“Federal appeals court could reinstate Wisconsin’s early voting limits”

Patrick Marley for the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

Three federal judges expressed deep skepticism Friday over claims that Wisconsin Republicans had deliberately made it harder for minorities to vote, raising the prospect they would reinstate limits on early voting.

Judge Frank Easterbrook of the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals said those challenging Wisconsin’s voting laws were contending that Democrats can expand voting rules to help their party at the polls but Republicans can’t tighten them to their advantage.

“That can’t be right,” he said during arguments in a pair of Wisconsin cases.
