Senate Republicans unveil election reform tracker website

MADISON — Senate Republicans have launched a new election integrity tracker website, billed as a “one-stop landing page” to help voters more easily follow election reform legislation.

Legislative Republicans have authored at least a dozen election reform bills this session. Several conservative lawmakers have said election reform is the No. 1 concern they have heard from constituents following November’s presidential election.

Senate Republicans passed two more election integrity bills on Tuesday.The Assembly passed two, as well.

The Senate measures include everything from banning ballot harvesting and tighter enforcement of the state’s voter ID laws to checking outside groups from dumping money on election administration in Wisconsin. The latter reform follows Wisconsin Spotlight’s investigation into left-leaning organizations, funded by CEO founder Mark Zuckerberg, heavily involved in the November elections of Wisconsin’s five largest and most Dem-laden cities. A similar bill passed Tuesday in the Republican-contolled Assembly.

“This new site is designed to help the people of Wisconsin see our legislative efforts and simplify discussion surrounding election reform with friends and neighbors,” Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu’s office said. “Restoring trust in our state elections remains a top priority for Majority Leader LeMahieu and Senate Republicans.”

  • Thank you, have bookmarked the site and will regularly check it. This is the cornerstone of our heritage and must be honored. The passage of HR1/S1 by the federal government would be a declaration of war on the Constitution and must be stopped.
