(The Center Square) – Wisconsin voters with disabilities are eligible to vote via electronic absentee ballots starting this November, a judge ruled Wednesday.

In Disability Rights Wisconsin v. Wisconsin Elections Commission, Dane County Circuit Court Judge Everett Mitchell ruled in favor of DRW, issuing a temporary injunction that allows disabled voters to fill out ballots at home electronically.

Although clerks will email the ballots to these voters, voters must print out their electronically filled ballots and mail them back to clerks. Wisconsin voters in the military serving overseas already use this method.

The Wisconsin Election Commission argued the changes would decrease election security because of such short notice to Wisconsin clerks, The Center Square previously reported. DRW had argued the changes were necessary to ensure citizens with disabilities have equal access to voting.
