On Friday, Wisconsin’s Supreme Court banned the use of unmanned ballot drop boxes in elections.

The Daily Wire reports:

The court ruled 4-3 that voters could not turn their ballots into unmanned drop boxes and said that voters would not be allowed to give their ballots to others to drop off for them. The court said that voters would have the option to turn their ballots in-person or mail them in. Furthermore, drop boxes will not be used in the August primary or the general election.

“An absentee ballot must be returned by mail or the voter must personally deliver it to the municipal clerk at the clerk’s office or a designated alternative site,” the majority decision said.

The lawsuit, initiated by two Wisconsin voters, was brought against several entities including the Wisconsin Election Commission (WEC) and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Documents in question included guidance from the WEC on mail-in-ballots and voting. The lawsuit alleged that ballot drop boxes “causes doubts about the fairness of the elections and erodes voter confidence in the electoral process.”

The Court’s liberal-leaning justices claim the measure will make it more difficult for citizens to participate in elections.

Finally some real valuable action to make voter fraud more difficult. Unfortunately in some States it will be far more difficult to enforce such a common sense protection against voter fraud.

The headline and lede is incorrect. The Wisconsin State Supreme Court did not ban the use of unmanned drop boxes—Wisconsin law did. What the Supreme Court did is simply to enforce the law.

There are times when courts legislate from the bench, and they should be called out when they do, because that is abuse of power. As citizens we need to know the proper role of the courts and hold them to it. This headline and lede does the opposite.

The Court’s liberal-leaning justices claim the measure will make it more difficult for citizens to participate in elections. Perhaps what they meant to say instead of “participate” was what everyone is thinking “CHEAT”
