MADISON–A Wisconsin federal judge who extended voter registration two weeks ago, has ruled that municipal clerks cannot release election results until April 13, one week after Election Day.

U.S. District Judge William Conley on Thursday extended absentee ballot request to 5 p.m. on April 3, and on Friday extended the return of ballots to April 13 by 4 p.m. In person voting was not extended, and is still slated for April 7.

The Wisconsin Election Commission petitioned the court to move the date of election results and absentee votes in an effort to get residents to mail in their ballot.
