Head Of Elections Commission Responds To Racine County Sheriff

Wisconsin Elections Administrator Meghan Wolfe says she’s not resigning.

The state Elections Commission held an emergency meeting Thursday night, and refuted allegations from the Racine County Sheriff. Christopher Schmaling claimed the commission broke the law when they kept special voting deputies out of nursing homes last year during the pandemic.

Schmaling alleges staff at one facility in Racine County helped fill-out ballots for people who were unable to do it themselves. Commission chair Anne Jacobs said they did not break the law. Several Republican lawmakers want Wolfe to resign. Wolfe called the investigation “blatantly partisan and coordinated.”
