Wisconsin's elections board is considering changes to its model
ballot design following a lawsuit earlier this year that argued
the ballot was confusing and unfair.
Accountability Board was to vote Tuesday on what it wants a model
ballot to look like for the spring election. Counties are required
to "substantially follow" the model ballot but
ultimately local officials can design the ballots as they wish.
One of the issues
raised in the lawsuit filed by Republican legislative leaders was
that the fall model ballot was confusing because it did not have
shading or a line after the title of the office and the name of
the first candidate.
The board is set
to vote on a motion that would allow for lines on the spring model
