On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Wisconsin absentee ballots must be in the hand of local clerks by 8 pm on November 3rd in order to be counted.

In Tuesday's episode of Civil Dialogue, WisconsinEye’s Steve Walters asked Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler if this ruling puts the Democratic Party at a disadvantage.

Republican Party of Wisconsin Chair Andrew Hitt was asked why his party took issue with the initial order, which allowed for a ballot to be counted up to November 9th if it is postmarked on November 3rd.
