Federal Appeals Court Hands Republicans Win On Elections

A panel of federal judges from the 7th U-S Circuit Court of Appeals has given Republicans most of what they wanted in a ruling issued Monday.

The vote was unanimous to reinstate limits on early voting and ban most voters from having absentee ballots emailed or faxed to them. Many of Wisconsin’s election laws were struck down by a lower court judge four years ago when he found they affected the ability of minorities to vote disproportionately. The court heard arguments on the case more than three years ago and hasn’t said why the ruling took so long.
