GOP wins lawsuit over ballot box transparency in Green Bay, Wisconsin

A Wisconsin judge on Wednesday granted the Republican National Committee’s request for an injunction ordering the district clerk to stop violating state laws that allow the public to observe the election and voting process, including during in-person absentee ballots .

The judge approved the RNC request just hours after it was submitted, which the RNC credited as another electoral integrity gain in the 2022 cycle.

“In less than 24 hours, the Green Bay RNC successfully sued and won to ensure the city’s Democratic election officials are following the law in Wisconsin,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement. “Bipartisan election observation is a constitutional right in Wisconsin and now the Green Bay Clerk must let them in the room to observe.”

“We are grateful that the court awarded Wisconsinites a quick and decisive victory, and the RNC will continue to fight for election transparency statewide,” she added.

The RNC filed the lawsuit Wednesday morning against Green Bay County Clerk Celestine Jeffreys, who allegedly barred members of the public from “observing all aspects of the in-person mail-in ballot process that has been ongoing at the city clerk’s office since Oct. 25,” it said it in legal acts.

According to the RNC, Green Bay had “unlawfully restricted Republican Party observers and kept them outside of the room where the in-person absentee ballot was taking place.”

The RNC said it tried to work with Green Bay, but officials there “refused to give us proper access as required by Wisconsin election laws,” leading to the lawsuit.

The city has until 2:00 p.m. CDT to comply with the order.

Wednesday’s lawsuit is the 75th lawsuit filed by the RNC this election cycle, many of which have been successful, including most recently Tuesday in Pennsylvania, where the state Supreme Court echoed the RNC’s arguments counting misdated or undated mail-in ballots.
