Wisconsin Drop Box Challenge

Teigen v. Wisconsin Elections Commission

Lawsuit filed by conservative group Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL) against the Wisconsin Elections Commission challenging the legal status of drop boxes for absentee voting. The complaint asks the court to ban the use of drop boxes and require that voters mail or return their own completed ballots to designated officials. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) was granted intervention in the case to protect the use of drop boxes ahead of the 2022 U.S. Senate elections. Wisconsin Faith Voices for Justice, League of Women Voters of Wisconsin and Disability Rights Wisconsin also intervened in the case. A hearing on the plaintiffs’ motions for a preliminary injunction and summary judgment is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 16.
