Sewell vs RUSD Supreme Court "Contested elections"
H.O.T. supported This case involves Wis. Stat. 7.54 "Contested elections". which provides: In all contested elections cases, the contesting parties have the right to have the ballots opened and to have all errors of the inspectors, either in counting or refusing to count any ballot, corrected by the board of canvassers or court deciding the contest. The ballots and related materials may be open only in open session of the board of canvassers or in open court and in the presence of the official having custody of them. The petitioners ask the Supreme Court to review Wis. Stat. 7.54 in challenging parties the right to review in open court ballots they assert were miscounted such that an incorrect election outcome will be sustained unless the errors alleged by the challengers are corrected by the circuit [court]?
