Wisconsin election officials deadlock on culling voter rolls

22 Wisconsin lawmakers ask US DOJ to review ID law

Wisconsin voters whose registrations were challenged by a conservative law firm will remain on the voter rolls for now.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission deadlocked Monday on whether to comply with a judge’s order to remove anywhere from 144,000 to more than 200,000 names from voter rolls in the key swing state.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the commission’s three Republicans wanted to remove the voters in question but were blocked by the three Democrats on the commission. The affected voters are in heavily Democratic areas of Wisconsin, a battleground state in the 2020 presidential election.
