Nass Demands Action on Elections Commission Rules

(Bob Hague, WRN) A state lawmaker wants to compel action by the Wisconsin Elections Commission, regarding ballot drop boxes and errors on absentee ballot envelopes.
Republican state Senator Steve Nass co-chairs the Joint Committee for Review of Administrative Rules. He’s requested an executive session on the matters early next week.
In a press release, Nass said many voters no longer trust the Elections Commission to act in a fair and impartial manner in carrying out election law. The commission voted unanimously several weeks ago to begin the process of developing rules.
It issued guidance prior to the 2020 election. Many Republicans took issue with expanded use of drop boxes, particularly in Madison, where clerk’s staff also collected absentee ballots in city parks.
