Democratic Judge in Wisconsin extends absentee ballot deadline 6 additional days…


When normal deadlines don’t fit into your agenda… Apparently you can just chance the rules to fit the bill.

A Federal judge in Wisconsin on Monday ordered the state’s absentee ballot receipt deadline for November’s election be extended, the latest win for Democrats in an attempt to better their chances of winning in key election battleground states.

The judge ruled the deadline would be extended to Nov. 9 for all ballots mailed and postmarked on or before the Nov. 3 Election Day, adding the order was stayed for one week to allow for an appeal.
