Memo on GAB190 for 2012 Spring Primary and possible upcoming changes_Final.pdf35.14 KB

As you know, several recently passed election laws including Wisconsin Act 23, Act 75, Act 43 and Act 44, as well as pending legislation in Assembly Bill 476 have had and will have a major impact on the administration of elections.  One noticeable impact of the recently passed and pending legislation is reflected in the increase in the amount of statistics and other information needed to be collected by municipal clerks and county clerks on the GAB-190 Election Voting and Registration Statistics Report.

Since clerks are focused on implementing redistricting as required by the 2010 Decennial Census results, and getting ready for the full implementation of the Photo Identification law that goes into full effect with the February 21 Spring Primary, we have decided to delay issuing a revised GAB-190 Form to comport with the new aforementioned Wisconsin Acts until the April 3, 2012 Presidential Preference and Spring Election at the earliest.

The GAB-190 version that was in effect for the 2011 Election Cycle will be used for the February 21, 2012 Spring Primary.  We simply do not want to over burden you at this time with a revised and expanded GAB-190 Form that will incorporate and accommodate changes and updates necessitated by the new election administration laws.

We appreciate the hard work being performed by municipal and county clerks during this unusually busy time.  Thank you.
