Back and Forth Over Election Boss

Back and Forth Over Election Boss

Republican lawmakers continue to try and force the state’s elections boss out of her job. 

The Senate Committee on Elections held an hours-long hearing yesterday to take a look at Meagan Wolfe’s performance as Elections Commission administrator.  A number of Republicans, and at least one Democratic senator, want Wolfe replaced because of how she handled the 2020 election.  It remains to be seen if the Senate can fire Wolfe. 

Elections commissioners have refused to formally nominate her for a second term, and both Wisconsin’s attorney general and some legislative lawyers say that means the Senate cannot vote her out.  Some local elections managers say pushing Wolfe out at this point will create nothing but chaos for next year’s elections.
