Description

The corona virus death toll is unbelievably high. Yet in the midst of this CoVid19 pandemic Wisconsin residents had to vote in their State's primary election with no delay. As of the primary election date of April 7, 2020, Wisconsin had 2,500 confirmed cases and 85 deaths, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. Governor Tony Evers gave the order to the delay the primary election as the pandemic intensified; however, the State Supreme Court overturned it. To compound the matter, the United States Supreme Court declared that absentee ballots were due on the same day as the election. While other states were delaying primary elections to keep their residents safe, the Wisconsin court system and the U.S. Supreme Court were playing politics with the lives of the people.
