Statutory Date Due:  Thursday, December 6, 2012

The GAB-190 Form for the November 6, 2012 Presidential and General Election is now posted on the Government Accountability Board’s (G.A.B.) website.  The GAB-190 and Help Guide can be found at http://gab.wi.gov/forms/gab-190-general-election-2012. No substantial changes to the form have been made. However, the GAB-190 Help Guide has been updated to incorporate improvements made to WEDCS and the new Wisconsin Voter Information site, MyVote.WI.gov.

The Help Guide contains useful guidance on how to provide the most accurate information for each line item.  The GAB-190 is available with both a fillable and non-fillable version at the website address listed above.  By statute, the information on the GAB-190 form is required to be entered into the Wisconsin Election Data Collection System (WEDCS) within 30 days of the Partisan Primary, by December 6, 2012.

Special Note:  Please do not mail a paper copy of your GAB-190’s to the Wisconsin Accountability Board.  Instead, please enter the GAB-190 information into WEDCS.  A Friendly Reminder:  The information on the Cost of Elections only needs to be provided once for each municipality only – not for each Reporting Unit.

Statutory Authority to Request Information: Wis. Stat. § 5.05(14). “Information from County and Municipal Clerks.”  The board may request information from county and municipal clerks relating to election administration, performance of electronic voting systems and voting machines, and use of paper ballots in elections. Local election officials are required to provide information requested under § 5.05 (14) to the Board upon request. Wis. Stats. § 7.10 (10), 7.15 (13).

Should you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Help Desk at gabhelpdesk@wi.gov, or
