The one in Nevada didn't get the memo either.

Good.

Yeah, drag thins thing as long as possible. Trump's still going to lose. He doesn't have Russia on his side this time.

Judges everywhere finding this an easy call to make.

Ah, one of the few Obama appointees.  Just proving to the GOP and Mitch McConnell specifically how essential it is for Trump to appoint as many justices as possible.

This is still not going to make me like Packer fans.

If you step back and think about this it's a perfect match.  Vikings fans bring the purple and horny, and the packers bring the holy cheese, or cheesy hole, or whatever you green suited bastards call it, and that's legally love isn't it?

Oh yes he does, but everyone knows it now.

It will probably go the state supreme court, and it will be overturned.

How would a Federal District ruling be appealed to a state court?

Hookers and linebackers come from Green Bay.  Discount this to your detriment.

Because it is 2020, and Wisconsin. Those two together somehow finds a way.

At least if the judges hand out these sweeping judgements they could at least dictate the terms of spoiled ballots.  It would be nice to know the full terms from the get go instead of waiting untill Dec for that... We all know that is going to be a fight with each state argument being differing depending which terms help both litigious candidate.

Those who request absentee ballots but don't receive them in time to cast them will be able to get replacement ballots via email or through a website, Conley ruled. Usually, most voters must have absentee ballots physically delivered to them.

Eballots?  Sure make up a whole new system.   This will be fine

Wisconsin  Statute  §  6.86 (1) (a) 6 already allows ballots to be sent by email.  The judge is extending the due date, not making up a whole new system.

Don't confuse him with facts or the law. It would spoil an amusing rant.

The constitution only indicates that it's up to states to determine how voting is conducted.  If a state passes voting laws that risk votes not being counted, it makes sense for judges to step in and correct that, but instead if extending deadlines they should mandate earlier deadlines before the national election.

This year is exceptional, though. But making sure every vote is counted is the priority.

I think even some conservative judges are getting tired of his schtick. And these guys don't have to worry about reelection.

A Michigan judge made a similar ruling. I'm glad these rulings are being put in place now, but with states like Michigan and Wisconsin allowing the counting deadline, I do fear the crap Trump will try to pull in the week after the election before all the votes are counted. As it becomes more clear that he's losing,  he's going to become even more unhinged. Be prepared to vote, know where and when your ballot has to be turned in, and then buckle up.

I'm pretty sure that's Trump's plan.  Tie everything up in court so states can't certify their results in the hopes that the House has to pick the president - each state gets one vote and there are more states with Republican representatives than there are with Dem representatives, even though the Dems hold the majority overall

Since Russia prefers chaos in the USA, they probably hope Trumps wins on election day, declares himself winner, and then loses once the absentee ballots are counted.
