Wisconsin officials to discuss changing poll laws

MADISON, Wis. (AP Wisconsin officials are considering lifting the ban on camera usage by election observers.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports the state elections board will meet Monday to vote on proposed changes to election observer rules. The Republican-controlled Legislature proposed the ban reversal.

Election observers have been prohibited from shooting photos and video at the polls for the past eight years.

Officials will also discuss other potential changes to polling place regulations. Other proposed amendments include designating inspectors to handle questions and providing information about observers.

Staff members of the state Government Accountability Board say the administrative changes aren't meant to burden local election officials.
