Wisconsin Elections Have No ‘Integrity Problem’ News Release Falsely
Claims Voter Registration System is Down
MADISON, WI – The Republican Party of Wisconsin’s claim that the Statewide Voter Registration System (SVRS) is broken is false, an Elections Board official said today.
“We can provide public officials and elected representatives with the facts,” said Kevin Kennedy, executive director of the State Elections Board. “Claims such as these undermine the public’s trust in Wisconsin’s election system.”
The Republican news release called the SVRS a “voting system,” and said
the State has already spent its budgeted $27 million on the project. Neither is true.
Kennedy said the party’s claims of systemic voter fraud are unsubstantiated.
“It is irresponsible to claim that voter fraud has resulted from use of the SVRS,” Kennedy added.
