Washington, D.C. – Today, RITE helped secure yet another victory for election integrity in Wisconsin when a Dane County Circuit Court rejected an attempt by an extreme left-wing group to allow the counting of invalid ballots in the upcoming election. Just last month, in a case called White v. Wisconsin Elections Commission, plaintiffs supported by RITE blocked local officials from filling-in missing address information from ballot certifications that must accompany mail-in ballots. Today’s decision protects the victory in White from frivolous attack and means that invalid ballots missing information required by both Wisconsin law and the Wisconsin Elections Commission will not pollute results in the upcoming election.

Derek Lyons, RITE’s President and CEO, issued the following statement:

“This lawsuit was a desperate attempt by extreme leftwing groups to enable the counting of invalid ballots in the upcoming election. RITE’s work to secure the correct outcome in this case is another in a string of victories for Wisconsin voters and for transparency, consistency, and integrity in elections across the state.”
