Elections Commission Reports Moving Election Could be Costly


The state Elections Commission reports that GOP plans to move Wisconsin’s 2020 presidential primary from April to March would cost at least $7 million. 

This move comes as part of a sweeping package of legislation in this lame-duck session. Moving the primary would create three elections in three months – with the state primary in February, the presidential primary in March, and the state general election in April. 

A commission memo estimates a third election would run between $6.4 and $6.8 million – not including all local, training, and software update costs. 

It also warns of logistical hurdles, including administrating absentee ballots for two elections at the same time and a short deadline for post-election tasks while preparing for the next election.
