Wisconsin Republicans want to limit ballot drop boxes
February 25, 2021 6:55AM CST
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Ballot drop boxes would not be allowed anywhere other than election clerk offices in Wisconsin under a new Republican-authored proposal in the state Legislature.
Another bill unveiled Wednesday would require that only voters, not elections officials, could fill out information on absentee envelopes. The latest bills add to a growing list of GOP-authored measures addressing issues raised by former President Donald Trump and his supporters following President Joe Biden’s narrow win.
The bills are all-but certain to be vetoed by Democratic Gov. Tony Evers, who has spoken out against GOP attempts to make absentee voting more difficult.
