Election reform group continues push

The Wisconsin Voters Alliance is encouraging Republican lawmakers to continue their fight for election reforms. The conservative organization was created earlier this year to address private money being used by public election officials last fall. It also went to the Wisconsin Supreme Court earlier this month to challenge the results of the November election, citing thousands of pieces of evidence it has collected alleging voter fraud. The Wisconsin Supreme Court declined to take the case in a 4-3 decision. The organization filed another lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Washington D.C. last week challenging the election results in five states including Wisconsin. Two current state assembly members and one candidate running for Rep. John Nygren’s former seat have also signed on. WVA President and Kewaunee County Republican Party Chairperson Ron Heuer says they do not plan on stopping until they are able to get election reforms addressed like private money being used for elections and absentee voting.

Heuer sent a letter to Republican lawmakers on Monday asking for their support for their efforts. You can find that letter below. Governor Tony Evers told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel over the weekend he would veto any bills putting restrictions on voting, including the definition of “indefinitely confined.” That has been a major focus of legal challenges against Wisconsin’s results, including from the Wisconsin Voters Alliance. State Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu has suggested allowing clerks to count absentee votes before election day, something Governor Evers is open to allowing.
