MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Liberal justices who control the Wisconsin Supreme Court showed signs Monday of being willing to overturn a ruling that all but eliminated the use of absentee ballot drop boxes in the swing state. At issue is whether the court should overturn its July 2022 ruling that said nothing in state law allowed for absentee drop boxes to be placed anywhere other than in election clerk offices. Liberal Justice Jill Karofsky asked what the court should do if its earlier ruling “just got it wrong.” A reversal could have implications on what is expected to be another razor-thin presidential race in Wisconsin.
