On Wednesday the State Legislature’s Joint Committee for Review of Administrative Rules voted to suspend the Wisconsin Election Commission’s emergency rule that would have allowed clerks to take action to correct missing information on absentee ballot certificate envelopes instead of returning such envelopes to the voters for correction as state law clearly states. The Elections Commission also recently lost its case before the Wisconsin Supreme Court related to the guidance it gave clerks that encouraged the use of drop boxes in previous elections.
With this vote in the legislative committee, the state legislature is beginning to appropriately rein in the Elections Commission. No state agency is above the law, and with our fall elections just weeks away, these issues must be cleared up. Unfortunately, the elections commission has a bad track record of doing what it wants in spite of court decisions or legislative action.
