Decisions by law enforcement officials are completely independent of the Wisconsin Elections Commission, which has no role in filing criminal charges.

That being the case, it would be inappropriate for the Commission to comment further at this time on decisions by law enforcement entities to file charges for alleged election-related crimes.

As a state agency, the WEC will assist law enforcement agencies as needed but has no role in pursuing or denying prosecution in any criminal matters, which is a responsibility that falls with law enforcement.

The WEC stands by the integrity of the MyVote application. All forms of voting in Wisconsin, including by-mail absentee, are secure and reliable.
