A justice of the Wisconsin Supreme Court threw Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s words back at a conservative lawyer urging the court to keep absentee ballot drop boxes illegal.

Wisconsin’s top court heard oral arguments Monday in a lawsuit in which a progressive super PAC is seeking to undo the state’s prohibition on absentee ballot drop boxes. The appeal seeks to overturn a recent decision disallowing drop boxes made when the court had a different ideological makeup.

In 2022, the Wisconsin Supreme Court, which had a conservative majority at the time, banned the use of ballot drop boxes. The author of the majority opinion was Justice Rebecca Grassl Bradley, who said that the “illegality” of drop boxes “weakens the people’s faith that the election produced an outcome reflective of their will.”
