Vote Set for New Rules on Absentee Ballots

Wisconsin’s election managers should have new rules for absentee ballots by the end of next week.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission is looking to vote next week on how to abide by a judge’s ruling that absentee ballot witness slips don’t need a full address in order to be counted. The judge from Dane County ruled earlier this month that witness slips can be missing things like full zip codes or town names and still be counted as a valid ballot. Republicans at the Wisconsin Capitol worry an overly broad interpretation of the judge’s ruling could open up an opportunity for fraud.
