A federal appeals court has upheld Republican-authored limits on early voting.
Monday’s ruling by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals will allow 13 days of in-person absentee voting, starting two weeks before Election Day and ending no later than the Sunday before the election.

The appeals court ruling also reinstated several other Republican-backed laws, including a ban on faxing or emailing ballots to voters and a requirement that someone live at an address for at least 28 days to vote.

A lower court ruling that college students can use expired student IDs for voting was upheld.
