The Wisconsin Elections Commission deadlocked Wednesday on whether to undo a 2016 ruling that allows local clerks to correct mistakes on absentee ballot envelopes. Commission members have been pressured by Republicans to change the guidelines, but they took no action following a three-to-three vote. The Legislature’s joint rules committee voted last month to end an emergency rule that allowed ballot curing during the 2020 and 2022 elections. That committee couldn’t eliminate the full guidance without a vote by the Elections Commission.
