Lawmakers Talk Texts

Lawmakers Talk Texts

Wisconsin lawmakers are going to take the next step forward with their plan that could have election managers send people texts when they get absentee ballots.

The Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections will hold a hearing tomorrow on the plan that would have the states elections commission send voters texts when they request an absentee ballot, and when they return their absentee ballot. Supporters say the idea is to provide better customer service for absentee voters, and provide a level of election integrity. The plan has support from both Republicans and Democrats at the Capitol, though no one has asked the governor what he thinks of it yet.
