The draconian voter suppression bill, SB 324, is now law after Gov. Scott Walker tweaked it to allow 10 more clerking hours during the two-week early voting window with no weekend hours.
The Republican-sponsored bill further shortened the absentee ballot season and what is viewed as an attempt to hinder voters in the big cities (read Democratic voters.)
However, given the harsh nature of the bill which restricts in-person absentee voting to one site per municipality during weekday hours in the week prior to the election there is a chance it could trigger a Section 2 lawsuit along with an injunction prior to the fall voting season.
That is just a hope at this point. I think there should be a backup plan, a Plan V, if you will.
The law allows for weekend voting by appointment. Appointment is not defined. The law does state that the applications be received personally by the municipal clerk, rather than an underling.
And the law confines the weekend voting to the weekend prior to the weekend before the election.
Okay, some of you see where I am going with this.
