WisGOP Moves to Intervene in Lawsuit Aimed to Rewrite Wisconsin’s Election Laws

March 26, 2020

[Madison, WI] –  The Republican Party of Wisconsin moved to intervene in federal court to block the City of Green Bay’s attempt to rewrite our election laws by eliminating in-person voting and ensure that municipal clerks follow all election laws on Thursday. Upon moving to intervene, the Republican Party of Wisconsin issued the following statement from Chairman Andrew Hitt: 

“Emergency orders by Gov. Tony Evers do not change our election laws. Clerks must continue to verify voter identification, hold in-person absentee voting hours, open the polls on election day and not circumvent photo ID laws by asserting everyone is indefinitely confined.”
