Comments
LWVWI has no objection to the first three provisions of the bill but finds the removal of the three-foot minimum distance for observers unreasonable. The provision fails to protect voters’ private information, such as their driver license number.

Clerks felt the 3 feet utilized pre-covid elections was acceptable. The bill will be 0-3ft., and realistically will be 0ft., encroaching on poll worker's personal space. A minimum distance is needed.
