MILWAUKEE – Peter Peckarsky, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate sent the following letter to the Wisconsin Elections Committee today in relation to two previously filed Notices of Claim.

Dear Members of the Wisconsin Elections Commission:

Article III, Section 3 of the Wisconsin Constitution states: “All votes shall be by secret ballot.”

As you know, on Oct. 26, 2021 my counsel served a Notice of Claim on the Attorney General of Wisconsin essentially asking him to advise you that Wis.Stat. 7.52(3)(a) is unconstitutional in that it requires information identifying the voter who cast the ballot to be placed on absentee ballots centrally counted in the Wisconsin municipalities listed on the website of the Wisconsin Elections Commission as municipalities which centrally count absentee ballots.

I urge you to consult with the Attorney General promptly so you may arrange for all future Wisconsin elections to be conducted in a manner which complies with the Wisconsin Constitution’s requirement of a secret ballot and fully protects the right of all the people of Wisconsin to be governed only by officials elected entirely by secret ballot.

As you may also know on Dec. 20, 2021 my counsel served a second Notice of Claim on the Attorney General of Wisconsin which raises issues as to whether Electronic Voting Systems (“EVS”), as defined in Wis.Stat. section 5.02 (4m), are being used in a manner which violates various Wisconsin statutes. The second Notice also raises the issue of whether the Wisconsin Elections Commission (“WEC”), given the facts and public records produced by the WEC pursuant to Wis.Stat. section 19.35, even had the statutory authority to certify one or more EVS for use in Wisconsin.

I urge you to consult with the Attorney General promptly so you can arrange for all future Wisconsin elections to be conducted in a manner which complies with the Wisconsin statutes relating to Electronic Voting Systems.

Sincerely,

Peter Peckarsky
