Wisconsin lawmakers want to tighten-up the voter ID rules for absentee voters and limit the use of ballot dropboxes, but Governor Evers is saying ‘No.’
The governor yesterday promised to veto any of the election reform laws that come from the Republican-controlled legislature. The governor says he doesn’t want to make it more difficult for anyone in the state to vote. Republican state Senator Duey Stroebel, who wrote many of the reforms, says lawmakers are simply trying to level the playing field. Republicans say the loose rules around absentee voting and dropboxes created uncertainty during last year’s November election.
