Vos announces elections committee hearing for next week

MADISON, Wis. — Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and Majority Leader Rep. Jim Steineke have announced the Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections will host a public hearing on the 2020 presidential election.

The meeting will be held Dec. 11 at 10 a.m. in the Wisconsin State Capitol.

A news release said the committee has spent the past month reviewing thousands of complaints on the election.

“With numerous concerns brought forward, we will proceed with the election investigation,” Vos said in a statement. “We must ensure that every legal vote was counted and begin working to eliminate questionable practices that undermine the integrity of the vote.”

Although misinformation has spread in the weeks following Election Day, officials have not encountered any evidence of voter fraud in the state.

Chair Rep. Ron Tusler will report his findings to the committee members and invite speakers to testify.

“The goal of the ongoing investigation is transparency. Wisconsin voters deserve fair and accurately counted elections. I look forward to hearing from eyewitnesses, experts and election officials about alleged issues in the November 3rd election,” Tusler said.

The hearing will be livestreamed on WisconsinEye.
