The Government Accountability Board has now posted the GAB-190 form for the April 3, 2012 Presidential Preference Vote and Spring Election on the G.A.B. website: http://gab.wi.gov/forms/gab-190-spring-election-2012

The GAB-190 form has gone through some changes in order to comply with recent Wisconsin Acts and legislative requests.  Due to a growing interest from both the public and the legislature, the addition of the cost of statewide elections has been added to the GAB-190 form.  Legislation such as Act 23, Act 75 and Act 115 require additional reporting requirements.  Questions regarding the return of absentee ballots, a breakdown of why provisional ballots were cast, and other changes are now reflected on the GAB-190 form.

Statutory Authority to Request Information:  Wis. Stat. § 5.05(14).  “Information from County and Municipal Clerks.”  The board may request information from county and municipal clerks relating to election administration, performance of electronic voting systems and voting machines, and use of paper ballots in elections.  Local election officials are required to provide information requested under § 5.05 (14) to the Board upon request. Wis. Stats. § 7.10 (10), 7.15 (13).
