The state Elections Commission will seek legislative approval to add three staffers, after five were vetoed by Governor Scott Walker in the new state budget. The head of the agency’s board, Mark Thomsen, says two of the new people would boost security in the state’s voting systems after reports that Russians tried to hack those systems in the 2016 presidential contest. Elections’ administrator Mike Haas says his office is also “falling behind” in its “normal and traditional” tasks — and the rest of us might not see it until its gets closer to next year’s elections. Haas says existing state and federal money could pay for the three new positions, but it’s likely that legislative approval would be necessary.
