Unlike in most other states, Wisconsin’s Secretary of State does not administer elections, but this is designated instead to the bipartisan Wisconsin Election Commission. Whether that authority will be transferred back to the Secretary of State’s office is a central issue in this race.

The Issues

Ease of Voting

Expand or limit voting opportunities, such as mail voting, early voting, and more voting locations?

Doug LaFollette (D)

No position found; his office has lacked the authority to administer voting rules.

Amy Loudenbeck (R)

Limit. Says: “Voting is a right, absentee is a privilege.” “Voting in person is the most secure way to make sure your votes are cast.”

Gerrymandering / Redistricting

Support nonpartisan redistricting as a way to address charges of partisan gerrymandering?
