Appointments : Firing Meagan Wolfe for Wisconsin Elections Commission Administrator

Bill Description

Wisconsin elections administration depends on thoughtful, steady-handed, nonpartisan leadership to be implemented fairly and efficiently. Administrator Wolfe is an exemplary nonpartisan leader who administered an election during a global pandemic and ensured that the work of the clerks around the state continued effectively. She has remained unquestionably equipped and committed to administering the work of the Wisconsin Elections Commission.

Current Status

On September 14, 2023, Republicans attempted to remove Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) Administrator Meagan Wolfe from office, despite the Wisconsin Department of Justice's determination that there was no administrator appointment before the Senate. Administrator Wolfe is continuing to serve as the WEC Administrator unless a court rules that she must step down, or the 6 WEC Commissioners vote to remove her.

Ask your senator to oppose firing Meagan Wolfe for Wisconsin Elections Commission Administrator.
