April 7 Election, April 13 Results

Despite pressure to postpone, Governor Evers remains firm on a April 7 election date for Wisconsin. But on Thursday, U.S. District Judge William Conley threw in a caveat: absentee votes received before 4 p.m. on April 13 will now count. Effectively, this now makes April 13 election day. See his order here.

The Republican Party of Wisconsin has appealed the ruling to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, asking for a stay on the order.

With Biden all but locking in the Democratic nomination, the Wisconsin Supreme Court race has taken center stage, pitting the textualist incumbent Justice Dan Kelly against Dane County Circuit Judge Jill Karofsky. So far, more than 1 million people have requested absentee ballots, breaking all previous state records.
