HQ Attorneys Richard Saks, Michele Sumara, and Barbara Quindel advised and represented the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin in successfully pressuring the Wisconsin Elections Commission to reverse course on a needlessly strict policy that would have disenfranchised thousands of absentee ballots due to a technicality for the upcoming November 8 election.
