Wisconsin Republicans send election bills to governor

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Assembly has sent bills to Gov. Tony Evers that would make it more difficult for the elderly and disabled to cast absentee ballots and prohibit officials from filling in missing information on the envelopes of returned absentee ballots.

Evers is expected to veto all of the Republican-backed measures that passed Tuesday. Supporters are pushing more than a dozen election bills in the wake of former President Donald Trump’s loss in Wisconsin to President Joe Biden.

Democrats say Republicans are trying to make it more difficult for Democrats to cast ballots.
