heck of a job responding to this pandemic in our communities, the fact of the matter is, this virus doesn’t care about any town, city, or county boundary, and we need a statewide approach to get Wisconsin back on track.
“We’ve said all along that we’re going to let science and public health experts be our guide in responding to this pandemic, and we know that masks and face coverings will save lives. While I know emotions are high when it comes to wearing face coverings in public, my job as governor is to put people first and to do what’s best for the people of our state, so that’s what I am going to do.”

Some 400 National Guard troops have been activated in the nation’s capital to protect historical monuments from vandalism, following a failed attempt by protesters to topple a statue of Andrew Jackson near the White House.
The guardsmen, who would be unarmed if deployed, were placed on standby Wednesday afternoon as heated demonstrations against police brutality and racism rage on around the country, driving calls for the removal of statues and monuments protesters see as celebrating slavery and other historical abuses.
“The District of Columbia National Guard has sent unarmed troops to guard monuments and other infrastructure in support of local law enforcement agencies,” said Craig Clapper, spokesperson for the DC National Guard.
The GOP clinched major victories in two special elections held on Tuesday but was largely ignored by the mainstream media.
Mike Garcia managed to flip California’s 25th District, becoming the first Republican to do that in the state since 1998. Garcia, a former Navy combat pilot, was declared the winner on Wednesday after his Democratic challenger, state assemblywoman Christy Smith, conceded the race. The congressional seat was previously held by Rep. Katie Hill, who resigned last year.
Both Garcia and Smith will face off again in November.
Wisconsin state senator Tom Tiffany was able to maintain the GOP’s control over the state’s conservative-leaning 7th district left vacant by Rep. Sean Duffy.
Footage posted to Facebook on Sunday shows a pair of Wisconsin police officers outside a woman’s home because she “violated a state order” by allowing her daughter to play at a neighbor’s house.
The video begins with Calumet County Sheriff’s Deputy Matthew Eberhardt sarcastically asking the mother if she’s aware that the state is under a “stay-at-home” order.
After telling the officers she is aware of the order, the mother asked why they are at her house.
“Because your daughter is going to play at other people’s home and you’re allowing it to happen,” Eberhardt explained, adding, “Stop having your kid go by other people’s home!”
“Okay,” she responded.
