The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty shortly said WILL, a conservative group, stated that its election commission committed a crime when it didn’t eliminate the voters from rolls after they didn’t answer for 30 days to a mailing effort in 2019. According to them, it was supposed to mean that those moved out of state.
Moreover, this lawsuit was introduced in 2019, and on the list were 234,000 people. Neither one of those people, who remain, voted in the 2016 election.
However, this is the local election officials’ job, not the state election commission.
Justice Brian Hagedorn spoke for the majority: “There is no credible argument that it does.”
Regarding the dissenting judges’ statement, both state and local officials are equally responsible for clearing up voter rolls from the mover-out citizens.
“The majority’s decision leaves the administration of Wisconsin’s election law in flux, at least with respect to ensuring the accuracy of the voter rolls,” –Justice Rebecca Bradley spoke for the minority.
According to the WILL head, Rick Esenberg, the ruling represented “a disappointing setback.”
“This is a disappointing setback for those who expect Wisconsin state agencies to follow the law … WILL remains committed to the rule of law and to a reasonable set of election rules that acknowledges that the right to vote involves” convenience, accuracy, integrity,”
Dem. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, after the victory, said the “mass removal of legitimately registered voters would have been shamefully unfair.”

According to a watchdog, the Pennsylvania state, this week decided to remove the deceased voters from rolls. They discovered 21,000 dead registrants, some thousands of them had died decades ago.
