    I'm curious as to how this happened. My guess is that Kavanagh is relying on the briefing in front of him. There likely hasn't been a formal change to Vermont statute and perhaps formal regulatory language had not been updated when the opinion was written. While I don't care to look up the opinion, I also wonder if there is a broader context that is more important than minor details. Dicta does not make an opinion.

    Kavanaugh said this in 2018.

    The current situation is mail in voting in Vermont for this 2020 election.

    The article presents Kavanaugh's statement as if he said it for this year's election.

    I'm confused as to what the article in question is saying.

    The case was about extending the deadline of the receipt of absentee voting. The paragraph that was highlighted about Vermont had nothing to do with the deadline - which the case was about.

    Here is a link to the opinion since these articles never do that so you can read it for yourself. Red flags always wave for me when they don't link to the subject itself that they claim is wrong.

    Approximately 30 States, including Wisconsin, require
    that absentee ballots be received by election day in order to
    be counted. Like most States, Wisconsin has retained that
    deadline for the November 2020 election, notwithstanding
    the COVID–19 pandemic. In advance of the November election, however, a Federal District Court in Wisconsin unilaterally changed the State’s deadline for receipt of absentee
    ballots. Citing the pandemic, the court extended the deadline for receipt of absentee ballots by six days—from election day, November 3, to November 9, so long as the ballots
    are postmarked on or before election day, November 3.
    The Seventh Circuit stayed the District Court’s injunction, ruling that the District Court had violated this Court’s
    precedents in two fundamental ways: first, by changing
    state election rules too close to an election; and second, by
    usurping the state legislature’s authority to either keep or
    make changes to state election rules in light of the pandemic.

    Above is a cut and paste about the issues of this ruling.

    An illustration of the logic employed by the OP when choosing to post this article:

    Kavanaugh was appointed by Trump, Twump is baaaaaaaad, therefore whatever is said about Kavanaugh which serves to make Twump look baaaaaaaad must be true.
