Leftie Judge in Wisconsin Alters Election Law — Rules Indefinitely Confined Voters Can Download Ballots Online without a Voter ID

As The Gateway Pundit reported in November 2020, the total number of “indefinitely confined” voters, or Express Votes ballots for individuals with disabilities, skyrocketed from around 60,000 in 2016 to over 240,000 in 2020.

The number of indefinitely confined voters in Wisconsin soared from 6% of total voters in 2016 to 11% of total voters in 2020.

No photo ID is required in Wisconsin for indefinitely confined voters.

A local Madison news outlet reported on the ‘indefinitely confined’ ballots from the 2020 election:

These voters are not required to show proof of a photo ID to vote absentee if they apply for a certification declaring them indefinitely confined whether it be due to age, physical illness, infirmity or they are disabled for an indefinite period.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) does not allow using the confined status as a way to avoid using a photo ID, instead, it’s an option thousands more voters used this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

They don’t have to show a photo ID but it does not exempt them from voter registration, signing their absentee certificate and having a witness on their absentee ballot,” said Meagan Wolfe, Wisconsin’s chief election official.

The MacIver Institute has more:

The total number of indefinitely confined voters in Wisconsin now stands at 243,900. Last year, the total number was only 72,000. That is an increase of 238% in just over a year.

Those voters enjoy a special perk when requesting an absentee ballot – they are exempt for the state’s voter ID law.

Wisconsin officials blamed COVID for the surge in indefinitely confined voters in the state.

Democrats know this is an optimal way that allows them to cheat.

Now, a far-left judge from Dane County ruled that disabled Wisconsin voters can request and download electronic ballots,

The New York Post reported:

A Dane County Circuit Court judge who once said people who steal from big-box stores shouldn’t be prosecuted ruled that disabled Wisconsin voters can request and download electronic ballots, a change that could cause election-administration problems in the battleground state this November.

Judge Everett Mitchell, who also serves as a pastor in Madison and ran for state Supreme Court last year — losing in a four-way primary — issued a temporary injunction last week covering the Nov. 5 election, effectively modifying a portion of the election-administration landscape in a state that struggled with absentee-ballot tabulation in the last presidential election.

Voters with print disabilities who self-certify they cannot read or complete a ballot without assistance can request electronic ballots from their election clerks, which they can complete with the use of assistive technology and mail back, thanks to the injunction.
