Voted YES on new state-funded absentee voting hours

Excerpts from legislation: Excerpts from veto message: I am approving in-person absentee voting between Monday and Friday from 8 AM to 7 PM, and prohibiting in-person absentee voting on legal holidays. I am vetoing hiring individuals to assist with in-person absentee voting. I object to a new state expenditure for a function traditionally performed by local governments. We should all be focused on ensuring the integrity of the voting process by making it harder to cheat.

Legislative outcome: Bill passed Senate 17-16-0 on March 12 (Sen. Vuikmir voted YEA); passed House 56-38-5 on March 20; vetoed by Governor Walker on March 27

CC:Appoint strict Constitutionalist judges.

Vukmir supports the CC survey question on judicial constitutionalism

The Christian Coalition Voter Guide inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Appointing Judges Who Will Adhere to a Strict Interpretation of the Constitution' Christian Coalition's self-description: "Christian Voter Guide is a clearing-house for traditional, pro-family voter guides. We do not create voter guides, nor do we interview or endorse candidates."
