The state's Government Accountability Board is considering changes to how elections are held in Wisconsin.
A panel of election experts is meeting in Madison Tuesday to discuss the GAB's proposed five-year plan. Board spokesman Reid Magney says they'll discuss whether the state should explore several options for changing how votes are cast in Wisconsin.
Those include moving primary election dates and allowing people to register to vote by phone or online. The proposal would also look at ways to streamline absentee voting and improving polling places.
Magney says many Wisconsinites have made it clear they want to make voting easier, and the proposal tries to accomplish that goal.
Tuesday's hearing will also allow public comment. Magney says they're hoping to hear from people on how the possible changes could impact their ability to vote.
The GAB is expected to act on the proposal on August 10th.
