The Supreme Court on Monday denied an effort to extend mail-in voting in Wisconsin. All ballots in the state have to be received by Nov. 3 and they won't be counted if they're received later, even if they're postmarked on or before election day.

Democrats and voting rights groups had pushed for an extension, and they now say that the ruling could disenfranchise thousands. Wisconsin is a crucial swing state that Trump won by less than one percent in 2016. The news comes as Trump and Biden enter the final stretch of the 2020 campaign.

Here & Now's Peter O'Dowd speaks with NPR's Mara Liasson for more.
