Bill for Postelection Audits

Bill for Postelection Audits

The bill would audit 4 randomly selected counties.

Earlier this week, the state Assembly passed a bill that requires postelection audits by the Legislative Audit Bureau. Under the bill, the Bureau would randomly select four counties, one of which must be in the top ten most populous, and from there select one city and one village from each of those counties for an audit after every general election. Bill author Representative Scott Allen, says, “Random, non-partisan post-election audits are a proven method for building trust in our election processes.”

Audits are designed to demonstrate legitimacy. If our elections are fair, there’s no need for anyone to fear an audit. The Senate passed this bill earlier; so it’s headed to the governor soon. The governor signing this bill would send a really positive signal to Wisconsin voters.
