As the tensions mount between Governor Tony Evers and the Republican leadership of the State Legislature, Evers this afternoon made the unprecedented move of suspending in-person voting in tomorrow's election, and again trying to call the legislature into Special Session tomorrow. Evers last week had called the legislature into Special Session on Saturday, but lawmakers adjourned the session within seconds of beginning.

Through Executive Order #74, in-person voting for tomorrow's election, April 7, has been suspended, and moved to June 9th. There is still a possibility that the legislature convenes tomorrow to take up a number of bills proposed by Evers, one of which would allow for absentee voting to continue until May, when the votes would be tallied and results would be released.

In a statement immediately following the Governor's actions, Republicans who control the State Legislature said:

"We are immediately challenging this executive order in the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

"The clerks of this state should stand ready to proceed with the election. The governor's executive order is clearly an unconstitutional overreach.

"This is another last minute flip-flop from the governor on the April 7th election. The governor himself has repeatedly acknowledged he can't move the election. Just last week a federal judge said he did not have the power to cancel the election and Governor Evers doesn't either. Governor Evers can't unilaterally run the state."

UPDATE: At about 5:20PM, the Wisconsin Supreme Court reinstated tomorrow's election in a 4-2 ruling by undoing the emergency order Governor Tony Evers issued earlier in the afternoon. Justice Daniel Kelly abstained from this decision, as he is on the ballot in tomorrow's election.
