WisGOP Statement on Teigen v. Wisconsin Elections Commission

[Madison, WI] – Today, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled that the use of ballot drop boxes and ballot harvesting is illegal. The Republican Party of Wisconsin has long disputed the abuse of ballot drop boxes as creating a massive risk of fraud by allowing additional individuals to handle ballots, and joined the RNC and NRSC in an amicus brief in this case.

In response to the ruling, the Republican Party of Wisconsin released the following statement from Chairman Paul Farrow:

“Today’s ruling is a massive victory for election integrity. Democrats have long abused the practice of ballot harvesting, which undermines voter confidence by interfering with the appropriate chain of custody of ballots – but with today’s decision, they’ll be forced into a fair fight that holds them accountable for their record.”
