Look for a “Zuckerbucks” constitutional amendment on the statewide ballot next spring.
Zuckerbucks refers to grants many municipalities relieved for the 2020 election from a group largely funded by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. Most of the money went to the state’s five largest municipalities. The Constitutional Amendment has already passed the legislature once. It would need to do that both again before appearing on the statewide ballot in April. It would prohibit the use of private money or equipment to administer elections in Wisconsin.
A second amendment which would prohibit non citizens from voting in local state or national elections is slated for the November 2024 ballot. Both proposed amendments were the subject of a public hearing at the Capitol on Tuesday.
