Green Bay City Clerk Claims Ignorance of Election Law to Justify Voter Registration Violations

Based on her admission, Green Bay City Clerk Celestine Jeffreys, a Democrat, has not been following the recommendations of the Wisconsin Election Commission (WEC) or obeying Wisconsin election law.

Last month, she formally admitted to the WEC in a legal filing that she has not been conducting thorough investigations into all voters with undeliverable election day registration (EDR) postcards, nor has she been inactivating the voters’ registrations or referring their names to the district attorney, as required by statute.

Ms. Jeffreys claims in the filing that “she was unaware that she was required to do each of these things.” She promised the WEC that she would do better.

“Clerk Jeffreys has admitted not only that she was not following Wisconsin election law, but that she did not know the law. There is no excuse for election officials not knowing the laws and rules. Clerk Jeffreys is derelict in her duty to enforce Wisconsin’s election laws,” said J. Christian Adams, president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), a non-profit law firm that initiated the complaint against Ms. Jeffreys on behalf of three Green Bay registered voters.
