Madison, WI – Earlier today, The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (“WILL”) filed a lawsuit in Waukesha County alleging the Wisconsin Elections Commission (“WEC”) illegally approved the use of a federal voter registration form that both fails to ask for all information required under state statute and requests additional information not authorized in state statute. Senator Stroebel (R – Cedarburg) issued the following statement regarding the lawsuit:

“I would like to once again thank WILL for working diligently to ensure government is actually following the law, especially when it comes to government actors who have a track record of side-stepping the laws to which they are bound. I look forward to see what defense, if any, WEC has for the very concerning allegations in the complaint. In light of recent high-profile cases, such as Teigin v. WEC, where WEC was found to have acted in violation of state law, everyone should watch this challenge closely.”

“While we need to allow the judicial process play out, the complaint appears to point to yet another example of WEC issuing guidance that contravenes state law. Wisconsin law dictates the manner in which Wisconsin’s elections are to be administered, and it is very concerning this is, allegedly, something WEC overlooked when it decided to approve the use of the registration form at issue.”

Sen. Duey Stroebel represents the 20th Senate District which includes portions of Ozaukee, Washington, Fond du Lac, Sheboygan and Calumet counties.
