MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel says he plans to once again send what he’s calling “election integrity teams” around the state on Election Day.
The Republican attorney general announced Wednesday that the teams will be made up of assistant attorney generals and state Justice Department special agents. They’ll monitor polls in Brown, Dane, Outagamie and Milwaukee counties as well as the cities of Eau Claire, Kenosha, La Crosse, Racine, Stevens Point, Waukesha and Wausau.
The teams will look for electioneering, observer misconduct and wrongful denial of the right to vote.
The Justice Department started sending such teams out in 2004. The agency also has deployed them in 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014.
