Democrats in the Midwestern swing state wanted officials to accept mail-in ballots for six days after the Nov. 3 election. The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled 5-3 that Wisconsin must keep its original rule requiring mail-in ballots to arrive by 8 p.m. on Election Day. A lower court judge had ordered the state to extend its deadline, but a federal appeals court overruled that decision. Justices Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor, and Stephen Breyer dissented.
