MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Supreme Court on Monday rejected the Green Party presidential candidate's request to be added to the state ballot, ruling that it came too late for any relief "that would not cause confusion and undue damage" just seven weeks before the election.

The 4-3 ruling blocks a third-party candidacy that Democrats had feared could hurt Joe Biden in this narrowly divided battleground state. It also clears the way for local clerks to resume mailing absentee ballots to more than 1 million voters who have already requested one.
