MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin Supreme Court has rejected a request by the Green Party presidential candidate to be added to the state's November ballot.

The ruling Monday clears the way for local clerks to resume mailing absentee ballots to more than 1 million voters who have requested one. The 4-3 order comes just seven weeks before the Nov. 3 presidential election in this narrowly divided state.

Democrats had feared that adding Howie Hawkins to the ballot would take votes away from Joe Biden and assist President Donald Trump. The Wisconsin Elections Commission had deadlocked twice on whether Hawkins and his running mate should be placed on the ballot.

Rapper Kanye West is also suing to be put on the Wisconsin ballot.
