WisGOP Joins Amicus Brief Opposing Ballot Drop Boxes

[Madison, WI] – Yesterday, the Republican Party of Wisconsin joined the Republican National Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee in filing an amicus brief in Teigen v. Wisconsin Elections Commission. The brief opposes the use of ballot drop boxes, which are not permitted under state law, in 2022 elections.

Wisconsin’s election laws only allow for the delivery of absentee ballots by mail or in-person, but in 2020, the Wisconsin Elections Commission unilaterally ignored state law and acted beyond their authority to allow the use of ballot drop boxes. 

“The notion that our elections must follow the law isn’t controversial, and the Wisconsin Elections Commission cannot unilaterally decide to sidestep the law,” said Republican Party of Wisconsin Chairman Paul Farrow. “Republicans are fighting back against unlawful practices that help undermine voter confidence.”
