What’s happening: Republicans in Michigan, New York, Wisconsin, Nevada, and Arizona have achieved crucial election integrity victories weeks from the November 8 midterm elections.

Restricting mail-in ballots: A Wisconsin judge ruled that incomplete addresses won’t be allowed on mail-in ballots, rejecting a lawsuit by a left-wing group after the Republican legislature intervened in the suit. A New York judge dealt a victory to Republican plaintiffs by ruling that the Democratic legislature cannot use a “perpetual” COVID-19 state of emergency to allow absentee voting.

Ballot-counting measures: The Nevada Supreme Court approved a rural county’s plan to hand-count all ballots in addition to counting by machine. A Republican county in Arizona voted to do the same despite the initial threat of legal action from Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, who is running for governor.

Big picture: Polling from Rasmussen this month shows that 55 percent of U.S. voters believe that fraud likely influenced the 2020 election. The mainstream media has spent nearly two years condemning this skepticism and doesn’t want it to persist into the midterms, portraying these concerns as paranoid and destructive. Nevertheless, the poll showed that 84 percent of voters believe that election integrity will be important for the midterms, and Republicans continue to fight for what they see as necessary policies.
