The League, in as part of the nonpartisan Wisconsin Election Protection coalition, recruited and trained volunteers to be election observers. The report summarizes on-site observations from 440 polling locations located in towns, villages and cities statewide. The observers noted significant improvements in election administration and polling place management since the statewide recall elections held in June 2012. The problems that were reported appeared to be site-specific, rather than a result of a systemic failure. We attribute the improvements to the enhanced training of local officials. It also helped the Government Accountability Board (GAB) clarified what constitutes acceptable proof of residence for voter registration, as well as the rules for election observers.
