The Honorable, The Legislature:
I am writing to seek your preliminary feedback on the most viable dates for changing the State's September Partisan Primary. A date change for the September Partisan Primary is needed in order to comply with the requirements of the federal 2009 Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act.
Issue: To which date should the Wisconsin September Partisan Primary be moved in order to comply with requirements of the federal 2009 Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act?
Background: The Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment (MOVE) Act requires all states to distribute an official ballot that contains federal offices, i.e. President, Vice-President, U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives, to military and overseas voters no less than 45 calendar days prior to the election; if the voter has submitted an absentee ballot request. Wisconsin's September Primary is scheduled the second Tuesday in September which, combined with current statutory ballot deadlines, makes it impossible to meet the MOVE Act's 45-day requirement. Simply stated, the Wisconsin September Partisan Primary must be moved.
The Government Accountability Board's staff has met and will continue to meet with local election officials (municipal and county clerks) and with concerned and interested constituents, customers, and stakeholders to gather broad input on viable recommendation for consideration by the Governor and Legislature on possible new Partisan Primary dates.
