On April 6, 2020, the Wisconsin State Supreme Court voted 4-2 to enjoin an executive order issued earlier in the day by Governor Tony Evers (D) postponing in-person voting in the spring election, scheduled for April 7, 2020, to June 9, 2020. As a result, in-person voting is expected to take place as scheduled on April 7, 2020. Republican lawmakers filed the lawsuit seeking the injunction.
On April 3, Evers had issued an executive order calling on the legislature to convene in a special session to consider postponing the spring election. The legislature convened on April 4 and adjourned without taking action on the governor’s proposal.
