(Madison, WI) — The Wisconsin Elections Commission says someone would have to file a formal complaint before Republican candidate for Governor Tim Michels would get in trouble.
Michels won his Tuesday Republican primary contest against former Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch. The businessman invited the media to come to watch him vote Tuesday and, in doing so, he showed his completed ballot to the cameras. That is technically a violation of Wisconsin election laws. The rule is in place to keep people from finding out how you voted. It is an effort to prevent electioneering or paying a person to vote a certain way. The commission won’t take any action unless the complaint is filed.
