Wisconsin Democrat Governor Tony Evers vetoed Republican-led election legislation related to absentee ballots.
Lawmakers are unable to override the Governor’s veto as no Democrats supported the legislation upon its passing. The legislation included regulations surrounding requesting absentee ballots with a voter ID every year, rather than applying once and automatically revealing ballots for every election.
Those in opposition suggest the rules are not beneficial to election integrity, but rather present hurdles for voters and therefore are a form of suppression. In continued efforts to prevent election alterations primarily supported by the right, Evers told two Wisconsin counties to not comply with subpoenas to undergo election investigations.
With reference to the ongoing Maricopa county audit, he said, “Hell no. You’ve seen what’s going on in Arizona. It’s a clown show.” In the 2020 Presidential Election, Joe Biden beat incumbent Donald Trump by less than 21,000 votes in Wisconsin. Persistent claims of election fraud in swing states such as Wisconsin and Arizona have led to investigations, audits, and new election regulations.
