Election Reform Legislation Vetoed by Governor

Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement regarding the governor’s vetoes of much-needed election reform legislation.

“The governor is making another momentous mistake with his veto pen. While he claims these bills are ‘anti-democracy,’ his actions speak louder than words. He is satisfied with the status quo and refusing to improve future elections.

“These bills closed loopholes, standardized procedures, established uniformity, guaranteed only the voter can correct their own ballot and protected votes of seniors in long-term care.

“I am very disappointed Governor Evers refuses to do the right thing.”
