GAB Approves Election Plan

The Government Accountability Board (GAB) approved a five year plan this week on conducting state elections. GAB is the state agency responsible for administering election and ethics laws in Wisconsin.

The State Election Administration Plan approved by GAB seeks to improve election administration, voter participation, administrative efficiency, and protect voting integrity. The Plan is designed to ensure Wisconsin’s compliance with the federal Help America Vote Act (HAVA) requirements. Also included in the Plan is a proposal to study the use of the Internet in voting and early voting rather than the current absentee ballot system.
