During the April election, Wisconsin forced people to choose between their health and their right to vote. The heartbreaking stories from voters who never received their absentee ballots or stood for hours outside of crowded polling places make it clear that we can never again allow this mistake to be repeated.
At last week's meeting, the Wisconsin Election Commission (WEC) reviewed the results from the April 7 election and began to plan how to best serve all Wisconsinites with an improved election process. One proposal uses funds from the Federal CARES Act to mail absentee ballot applications to all registered voters.
The WEC will vote on this proposal and many others early this week, and it is extremely important that they hear your voice in support of mailing absentee ballot applications to ALL registered voters.
This proposal would not require an all-mail election, but it would go a long way toward ensuring every Wisconsin voter knows their options for safely casting a ballot in the upcoming August and November elections. Having the Wisconsin Elections Commission implement this process will provide a consistent statewide process, and will also be more cost-effective than a fragmented local approach.
