Fair Elections Wisconsin is an independent organization working for elections that are accurate, fair, well administered, transparent, and convenient for voters. The process of voting should balance access and integrity, and should be as open as possible while maintaining ballot secrecy. Voting is the foundation of democracy and deserves a high priority among citizens and government. It is critical that there be a strong public trust concerning election procedures, and trust depends upon active citizens holding accountable legislators, administrators, and manufacturers.
