The employment future for the head of the Wisconsin Elections Commission is unclear. The Journal Sentinel reports that state Senate Majority Leader Devin Lemahieu said he had “no idea” whether Elections Commission Administrator Meagan Wolfe will be confirmed for another term.
The bipartisan commission provides election guidance to hundreds of clerks across the state. The commission and Wolfe were targets of criticism by supporters of former President Donald Trump following his 2020 election loss. The agency was also criticized by Republican leaders over changes to voting procedures put in place during the coronavirus pandemic. Wolfe is a nonpartisan appointee who’s held the job since 2018.
