A lawsuit was filed today on behalf of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign's director and other plaintiffs seeking cancellation of the state's controversial $13 million contract with the global consulting firm Accenture to create and maintain a statewide voter registration system. The lawsuit argues that when state Elections Board director Kevin Kennedy signed the contract November 12, he did so without legal authority. The Elections Board never approved the contract, and did not even vote to authorize a Request for Proposals soliciting bids from private vendors.
