In today's teleconference the Wisconsin Elections Commission will go into closed session to discuss the multiple lawsuits pending about the April 7 election in Wisconsin. The litigation discussion will take place in closed session. 

They will also discuss other topics including guidance to clerks on the issue of whether people may declare themselves indefinitely confined for the purpose of obtaining an absentee ballot without providing voter ID. This has been happening in Dane and Milwaukee Counties and has drawn the ire of some Republicans.

The commission is currently in closed session and expected to return between 4:45 and 5 PM.

Additionally, the board will take up issues of advice and supplies to be given to poll workers on proper sanitation and social distancing during the election.
