Evers to include election law changes in budget proposal

Gov. Tony Evers announced this morning his budget will call for a series of changes to election laws, including automatically registering voters when they get driver's licenses and allowing clerks to begin canvassing absentee ballots the day before an election.

Evers' budget also will seek to overturn several changes to election laws Republicans approved while they had full control of the Capitol. That includes allowing someone to vote in a municipality or ward if they've lived there for at least 10 consecutive days before an election. Republicans changed that requirement to 28 days.
