U.S. Supreme Court [denies review of 7th Circuit ruling enjoining] extension in Wisconsin mail-in ballot deadline
In a 2-1 ruling, a three-judge panel of the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals blocked [US district court]'s earlier ruling allowing a six-day extension in the ballot-receipt deadline.

DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE, ET AL. v. WISCONSIN STATE LEGISLATURE, ET AL.
(SWENSON, JILL, ET AL. V. WI STATE LEGISLATURE, ET AL first instance)
APPLICATION TO VACATE STAY, majority rational (JJ. Kavanaugh) for denying DNC review of 7th cir, 26 Oct
This Court has consistently stated that the Constitution principally entrusts politically accountable state legislatures, not unelected federal judges, with the responsibility to address the health and safety of the people during the COVID-19 pandemic.

REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE, et al. v. DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE, et al.
PER CURIAM granting ltd stay of district ct injunction; minority rational (JJ. Kagan) for denying RNC application, 6 Apr
Election officials have spent the past few days establishing procedures and informing voters in accordance with the District Court's deadline. For this Court to upend the process--a day before the April 7 postmark deadline--is sure to confound election officials and voters.
