Waukesha County Judge Hits Democrats HUGE: Bans Wisconsin Absentee Mailboxes
Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren issued a summary judgment decision Thursday banning ballot boxes in the state. Judge Bohren also banned illegal vote collecting in the state.
The Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) issued memoranda to Wisconsin employees in March and August 2020 encouraging their use, stating that absentee ballots do not need to be mailed by the voter or delivered by the voter, in person, to the city clerk, but could be placed in a mailbox instead. According to WEC, polls can be unstaffed, temporary, or permanent.
This advice was against state law.
Joe Biden won the state after a stunning drop in exclusive votes for Biden in the middle of the night after the election.

The Wisconsin Institute of Law and Liberty reported.
NewsWaukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren issued a summary sentencing decision, in court, which states that absentee ballot boxes and ballot collection are not allowed under state law. Judge Bohren also ruled that the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) guidance documents on absentee ballot boxes, issued in 2020, should have gone through the rules process.
The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL) filed a lawsuit on behalf of two Waukesha County voters in June 2021 challenging the legal status of absentee ballot boxes after WEC issued an illegal guide to employees, in 2020, encouraging the use of absentee ballot delivery and telling voters that anyone else can return their ballot for them.
The phraseWILL’s associate attorney, Luke Berg, said: “The Wisconsin Elections Commission’s guidance on absentee ballot boxes was illegal. There are only two legal methods for casting an absentee ballot in Wisconsin: by mail or in person at the clerk’s office. And voters must return their own ballots. We are pleased that the court has made this clear, giving Wisconsin voters certainty for the upcoming elections. “
Bottom: Absentee ballot boxes were widely used during the 2020 Wisconsin elections. The Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) issued memoranda to Wisconsin employees in March and August 2020 encouraging their use, stating that ballots in Absences need not be mailed by the voter or delivered by the voter, in person, to the city clerk, but could instead be left in a mailbox. According to WEC, polls can be unstaffed, temporary, or permanent.
This advice was against state law. Voting is a constitutional right, but state law makes it clear that “absentee voting is a privilege that is exercised entirely outside of traditional polling place guarantees.” There are only two legal ways in Wisconsin to send an absentee ballot. When voting by absentee ballot, state law says “[t]the envelope [containing the ballot] it will be mailed by the voter, or delivered in person, to the municipal clerk who issues the ballot or ballots. “
