BREAKING: Supreme Court blocks extended absentee deadline

absentee ballot

Madison (WQOW) - Just over an hour after ruling Tuesday's election would go on as planned, the United States Supreme Court is saying you need to get your absentee ballots in, and soon.

According to the Associated Press, absentee ballots must be postmarked by Tuesday, April 7 to be counted.

That means if you asked to vote absentee but did not get your ballot yet you will need to vote in-person on Tuesday.

A deadline of April 13 had been set last week as an extension to get the ballots mailed in.
