The latest proposal from Wisconsin Republicans would fix what they say are the worst of the problems from the November election. But adoption of those reforms is unlikely.
“Public confidence in our elections is at a crisis point,” Stoebel said in a statement Tuesday.All of the proposals deal with specific complaints from Republicans about the November 2020 election.
The Wisconsin Elections Commission reported that more people cast an indefinitely confined ballot in November than ever before. The WEC said nearly 250,000 people cast an indefinitely confined ballot in November, and that 80% showed voter ID within the past four years.
President Biden won Wisconsin by about 20,000 votes. Republican lawmakers say that’s half the number of indefinitely confined ballots that came in without voter ID.
“The actions of the Wisconsin Elections Commission and some local election officials, through conflicting guidance, ignorance of the law, and a refusal to abide by the plain language of statutes, led to electoral chaos,” Stroebel added. “These bills are about restoring confidence in our elections.”
