Complaint could make up to 234K Wisconsin voters ineligible

AP,  October 16, 2019

The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty argues that the state Elections Commission broke the law when it decided to wait up to two years, rather than 30 days, to make ineligible voters who may have moved. The complaint asks for that decision to be immediately revoked, which could lead to as many as 234,000 voters losing their eligibility until they can confirm their addresses or re-register.

The outcome could affect how many voters are able to cast ballots in both the April presidential primary and November 2020 general election in Wisconsin, a key swing state that both sides are targeting. ...

Voters who are made inactive will be able to re-register at the polls on election day if they have the required form of ID and proof of residence.
