There is another push at the Wisconsin Capitol to end the state’s Elections Commission.
The latest plan comes from Senate elections committee chairman Dan Knodl and 10 Assembly Republicans. They want to get rid of the Elections Commission, and shift the power over election administration in Wisconsin to the Secretary of State. Republicans talked about a similar plan before last year’s elections, but dropped the proposal after Democrats won the Secretary of State’s seat. Other Republicans say they need to see the final details before committing to the idea. Governor Evers’ office yesterday made it clear he will veto any attempt to get rid of the Elections Commission.
