Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren issued a summary judgment decision earlier this month on January 13th banning ballot dropboxes in the state.

Judge Bohren also ruled ballot harvesting was illegal in the state.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) issued memos to Wisconsin clerks in March and August of 2020 encouraging their use, stating that absentee ballots do not need to be mailed by the voter or delivered by the voter, in person, to the municipal clerk but instead could be dropped into a dropbox. According to WEC, ballot drop boxes can be unstaffed, temporary, or permanent.

This advice was contrary to state law.

Joe Biden won the state after a stunning drop of Biden-only ballots in the middle of the night following the election.

On Monday a state appeals court stayed Judge Bohren’s restrictions on the use of absentee ballot drop boxes.

FOX6 reported — The ruling meant election officials couldn’t place drop boxes anywhere but in clerks’ offices for the Feb. 15 spring primary elections, nullifying Democrats’ efforts to place the boxes in as many locations as possible to make voting more convenient and increase turnout.

Earlier today the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) planned an emergency session this evening. But following the court ruling and President Trump’s tweet on the attempts to reestablish dropboxes in the state the WEC canceled their meeting tonight.
