Governor Evers Crosses the Line—Again
This week on Tuesday, September 22, 2020, Governor Evers declared another 60-day statewide Public Health Emergency (Executive Order #90) that begins today and continues through November 21, 2020. He also issued Emergency Order #1 which mandates “face coverings” (aka, “masks”) statewide. This is the governor’s third statewide 60-day emergency declaration dealing with COVID-19. Constitutional experts have told us the second and this third statewide emergency declaration are illegal. Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty have already filed a lawsuit against the second emergency declaration. It was filed in Polk County on behalf of three plaintiffs. Listen to WILL’s president and General Counsel Rick Esenberg discuss the lawsuit and the governor’s most recent emergency declaration HERE.

Sample Ballots Now Available
And what’s this we hear about referenda questions?
Julaine Appling explains, “Probably 99% of the referenda on your November 3 ballot, unless you have something coming from a school district to increase the mil rate or allocate extra funding, etc., are “nonbinding” referenda. They are “advisory” referenda only, meaning they are put there to get a sense of the will of the people on a particular issue. Many referenda questions on issues such as the legalization of marijuana, redistricting (such as the example above), and more, are put out there by liberal progressives who are trying to make people think these are binding referenda. Again, they are NOT binding and, in my opinion, don’t need a vote at all.”
If you have any questions about the elections (ballots, referenda, how to find your polling place, etc.), click HERE for answers on Vote Right Wisconsin or call our office at 608-268-5074 (Madison) or 866-849-2536 (toll free).
From The Hill: “President Trump on Wednesday announced he will sign an executive order he says would ensure all babies born alive, including those born prematurely or that survive abortions, receive medical care, in an appeal to conservative and religious voters.
‘Today I am announcing that I will be signing the born alive executive order to assure that all precious babies born alive, no matter their circumstances, receive the medical care that they deserve. This is our sacrosanct moral duty,’ Trump said.
“The text of the order was not available after the announcement, making it unclear what it actually does. Trump said his administration would also increase federal funding for neonatal research.”

“Protecting life is always right regardless of when or where,” commented Julaine Appling, president of Wisconsin Family Action. “President Trump has an extraordinary track record of matching his actions to his words on this foundational issue. As an organization dedicated to protecting the sanctity of human life, we are incredibly grateful for this pro-life announcement.”

Wisconsin Legislature Appeals Ruling
A federal judge in Wisconsin has extended the deadline for an absentee ballot to be mailed and to be received by the clerks’ offices. If this order stands, then it impacts the upcoming November 3 election. The judge ordered that absentee ballots will count if they are postmarked by November 3 and received by November 9. Currently, ballots must be received in the clerks’ offices by the close of the polls on Election Day, which is 8 p.m. statewide.
The order also extends the voter registration deadline to Oct. 21 and allows those who make absentee ballot requests on time but who don’t receive them in time for Election Day to get replacement ballots via email or through the state’s website between Oct 21-29.
In addition, poll workers in the state will be allowed to work in any county rather than just where they reside.

On Wednesday, September 23, in a not-so-surprising response to the order, the Wisconsin legislature appealed the ruling. Read more HERE.
Julaine Appling, WFA president, responds, “This is the right thing for the state legislature to do at this time. Given how close we are to the election, these changes ordered by this federal judge just further confuse people in an already confusing time. Thank you to the senate and assembly leadership for stepping up and getting this done. Conservatives need to push back hard against efforts to suppress the conservative vote by keeping people confused about how and when to vote.”
