State Elections Administrator Responds to Calls for Her Resignation

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2021 -- 1:01 PM

(Bob Hague, WRN) State elections administrator Meagan Wolfe says she won't resign.

Wolfe spoke with reporters on Monday, responding to Republican legislators demanding her resignation. “They think I’m an easy target. I’m not.” Calls for resignations from Wolfe, as well as the resignations of all six elections commissioners, are in response to accusations by Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling.

He alleges the Commission broke the law by telling election clerks to mail absentee ballots to nursing homes rather than sending in special voting deputies. “I do think that this is partisan politics at its worst. But at the same time I have an obligation as the state’s non-partisan election official, to rise above it.”     

Wolfe said the commission followed the law because nursing homes were not allowing in election workers during the pandemic.
