What was the Mistake?
Wisconsin Statutes Sections 5.64(1)(e)1. and 5.64(1)(es) allow independent candidates to
include a statement of principle, if any, in five words or less, along with their name on the ballot.
Due to an administrative error by state level election officials, county clerks in United States
Congressional District 2 did not receive all required information to include on the applicable
ballots before having those ballots printed.
